Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

Clean up of old Docker images

When upgrading the version of Velocity the binary always includes downloading the latest Docker images as well. Clean up of the older versions introduces difficulty as sometime the versions don't align. E.g. version 2.5.2 of Velocity is using RabbitMQ version 3.8.9 and RCL Web Client version 2.2.0. If this clean up can happen during installation where old Docker images get cleaned up it would simplify things.

    Thank You for adding a new Idea to Urbancode Velocity.

    To clarify the decision why this has not been acceptes is the following:

    Using the Docker-Compose setup is for Trial/Evaluation purposes only, and you can always run a "docker system prune -a" to cleanup the local docker registry and storages (run it when the new version of UCV is up and running).

    For automatic removing Container Images from a K8s/OpenShift cluster would require much more RBAC rights than needed for installing UCV on them. Also the cluster admins should have their policies and automations which cleans up.

    Thank You again for your input!
