Retirement of IBM Cloud Schematics

Share this post:

Thank you for using the Schematics service on IBM Cloud. We’d like to inform you that we are retiring the Schematics service on March 30, 2018.

Here’s what you need to know:

End of Marketing Date: March 30, 2018

As of March 30, 2018 new Schematics instances cannot be provisioned. However, existing instances will continue to be supported.

End of Support Date: May 1, 2018

  • For a period of 30 days after the End of Marketing Date, through May 1, 2018 all existing Schematics environments will continue to be available on the Schematics dashboard via the IBM Cloud global navigation menu. All existing Schematics environments will also continue to be supported by Schematics.
  • Any environments still provisioned as of the End of Support Date will be deleted.
  • As needed, please download your Terraform logs associated with your environment(s) before the End of Support Date.
  • Please delete your Schematics environments before the End of Support Date.

Provisioning IBM Cloud Resources Going Forward

This announcement just pertains to the retirement of the IBM Cloud Schematics service. The IBM Cloud Provider — the Terraform middleware that lets you provision and manage IBM Cloud resources using the Terraform tooling — is still under active development and support.

Existing Schematics users are encouraged to download Terraform and the latest IBM Cloud Provider and run it locally on their machines. You can follow these instructions for downloading and installing Terraform and the provider. We will also be preparing a Docker container image and Helm chart to assist in running terraform in a containerized environment.

If you have any questions please reach out to us on the forums or social media.
