IBM API Connect v5 End of Support

By SWETHA SRIDHARAN posted Thu March 10, 2022 12:44 PM

Six years have passed by in the blink of an eye and after 18 months of sharing details on v5 EOS, April 30, 2022, is almost here.  With significant innovations and a modern new UX in v10, we are certain that you will be delighted to continue your API journey with v10 of IBM API Connect. 
If you have not completed your migration, we've included numerous resources below to help you, from planning through execution.  If you need support for v5 after April 30, 2022, while migration continues, a support extension can be purchased until December 31, 2022. Please contact your IBM representative for more details.  You can also engage IBM Expert Labs with offerings available to accelerate migrations, for more details contact labs@us.ibm.com

Clarification:  End of support applies to software deployments.  This does not apply to SaaS plans that may still be based on v5.  This includes but is not limited to the Lite, Enterprise & Hybrid Enterprise plans on IBM Cloud.  Those on Reserved Instance, single-tenant SaaS deployments, will move from v5 to v10 deployments over time.

API Connect Upgrade Central: The destination to learn and plan your move.  Learn about v10, choices, and considerations during planning with links to all the detailed technical assets around migration.
