SAP BusinessObjects BI platform support tool 2.1 Patch 8


Release Date: November 15 2019

Fixed Issues

JIRA ID# not found error when running Connections AnalyzerAdded missing dependency which is required for newer versions of BI Platform.2.1.7 
Enterprise Alias Manager does not set password for alias correctly.

Workaround: Use a local administrator account instead of domain account with local admin access on the BIPST client. Or, use the domain\user of the account that is currently logged on to Windows (assuming this user has local admin rights on the BIPST client)
