Have you ever gone through a BMC Decision Support for Server Automation upgrade and you wanted to find all the data model changes in one place for each release in your upgrade path to update your custom reports? Well, we have good news for you. Now you can find all the information that you need in one place to ensure your custom reports work with the new version. For example, the consolidated information indicates if a particular query item was deleted in a previous release and whether there is any substitute query item in the current release.
To provide an easy access to the changes across all versions, the BMC Decision Support for Server Automation documentation now provides a consolidated view of changes in the Enhancements topic. Along with the changes in the current version, now you can view changes in the previous versions with a single click. For example, in the Changes in the BMC BladeLogic data model section, along with version 8.7, you can check out the changes in versions 8.6, 8.5 SP1, 8.5, and 8.3.
In addition, the Data Model topic now links to a spreadsheet that contains the complete data model for the current version. The data model spreadsheet describes each and every query item to help you with the usage of the query items. For easier access, the Related topics section on the Data Model topic now also contains links to the changes in that release. For example, 8.7 BMC BladeLogic data model links to a spreadsheet that describes the query items available in version 8.7 and 8.7 Changes in the data model links to the changes in version 8.7.
