The Community Edition

The Community Edition of BMC Discovery is a version of BMC Discovery which is available for download. The community edition can be used to scan up to 100 devices in your production environment. When more than 100 inferred nodes have been created in the data store, you cannot create any new discovery runs and discovery is disabled. This prevents any accidental breach of the license agreement.

You are periodically reminded of the terms of this agreement by a pop up dialog. The dialog can be dismissed by clicking the Close button.

The dialog provides the following links:

  • Forums - opens the Community Forums.
  • Terms and Conditions - opens a page which shows the license terms of the Community Edition.
