  1. buenos días. Por que no hay traducciones en español,? hay en francés, alemán, la comunidad de habla hispana es muy grande, podrían considerarla por favor. saludos. jorge.

    1. Buenos días, Jorge. Muchas gracias por los comentarios. Yo notifiqué a Product Management y les pedí que consideraran planes para traducir la documentación al español. Le informaré a usted sobre cualquier novedad.

  2. Requiero saber si es posible realizar una integración y/o gatillar un evento desde un Control-M desde el Onpremise hacia la nube y vice versa. Esto dado a que la la inyección se realiza en el onpremise con control de la malla y el proceso en la nube y el control-m debe realizar procesos posteriores y es el que brindará la visibilidad del proceso completo.

  3. Deseo saber como activar emdesktop para Control M v 8 y poder exportar los archivos xml En la versión 7 lo utilizaba.

    1. Hi Rafael, For best results, I recommend that you approach BMC Support and leverage the AMIGO program. They will guide you through the optimal upgrade plan. I hope this helps, Yechezkel

  4. Where can I get control - M version 8 documentation ?

    1. Hi Mohammad,

      Although version 8 is no longer supported, you can still access the Control-M online documentation at I can't promise how much longer it will be available, though. I hope this helps.



  5. Buenas tardes, coincido con el comentario de Jorge, Por que no hay traducciones en español? Saludos, Cristian

    1. Gracias, Cristian. He transmitido su comentario a Product Management.
