This space contains information about the BladeLogic Portal 1.2 release.
BladeLogic Portal is a web-based user interface that provides a subset of the functionality available in the BMC Server Automation Console. Designed for end users, BladeLogic Portal lets IT operations personnel execute common server configuration management activities, such as patching, compliance, provisioning, and software deployment.
This space commonly refers to BladeLogic Portal as "the portal."
Version 1.2 of BladeLogic Portal features the following enhancements:
When defining a Patch Analysis operation, you can now base the operation on a Patch catalog that was created in BMC Server Automation. In this way, you can specify the patches or patch groups that are used for analysis.
- LDAP authentication is now supported.
The installation program can now set up a database and install the BladeLogic Portal application. An extra step for database installation is no longer required. The installation program can also upgrade an existing installation by migrating the database and upgrading the BladeLogic Portal application.
Where to start
If you are an end user who sets up and executes operations and uses their results, see Using.
For some typical use cases that illustrate how to use the portal, see Examples - Using the portal for common tasks.
