Retirement of IBM Watson IoT Context Mapping

Thank you for using IBM Watson IoT Context Mapping Service

On December 22, 2017  we are retiring the IBM Watson IoT Context Mapping Service

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.  After December 22, 2017, new customers will not be able to order IBM Watson IoT Context Mapping Service.

End of support: December 22, 2017

  • For a period of 365 days after the End of Marketing Date, all existing instances will continue to be available on the Services dashboard in the Bluemix console. IBM Watson IoT Context Mapping Bluemix service will continue to support all existing instances.

  • Do note, that any instance still provisioned at the End of Support Date will be deleted.

  • Please be sure to delete your IBM Watson IoT Context Mapping   instances before the End of Support Date.

This change will affect all regions.
