BMC Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2017-Sep-1 contains the following additional product content for BMC Discovery 11.2 series:

Product content updates require appliance restart

When product content is added, the appliance is restarted as part of the update. You are given the opportunity to prevent the restart, though if you do so, none of the knowledge content will be installed.


Feature updates

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) credential UI now has the ability to import AWS credentials from csv files. When you create an AWS access key in the IAM console, you can download the new Access Key ID and Access Key Secret as a csv file. The Product Content update contained in the 2017-Sep-1 knowledge update contains an enhancement which enables you to upload the csv file and import the credentials.

For more information, see Discovering Amazon Web Services and Adding device credentials.
