What is the Application Framework V2 update?

Previously, all QRadar applications ran on a base Operating System (OS) of CentOS 6.0x. However, by the end of 2020 and early 2021, QRadar will be transitioning to a new Application Framework v2 built on a containerized version of RedHat UBI 8.

The following document provides a high-level overview of the changes in the IBM QRadar App Framework.

Note: For a limited time, QRadar will continue to support all existing custom apps. However, following the transition period, all apps must use the new Application Framework.
