License Key Checks Removed

The requirement for a License Key based on customer contracted entitlement was removed from the products in V12.2.2. 

This was for a number of reasons:

  • Multiple Customer requests
  • Customer survey feedback
  • Removal of a License Generation process which does not add any meaningful value for the customer or Broadcom
  • Removal of any risk of a customer outage due to a missing/expired license key 

 

Telemetry

Telemetry functionality was added into the solution in V12.2.2

This enables information about usage to be sent to the Broadcom organisation if the customer agrees.

On first login to Client 0, you will be asked to Activate your product. Telemetry can be found in the documentation here Telemetry

The Site ID requested is available in any support ticket communication.

 

No Personal information is collected that could identify components (Servers, Network addresses etc). 

The information is restricted to the following for AWA 

  • Number of Automation Engine / HA instances
  • Number of Active nodes (Technology nodes, Application nodes and Midrange nodes)
  • Number of job executions

 

The information is restricted to the following for CDA / ARA

  • Number of Automation Engine / HA instances
  • Number of Deployment Targets

 

The Information is restricted to the following for ASO

  • Number of Automation Engine / HA instances

Idea Comment Migration

Posted by SamCreek Employee May 16, 2018

Hi Automic community members,

 

A quick introduction, I'm SamCreek, responsible for the communities platform and strategy here at CA.  I've been working with Luu and Octavie through the migration and you may have seen me pop up in a thread or two.

 

Tomorrow night at 9:30 PM PST/12:30 AM EST/4:30 AM GMT we will be loading the comments to the ideas and we will be attributing them to the original author.  The community will be available during this time but the author's of the comments will be disabled briefly while we do the migration and then re-enabled.  We expect the migration to take about an hour in total.

 

The migration will show up as new activity, so please be prepared.  The comments themselves have been transformed for the new system and in that process some links have been removed.  If you find any issues with the comments please let LuuLe, Octavie or myself know and we will correct them.  If you would like to edit a comment that you authored, please feel free to do so after the migration. 

As of May 11, 2018 Request Management has been released and is available for download.

 

Request Management 3.3.2 - Files are available for download here.

Request Management 3.2.5 - Files are available for download here.

You've recently joined the CA Communities platform and one of the first things you need to do is to find and  follow your product Communities.

Following your product Community will help you receive notifications, updates  regarding that Community. More important, following and posting in the right Community will help you get answers faster from your peers.

Joining and following your Community can be done in 2 different ways:

 

Option 1: Joining a Community from the Communities directory

Once you are logged in to communities.ca.com

 

Click on "Communities" from the top banner

 

From there, you will be taken to a directory of all of the available CA Communities. Here, you can use the "type to filter by text" bar to search for specific Communities; for instance, "CA Automic Community"

 

Click on the gear symbol next to your Product Community

From there, a pop-up will appear prompting you about how you would like to follow the Community with the "Following" box checked.

 

Option 2: Joining a Community via a direct link

In this example, I visit the CA Automic Community 

Make sure you are signed in to communities.ca.com

Click "Follow"

From there, a pop-up will appear prompting you about how you would like to follow the Community

 

 

You can follow a Community via:

  • the following stream: this box is checked by default . The "Following Stream" updates do not send emails or notifications unless  you've selected the email option  in your Preferences.
  • the custom stream: in this example, "My people Stream" has been created to get updates on people I'm following. If this option is checked the updates will be populated in my Stream.Take a look to the "Custom Streams" document to see how you can create your own stream.
  • the inbox: this will notify you directly of any activity taking place with your Community. Those notifications will be sent directly to your inbox. .

For more information on the different types of following and preferences, please read the Following document.

 

Of course you can stop following a community at anytime by clicking on "Stop Following"

 

Now , let's make sure you are following the right Community.
