Documentation for the Legacy web service does not clearly specify the permissions required to run the workflows. For example, users need to be assigned View Grid Status permission to run workflows using the legacy web service. If a user, who does not have this permission runs a workflow using the legacy web service, it fails.

Enhancements

The following enhancements are included in this service pack. 

Supported Remedy Single Sign-On versions

 Platform supports the following versions of Remedy Single Sign-On (RSSO):

  • RSSO 18.08 (External only)
  • RSSO 18.05 (External only)
  • RSSO 18.02 (External only)
  • RSSO 9.1.04 (External only)
  • RSSO 9.1.03.001 (Embedded and external)

Pagination added to the Grid Manager - Grid Permissions UI 

In earlier releases, a list of all active modules on the Grid are displayed on the Grid Manager - Grid Permissions tab. If the list of active modules is huge, the Grid Permissions UI consumes a lot of application memory and reduces the performance of the Grid.  Platform 8.0.01 onward, only five active modules are displayed on the Grid Permissions tab on one page and you can use the and options to view and manage permissions for the active modules. 

This enhancement has significantly improved the performance of the Grid Permissions UI. 

Infrastructure updates

 Platform version 8.0.01 includes the following infrastructure updates:

  •  Development Studio now supports Microsoft Windows 2016 and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 operating systems.
  •  Platform supports Microsoft SQL Server 2016 (Enterprise) for the metrics database.
  • Updated version of the Apache Cassandra database, version 3.11.2 is bundled with the   Configuration Distribution Peer. 
  •  Platform now uses Java version 1.8.0_162.

    Warning

    Platform 8.0.01 uses Java 8. Clients running on Java 7 may face issues with communication handshake due to incompatibilities between Java 7 and Java 8 versions. BMC recommends that you update Java version for clients to the latest supported Java version.
