 I’d like a PDF of just selected information. How can I do that?

For generating a PDF of a topic and its child topics, see Create PDF and Word exports. Depending on the number of topics included in the export, it might take several minutes to create the PDF. Once the export is complete, you can download the PDF.

 I cannot enable the single sign-on experience using Google Chrome browser version 80 and later.

Recent versions of modern browsers are starting to enforce more privacy-preserving defaults and are changing the way cross-site cookies are handled. 

Remedy Single Sign-On relies on cookies to enable your users to seamlessly access all integrated applications. As browsers implement changes to their default SameSite attributes, cross-site cookies will not be sent by default. As a result, your users will be prevented from accessing your applications.

To continue to use Remedy Single Sign-On with newer browser versions, you must do the following:

  • Use the secure HTTP (https) protocol for all of your applications.
  • Upgrade to Remedy Single Sign-On 20.02.
  • Set the following configuration options in Remedy Single Sign-On:
    • Enable Secure Cookie
    • Use Cross Site Cookie

For instructions, see Configuring settings for Remedy SSO server .

Note: If you subscribe to BMC Helix (SaaS), no action is required. BMC will update your configuration.

Creating PDF and Word exports

You can create a PDF of a page or a set of pages. (Non-English page exports are not supported.) You can also create a Word document of the current page.

To export to PDF or Word

  1. From the Tools menu in the upper-right, select a format:
    • Export to Word to export the current page to Word format
    • Export to PDF to export the current page or a set of pages to PDF
  2. If exporting to PDF, select what you want to export:
    • Only this page to export the current page
    • This page and its children to export a set of pages
    For example, selecting This page and its children from the home page exports the entire space to PDF.
