BMC Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2020-Aug-1 is a deliverable for BMC Discovery 11.1, 11.2 and 11.3, and 12.0 series.

Product content updates require appliance restart

This TKU release contains product content additions. 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.

New features and enhancements

In this release TKU presents SSL/TLS Certificates discovery for Apache Webserver, Apache Tomcat and Nginx. For more details, refer to the TLS Certificates Discovery.

CMDB Sync mapping updates

Updates for the Configuration Items (CI) attributes. Attribute 'primary_capability' has been changed to the 'CDM_Capability_Type.Management_Controller' value for LDOM Control hosts.
For more information, please refer to (DRDC1-15527) in Jira.

Three new patterns added for Amazon Web Servers that synchronize all new nodes, accounts, organizations and OUs in CMDB.
For more information, please refer to (DRDC1-12383) in Jira and see Amazon Organizations, Amazon Accounts, Amazon Organizational Units.
