Notify deprecated services on the Service creation page

I understand some of the older Mobile services like Push are being replaced by new services (IBM Push Notification). The old services have a grey icon instead of the normal coloured one. It would be really useful to have this information on the Service Creation page for the service that will be deprecated, along with the replacement service information.

    Hi Thanks for your feedback! More information on the deprecations just went live in the service catalogue, and we will be posting information on how to migrate very soon. You can keep track of the information:

    We currently have a "deprecated" indicator on services that have been deprecated in the catalog details, or service create page. If applicable, the service team is recommended to edit their service's description on that page to indicate deprecation date, end of support date, and replacement services.

    Clarification - you are asking on a service by service basis, there should be information in the service creation page about when it goes deprecated/end of life and replacement services?

    Could we also update the console to reflect upcoming plans for end of support?
