Applying the BMC Knowledge Management post-DDM packages
When the source version of BMC Knowledge Management is 8.0 (or earlier) and the target version is 8.1 or later, fields in these RKM forms are updated through workflow triggered by a staging form during the post-upgrade portion of the installer. To update the fields for the delta data, see To apply the BMC Knowledge Management post-DDM packages.
The following data transformation changes are the results of updated functionality. These changes are already been done while upgrading BMC Knowledge Management from version 8.0 (or earlier) to 8.1. To update the fields for the delta data, apply the package in your destination server.
