9.0.19 is out in the next week.
Automation API has greater capabilities in 9.0.18
Full support for 9.0.00 ended last year and there is only 18months more of limited support.
I recommend skipping v9 and going to v9.0.19. It will save testing time/effort since you only have to deal with one upgrade instead of two.
We went from v8 to v126.96.36.199, skipping v9. Some of our v8 system settings didn't translate in the upgrade but BMC Support helped us find/fix those bugs.
