Pinned topic Announcement: Updated IBM FileNet P8 5.1 Information Center

‏2011-11-16T19:41:56Z |
We've recently updated the IBM FileNet P8 V5.1 information center (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/p8docs/v5r1m0/index.jsp). For most of the changed topics, the updates include:

o Fixes that correct known issues and other errors.
o Changes to the product name for IBM InfoSphere Enterprise Records, which is now named IBM Enterprise Records.
o Deprecation notices for IBM FileNet Legacy Content Search Engine.

In addition, the updates include:

o Content Engine administration – added a new topic, "Conversion of mapped property values," which defines the data type conversion rules for IBM FileNet CFS for Content Integrator; updated the description of the license terms for use of IBM Content Engine Bulk Import Tool.
o IBM Content Search Services troubleshooting – added a new topic, "Checking IBM Content Search Services for common errors."
o IBM ECM Widgets installation – added a new planning topic.
o Performance tuning – added IBM Content Manager tuning topics.
o Process Engine Web Service documentation - added new methods from fixpack 5.0.0.1-P8PE-FP001 and supporting updates.
o IBM Forms – added documentation for IBM Forms, which is now bundled with IBM FileNet Business Process Manager with limited use license terms.

If you want to apply these updates to a locally installed IBM FileNet P8 V5.1 information center, see the download document (https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24030625) available from the IBM Support Portal.

Note that IBM FileNet Business Process Manager Version 5.1 was released on October 21, 2011. This release delivers a new bundled offering as well as improved support for IBM Case Manager. However, there are no documentation changes for the release, and the Process Engine, Case Analyzer, and Process Simulator software version remains at 5.0.

    Where can we see the terms of the IBM Forms limited use license?

    Hello,

    Here's a link to the FN BPM 5.1 license information document:

    http://www-03.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf/lilookup/210B470E5F3BF81A8525792F007C900B?opendocument&li_select=D11A7098C173E1B08525792F007C8FFC

    I've snipped what I believe are the interesting bits from the above-mentioned document:

    Supporting Programs

    The Program is licensed as a multi-product package and includes the Supporting Programs identified below. Licensee is authorized to install and use such Supporting Programs only to support Licensee's use of the Principal Program under this Agreement and within the limits of the Proofs of Entitlement for the Program (unless broader rights are provided elsewhere in this License Information document). The phrase "to support Licensee's use" would include only those uses that are necessary or otherwise directly related to a licensed use of the Principal Program or another Supporting Program. The Supporting Programs may not be used for any other purpose. Licensee is not authorized to transfer or remarket the Supporting Programs separate from the Principal Program. The terms of this Agreement may replace or modify the license terms for the Supporting Programs. In the event of conflict, these terms supersede the terms of the license agreement which accompanies the Supporting Programs. When Licensee's right to use the Program expires or terminates, Licensee must discontinue use, destroy or promptly return all copies of the Supporting Programs to the party from whom Licensee acquired the Program. If Licensee downloaded the Supporting Programs, Licensee should contact the party from whom Licensee acquired the Program. If Licensee wishes to license the Supporting Programs for any use beyond the limits set forth above, please contact an IBM Sales Representative or the party from whom Licensee acquired the Program to obtain the appropriate license.

    The following are Supporting Programs licensed with the Program:

    IBM Forms Server V4.0
    IBM Forms Designer V4.0
    IBM Forms Viewer V4.0

    IBM Forms Server

    Use Limitations: Non-Production

    IBM Forms Designer

    Use Limitations: Non-Production

    IBM Forms Viewer

    Use Limitations: Non-Production

    "Non-Production" means that the Supporting Program can only be deployed as part of Licensee's internal development and test environment for internal non-production activities, including but not limited to testing, performance tuning, fault diagnosis, internal benchmarking, staging, quality assurance activity and/or developing internally used additions or extensions to the Program using published application programming interfaces. Licensee is not authorized to use any part of the Supporting Program for any other purposes without acquiring the appropriate production entitlements.
