This documentation supports the 9.1 version of Service Desk.

To view the latest version, select the version from the Product version menu.

BMC Service Desk uses automated, ITIL-compliant incident management and problem management processes to help IT organizations respond quickly and efficiently to conditions that disrupt critical services. The incident management process focuses on getting users up and running after disruptions. The problem management process focuses on determining the root cause of a problem, and on using the change management process to correct the root cause. BMC Service Desk provides a single point of contact for user requests, user submitted incidents, and infrastructure-generated incidents.

 Is all the content for this version of BMC Service Desk in this space?

The documentation for this version of BMC Service Desk is split between multiple spaces, so a space-level search performed in the box in the left navigation pane does not search all the documentation for this release. The following spaces document this release:

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

The BMC Documentation portal gives you the ability to generate PDF and Microsoft Word documents of single pages, and to create PDF exports of multiple pages in a space.  

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 template you want to use:
    • Simple to export a lightweight PDF with no cover, table of contents, or index.
      By default, the Simple template only exports the current page.
    • Standard to export a traditional PDF with a cover, table of contents, and index.
      By default, the Standard template exports the current page and all child pages.


 

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.
