What's new for DevOps
- (Red Hat OpenShift) Change from cloudctl to ibm-pak for installing and upgrading air-gapped deployments
- Previous versions of API Connect used IBM Cloud Pak CLI (cloudctl) as the mirroring tool for
installing and upgrading in air-gapped environments. API Connect 10.0.1.12 uses IBM Catalog
Management Plug-in for IBM Cloud Paks (ibm-pak) instead. The ibm-pak plug-in extends the Red Hat
OpenShift CLI (oc command) capability and streamlines the process of delivering installation images
to the IBM Cloud Pak in an air-gapped environment.
For information on installing and upgrading API Connect on Red Hat OpenShift in an air-gapped environment, see Air-gapped installation and Air-gapped upgrade.
