Problem conclusion

  • We made a change to ensure that the isConfigurable flag is
    properly setup when a job has configuration.  This will allow
    custom values to be exported.
    
    Customers should download OpenPages with Watson 8.2 Fix Pack 2
    (8.2.0.2). See the following document for details on obtaining
    OpenPages 8.2.0.2:
