Enables you to start a client-managed database transaction. This function returns the transaction handle that other control records can use and allows both BMC Remedy AR System and CMDB calls to be made in the same transaction.
Before using client-managed transaction functions, you can set the maximum number of client transactions and the transaction timeout parameters in either of the following ways:
- Update the Maximum Concurrent Transactions and Transaction Timeout fields on the Advanced tab of the Server Information form. (See Setting security options using Server information form settings.)
- Set the Client-Managed-Transaction-Timeout and Maximum-Concurrent-Client-Managed-Transactions options in the AR System Administration: AR System Configuration Generic UI form.
