Creating or modifying Upgrade Model Objects Jobs
BMC Server Automation lets you decide whether you want to upgrade policy-based objects — that is, component templates, BLPackages, and server object-based Snapshot and Audit Jobs — when you add a new version of a custom configuration object to your BMC Server Automation system.
Policy-based objects are not automatically upgraded to reference the new version. If you do want to upgrade them, one way to accomplish that is to run an Upgrade Model Objects Job. Alternatively, you can edit each of the policy-based objects so it includes the correct version of a custom configuration object.
For more information about upgrading custom configuration objects, see Upgrading custom configuration objects.
