    I've been searching the entire BMC website for Control-M Self Service 9.0.19 Releas Notes whitout success in order to know its compatibility with lower versions of Control-M/Enterprise Manager. Is Control-M Self Service 9.0.19 supported by Control-M/Enterprise Manager 9.0.18.200? Thanks in advance.

      Hi Alejandro. Thanks for your feedback. From what I understand, Control-M Self Service versions are fully synchronized with Control-M/EM in terms of new features. However, the activation media for Control-M Self Service is versionless, so if you activated Control-M Self Service with the most recent deliverable offered on our EPD site, it should work fine.
