Note

While every effort is made to provide accurate, forward-looking guidance on product direction to assist you with your buying and planning decisions, BMC cannot guarantee that intentions stated as follows are final and binding. 

Statement of direction: End of support for Self Service standalone mobile applications

BMC Remedyforce Self Service Mobile is now a part of Salesforce1 starting with the BMC Remedyforce Summer 16 release! Take advantage of all the features you have today in Self Service through the Salesforce1 application.

As of the BMC Remedyforce Summer 16 release, BMC will no longer support the BMC Remedyforce Self Service standalone applications for individual devices. These applications have now been removed from their respective locations (iTunes, Google Play, and BMC FTP). Additionally, BMC will no longer fix defects found in the Self Service standalone applications. You are encouraged to utilize BMC Remedyforce Self Service through Salesforce1, which simplifies authentication and allows your users to access all their Salesforce applications from a single mobile application.

Statement of direction: End of support for Self Service 1.0

From the BMC Remedyforce Summer 16 release, BMC will no longer support Self Service 1.0.

All new features for Self Service are targeted toward Self Service 2.0. Additionally, BMC will no longer fix defects found in Self Service 1.0. To determine which version of Self Service you are using, see the following Self Service 1.0 figure:

All new features for CMDB (including the new Asset Management features) are targeted toward CMDB 2.0. Additionally, BMC will no longer fix defects found in CMDB 1.0. To determine which version of CMDB you are using, go to the Remedyforce Administration tab and select Application Settings. If the menu contains the CMDB 2.0 Upgrade option, you are using CMDB 1.0. If you have upgraded to CMDB 2.0, this menu option is not listed. For information about the upgrade from CMDB 1.0 to 2.0, see Upgrading to CMDB 2.0.

Statement of direction: End of support for the old Visualforce UI

As of December 31, 2014, BMC will no longer fix defects in the interface that was used before the adoption of the Salesforce platform environment and the Remedyforce Console.

When BMC Remedyforce was first released, the interface was built to use pure Visualforce code. This interface was sometimes referred to as "old Visualforce" or "the blue pages." For the last year, BMC has not supported adding new functionality to the original user interface. However, BMC continued to fix any defects found in that interface. For uninterrupted access to BMC Remedyforce, ensure that you move your staff to the new Remedyforce Console by December 31, 2014. If you have any questions, contact BMC Support or your Customer Success Manager.
