How different versions of bundled runtime pods managed via documentation by IBM BAW Team?

Refer to PMR TS012093883, in context of the need below, understand inbuilt packaged pods' versions for containerized BAW not available but I feel this is must for different architecture and integration requirements for various organization with today's options available with cloud and container world.

PMR statement given below:

We want to know different versions of bundled runtime pods with containerized BAW and CP4BA.

We know some information is available here

Request you to check with product team if github repos and also keep track of the different versions of bundled runtime pods with containerized BAW and CP4BA in any of the configuration .yaml files OR readme etc.

** I downloaded and searched packages but did not find any entry hence requesting.

Basically how different versions of bundled runtime pods managed via documentation by IBM BAW Team

Example: Containerized BAW comes with below mandatory runtime pods:

1.Workflow Server (JMS included)2.IBM Process Federation Server3.Elasticsearch4.IBM Business Automation Application Engine5.User Management Service (UMS)6.Business Automation Navigator(BAN)7.FileNet Content Platform Engine (Content Platform Engine)8.Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) 9. Content Services GraphQL

    Hi Team, Having different components' version bundled with BAW images would help to assess impact to integration components and other dependencies arising from enterprise environment. Please let me know what else is missing to supplement and keep moving this idea. Thanks

    Hi Christine,

    FYI, I opened an idea for the same issue, same customer (I did not know this idea existed):

    You can consider that as a duplicate idea. It has more backrounf information about the customer requirements.

    Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions.
