Performing the BMC Digital Workplace installation
This topic provides an overview of how to perform the BMC Digital Workplace installation.
Before you begin
Complete the steps in Preparing for installation of BMC Digital Workplace.
Before you proceed with the installation, remember these tips:
- To protect data, use HTTPS to communicate with the Digital Workplace server. You can do so through a load balancer or reverse proxy, or by enabling HTTPS on the BMC Digital Workplace server.
- If using an Oracle database for your installation, verify that USERS and TEMP tablespaces exist. If they do not, create them. The installer creates the user schemas that reference these two tablespaces by default.
Note that BMC Digital Workplace patches are cumulative. You always install the latest available patch.

It is not clear from this documentation if patches are cumulative of if we can just install the latest patch (e.g. 20.02.03) directly on top of the base 20.02 platform, or if we have to run through patches 01, 02, and 03 sequentially
Hi Jeff Henke ,
BMC Digital Workplace patches are cumulative. You always install the latest available patch.
I will update the documentation to include this information.
