Bluemix Mobile dashboard update

Share this post:

Hello Bluemix Mobile users,

Many of you have used the UI Starter functionality on the Bluemix Mobile dashboard to rapidly prototype mobile apps and integrate Bluemix mobile services. UI Starters were built in partnership with Icinetic. Going forward we plan to let Icinetic continue their innovation around Rapid Mobile App Development capabilities as an independent service.

As a result, we are retiring UI Starters on January 31, 2017. Existing users are encouraged to migrate to Icinetic’s buildup.io service by the End of Support date to continue using the same capabilities.

What you need to know

End of Marketing: As of March 1, 2017, new UI Starter projects can’t  be created. However, existing projects will continue to be supported.

End of Support: For a period of 3 months after the service retirement date—through April 30, 2017 for Bluemix Public. All existing UI Starter projects will continue to be available to users through their Bluemix Mobile dashboard, and will continue to be supported. Any projects still provisioned as of the End of Support date will be deleted.

Icinetic intends for the buildup.io service to have the same template-driven experience including all the Bluemix service integrations that we currently support on UI Starters. Additional information will be provided about migrating your UI starter projects to the partner service in the near future.

Users are encouraged to explore and continue using Code Starters to get started with building an app. Code Starters lets you explore a wide variety of services on Bluemix and integrate them in a production ready mobile app. Read more on the following blog post to get started.
