Thank you for using IBM® Bluemix® Continuous Delivery. We’d like to inform you of an upcoming plan change.
Free plan replaced by Lite and Professional plans
The Continuous Delivery service currently offers only a Free plan. This plan will be retired on October 31, 2017. Starting on November 1, when you create service instances, you must select either the Lite plan or the Professional plan.
The Lite plan is free for organizations (orgs) that fall within these usage limits:
- No more than 5 users in the org
- No more than 500 Delivery Pipeline jobs run per month
- No more than 500MB of private Git Repos and Issue Tracking storage
The Professional plan removes the usage limits of the Lite plan and charges per user in the Bluemix org that contains the service instance. This plan is available only in billable accounts.
For details about the Lite plan limits and the Professional plan per-user charges, see the Continuous Delivery page in the Bluemix catalog starting on October 1, 2017.
If your org exceeds the capacity of the Lite plan during a month, certain actions in the Continuous Delivery service might be blocked and corresponding messages will be displayed. To resume normal operation, switch to the Professional plan. See the documentation for instructions to view your usage and change your plan.
Grace period for current users
Service instances that are created with the Free plan before October 31, 2017 will remain on that plan until December 31, 2017. Those service instances will be converted to the Lite plan on January 1, 2018. Depending on the usage in your org, you might need to switch to the Professional plan.
Projects that upgrade from IBM Bluemix DevOps Services at hub.jazz.net will use the Free plan, even if the upgrade occurs after November 1, 2017. Upgraded orgs will remain on the Free plan until the end of the year.
