BMC Helix Discovery Update Calendar

There are two versions of BMC Helix Discovery:  

  • If you are using an instance of BMC Helix Discovery commissioned before 1 June 2021, you are using the standalone version of BMC Helix Discovery and should see Recent updates for information on updates and enhancements and the timing of their release.
  • If you are using an instance of BMC Helix Discovery commissioned after 1 June 2021, you are using the version of BMC Helix Discovery for BMC Helix Portal and BMC Helix AIOps users, and should see BMC Helix Discovery information for BMC Helix AIOps users for information on updates and enhancements and the timing of their release.

This calendar applies to both versions of BMC Helix Discovery, it describes the dates when significant enhancements or new capabilities will be launched, as well as defines our content update strategy and bug-fix schedule.

Non-production first, then production

Changes are applied to non-production instances one week before they are applied to production instances. The only exception to this will be when critical security related changes, or changes required to prevent future downtime are required. In such cases all instances are updated in unison.

Significant enhancement calendar

When BMC launches significant enhancements, new features, and other major changes to BMC Helix Discovery, it does so according to the following calendar. This is coordinated with other Helix Services (documented here).

TKU update schedule

BMC publishes monthly TKU updates for both BMC Helix Discovery and BMC Discovery customers. For BMC Helix Discovery, each month's TKU is applied in the following manner:

  • Non-production instances - First Wednesday of every month
  • Production instances - Second Wednesday of every month

Changes introduced in each TKU are documented on BMC Helix Discovery content reference.

Bug-fixes and minor improvements

Each week, BMC might apply bug fixes and/or minor enhancements to BMC Helix Discovery. As with other updates, non-production instances are updated first and production instances one week later. See the Helix Discovery Recent Updates page for details on what fixes are available each week.
