You can use a single request to change multiple values. For example, to assign a component to a product and then the product to a Cloud Pak. The only exception is when you include the software instance in the pricing calculation or unsuppress its discovery. By design, these actions make the software assignment unconfirmed. Use the same REST API call again to confirm the software assignment.
202017 9.2.34 Software classification REST API api/sam/v2/software_instances clears Cloud Pa or FlexPoint Bundle assignment if current  bundle_name or bundle_guid is not included in REST API call. Cloud Pak or FlexPoint Bundle assignment is preserved even if bundle_name and bundle_guid are not provided. For example, if the software instance is being excluded using REST API call.

201992 9.2.34 GET and PUT methods of software classification REST API api/sam/v2/software_instances differ in the way thediscovery_path is encoded in the JSON string. PUT method of software classification REST API api/sam/v2/software_instances accepts both the previous format as well as the one used by the GET method.
201979 9.2.34 Assigning more than one different component to the same product using software classification REST API api/sam/v2/software_instances results in only one software instance being modified. All software instances are correctly modified.
201973 9.2.34 In case too many disconnected scanner scan result packages are being uploaded at once through the License Metric Tool server using the Scan Results Upload panel, the upload might fail. Scan Results Upload panel allows to upload up to 50 disconnected scanner scan result packages at once.
201952 9.2.34 In case of multiple import failures the number of successfully processed disconnected scanner packages can cause the import to fail when trying to delete them all at once. The successfully processed disconnected scanner packages are deleted in batches during data import.
201913 9.2.34 In case the physical server does not have any computers reporting to License Metric Tool currently, the Processor Brand String column in audit snapshot for that server is empty. The Processor Brand String information is preserved even all the computers running on a physical server are decommissioned.
201877, 201876, 201857, 201857, 201851, 201849 9.2.34 In the multitenancy scenario, users with the access to the specific resource type within their own computer group could craft a malicious HTTP request using specialized tools to manage that resource type of the other computer group.

201584 9.2.32 Components such as WebSphere Application Server are automatically assigned to License Metric Tool. The problem occurred because the partition collocation rule was applied during the automated bundling of the disconnected scanner. It caused that some of the components that were discovered on the same partition as the disconnected scanner were assigned to License Metric Tool instead of their corresponding products.

The partition collocation rule is no longer applied for the disconnected scanner during automated bundling. As a result, the discovered components are no longer automatically assigned to License Metric Tool and the accuracy of automated bundling is improved.

201079 9.2.31 It is not possible to generate the audit snapshot when the License Metric Tool server is installed on a Windows computer that uses the Thai Buddhist Calendar format. The problem does not occur.
