Product updates

The following product updates are provided in BMC Remedyforce

Remedyforce discovery enhancements

The following enhancements have been made to Remedyforce discovery:

  • If the BMC Remedyforce - BCM Processor (<submitted date time>) scheduled job is not running, one of the running scheduled jobs, BMC Remedyforce - Milestone Processor (<date time>) or Remedyforce Utility Service (<date time>), now keeps the Discovery Server alive. For more information, see Enabling and configuring agentless discovery.

  • The Discovery Server status logs have been enhanced. These logs now enable you identify issues related enabling and disabling of discovery, provisioning of the Discovery Server, and success and failure status of sending the KeepAlive request. While monitoring these logs, if you frequently see logs related to disabling of discovery, decommissioning of the Discovery Server, or failure of sending the KeepAlive request (for example, you continuously see the Last_Discovery_KeepAlive_Failure_Exception log once in every 10 days), it is likely that your Discovery Server has been impacted, or might have been accidentally deleted. To resolve the issue, contact BMC Support and provide the log details. For more information, see Verifying Discovery Server status.

Self Service on Salesforce1 Mobile App enhancements

In the Self Service on Salesforce1 Mobile App, system administrators can now hide the Submit Ticket link, which is displayed on the Superbox, and the Submit a Ticket button, which is displayed on the Self Help Articles and the Common Tickets pages.

For more information, see  Configuring settings for Self Service on Salesforce1 Mobile App and Configuring settings for incidents raised by clients.
