As a solution architect, I would like to provision ICLB (IBM Cloud Load Balancer) on a sepcified public VLAN

Goal: I want the provisioning form ( list up all public VLANs that currently exist under my account and allow me to choose one of the VLANs where ICLB will be provisioned. Alternatively, IBM Cloud accepts the request for provisioning ICLB on the specified VLAN through support ticket.

Current Workaround: It seems that the subnet which has the most available IPs will be taken to provision the public ICLB. We control where to provision ICLB by adjusting the number of available IPs on all active subnets to ensure the target subnet has the most available IPs at the time of provisioning. This approach is not sustainable as the infrastructure gets complicated.
