Introduction

IBM has released the ICD 7.6.0.3 FixPack:

Installation issues

On linux, the service_portal.bin installer crashes unless you use the “-i silent” install option. See this link for more information:

New/Updated Functionality

Here are IBM’s links for the new capabilities:
I’ve found a couple of additional things that have been fixed that I didn’t find in the documentation. Specifically:

Service Portal

– Default values for specifications now completely work. This means that you can specify a default value for a specification for an offering, and you will see that default value filled in when you go to request that offering.
– Specifications tied to Table Domains now work again. This function existed in 7.6.0.1, but was broken in 7.6.0.2, and is now back. Specifically, if you define a specification to be tied to a table domain, when you click in the field for that specification in the offering, you’ll get a popup with all of the possible values. 
– Users can add an attachment before hitting the Submit button. One thing this allows you to do is require an attachment through the use of an “Add to Cart” or “On Submit” validation script.
