Installing offline documentation

If you click the Help button from any BMC Remedy IT Service Management product, the Home page of the online product documentation is launched. For example, if you click the Help button from the Reconciliation Engine console of the BMC Atrium Core product, the online documentation of the Atrium Core product is displayed. Install the offline documentation only if you are bound by a firewall or do not have access to internet so that the documentation is accessible to you within your intranet.


  • The offline documentation is updated for major releases (X.x) and service packs (X.x.xx) only. No offline documentation is provided for patches.
  • The offline Help is not updated automatically. You must perform this task to update the offline Help.
  • The Localized PDFs are available only on the online Documentation portal. To access Localized PDFs, navigate to the PDFs page of every BMC Remedy ITSM suite product, for example the PDFs for BMC Atrium Core CMDB 9.1.04 are available at Open link .

  • The BMC Atrium Core offline documentation does not get installed correctly and is inaccessible. To resolve this issue, see Offline documentation installation issues.
  • If you do not install the offline documentation in a web server such as Tomcat, the search functionality of the offline Help does not work.
