- If you are using an external version of Remedy SSO, you must download the Remedy SSO installation file (9.1.02.001) from the BMC Atrium Orchestrator EPD site
To install this version, you must have Apache Tomcat version 7 or higher and Java 8 installed.
For more information about Remedy SSO and installing Remedy SSO, see .
- Remedy Single Sign-On versions 9.1.01.001 and 9.1.02.001 only support BMC Atrium Orchestrator high availability with an embedded database. Stand-alone RSSO versions 9.1.01.001 and 9.1.02.001 installations do not support HA with embedded DB.

This version of BAO does not support migrating information from Atrium Single Sign-On to Remedy Single Sign-On. You must recreate your users and roles.

RESTful API updates
This release includes the following REST API enhancements:

- You can run some REST API commands from activity peers (AP).
API call topics in the REST API BAO calls reference section indicate if you can run the call from the AP.
Development Studio updates
You can now concatenate strings with encrypted data. The concatenation process produces another encrypted data item.
String concatenation scenarios that use native XPath and XSLT functions do not support this feature; therefore, concatenating secure data with a string is not supported when using basic and advanced XPath and XSLT transforms.
Platform – Content compatibility
BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform 7.9.01 is certified with BMC Atrium Orchestrator Content 20.16.03.
BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform 7.9.01 uses Java 8, update 66. If you have created custom adapters, you might need to recompile the adapters with this version of Java. Some adapters might not work if they do not comply with the increased security standards enforced in this version of Java.
