Vice President & Distinguished Engineer, Engineering and User Experience, Red Hat Marketplace

As we move towards the end of 2020, we continue to roll out new features and functionality for Red Hat Marketplace. Along with many updates to tagging, we recently announced one of our biggest updates of the year for developers: the rollout of trial clusters!

User Updates

Trying products is now even easier — you no longer need to bring your own OpenShift cluster

Users can now deploy product trials to a free Red Hat Marketplace cluster. Simply register your free trial cluster to your account and start deploying free trials.

Use ‘Location’ and ‘Environment’ tags for more granular tagging and help text for creating tags

Through the create tags section, you can now take advantage of ‘Location’ and ‘Environment’ tags. We’ve also added help text and examples for tag values to ease the creation of tag values.

Take advantage of more options to view product charges through tag filters

On the monthly charge overview chart on your dashboard, you can now filter product data when tags are applied.

See spend for unassigned projects through your dashboard

On the top spend charts through your dashboard, you can now see a category for products that haven’t been associated with a project or department tag.

Seller Updates

Download a report on new Trials for each product

On the partner application, we’ve added a new ‘Trials’ report for you that shows the number of active trials for each product you’ve listed. You can then download the report and work with the data in another application.
