Retiring MobileFirst “Starter” Docker image from the Bluemix public registry

Share this post:

We’d like to inform you that we will be shutting down the ibm-mobilefirst-starter image on July 26, 2016. Here’s what you need to know:

  • End of Beta Date: July 26, 2016
    As of July 26, 2016, you will no longer be able to provision new ibm-mobilefirst-starter instances. However, existing instances will continue to be supported.
  • End of Beta Support Date: August 25, 2016
    For a period of 30 days after the End of Beta Date, through August 25, 2016, all existing instances will continue to be available to users through their Bluemix dashboard, and will continue to be supported.

Users are therefore asked to unprovision their ibm-mobilefirst-starter Container instance(s) prior to the End of Beta Support Date.

As always, we’re here to help! Please reach out to us in the support forums, or on Twitter.

—The Bluemix Team
