Thank you for using IBM Watson IoT Driver Behavior

On December 22, 2017 we are retiring the IBM Watson IoT Driver Behavior

Here’s what you need to know:

End of marketing: December 22, 2017

As of December 22, 2017, the service tile will be removed from the Bluemix Public catalog and you will no longer be able to provision new instances. However, existing instances will continue to be supported.  Also, after December 22, 2017, new customers will not be able to order IBM Watson IoT Driver Behavior.

End of support: December 22, 2018

  • For a period of 360 days after the End of Marketing Date, all existing instances will continue to be available on the Services dashboard in the Bluemix console. In addition, IBM Watson IoT Driver Behavior Bluemix service will  continue to support all existing instances.
  • Also, any instance still provisioned at the End of Support Date will be deleted.
  • Please delete your IBM Watson IoT Driver Behavior   instances before the End of Support Date.

This change will affect all regions.
