This documentation supports the 9.1 version of Service Request Management.

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

The BMC Service Request Management application enables an IT department and other business departments to easily define available services, publish those services in a service catalog, and automate fulfillment of those services for the user community, enabling users to help themselves. BMC Service Request Management runs on the BMC Remedy Action Request System (BMC Remedy AR System) platform and consumes data from the BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database (BMC Atrium CMDB). BMC Service Request Management works with other applications, such as BMC Incident Management and BMC Change Management, to resolve user requests. BMC Service Request Management manages the entire process, from submission to completion.

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 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.
