Support policy

IBM Event Streams incorporates both IBM proprietary and open source components, including Apache Kafka. In case of a problem with any of these components, IBM will investigate, identify, and provide a fix when possible. Where the fix applies to an open source component, IBM will work with the open source community to contribute the fix to the open source project as appropriate.

If you encounter client-side issues when using Event Streams with clients that are not provided by IBM, IBM can assist you in working with the open source community to resolve those issues.

Continuous Delivery (CD) support model

IBM Event Streams uses the continuous delivery (CD) support model.

Ensure you stay current with the installation of CD update packages, as described in the continuous delivery life cycle policy. Product defect fixes and security updates are only available for the two most current CD update packages.
