    Hi Melvin,
    We do not announce an end date for the open beta period. The open beta is regularly refreshed and made available via the  IBM Mainframe DEV z/OS Connect EE site.
    The z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition open beta has a fixed expiration date to allow 90 days usage from the build date. After the expiration date is passed, any requests sent to z/OS Connect EE open beta will receive a response code 500 and an error message that the open beta has expired. 

    If you want to continue to use the z/OS Connect EE open beta after the expiration date, you must download a new release of z/OS Connect EE open beta. You do not need to make any changes to your configuration files, or API, API requesters or services etc, because these are stored in a separate USS directory structure identified by the  WLP_USER_DIR environment variable.

     

    UPDATE: Each time the open beta is refreshed, the refresh is announced in a blog, which now includes the actual expiry date for that specific open beta refresh. The blogs can be found in the z/OS Connect category of the IBM Mainframe development center: https://developer.ibm.com/mainframe/category/zos-connect/.

     

    Regards, Sue
