I’m excited to walk you through the enhancements driven by our development team in February. Let’s jump in.

User Updates

Discover and purchase SaaS products from Red Hat Marketplace!

We’ve now expanded the Red Hat Marketplace catalog to include pure software as a service (SaaS). Now, you can discover, purchase, and take advantage of pure SaaS products from Red Hat Marketplace. This is a big development for our sellers, too, as you can now onboard and list SaaS products to Red Hat Marketplace.

Take advantage of enhanced features for bundled products

Sellers can include standalone product listings as a part of a bundled product offering. Now, when you view a listing with a product bundle, such as IBM Cloud Pak for Integration, you can view and visit listings for all of the individual products that are included in the bundle.

Seller Updates

Reduce the number of metering definitions for bundled products

To help streamline onboarding of several products at once, we now offer sellers a new metering definition template. The template supports a dynamic product ID field that flexibly rewrites usage reports per product.

Preview data during metering configuration

We can now provide a way for sellers to demo metering configurations to validate results. With this enhancement, you can sample meter definition results without requiring a report.
