Focal Point Banner

As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

[SHARING] 8204 info

Hey guys,

I hit just a couple of small things worth noting while pulling down the 8204 release.

First the PDF's can be found here:

Second, the WF Reporting Server is still called 8203m gen 1337 so don't be surprised if you don't see an 8204 to download.

The WFRS is certified as OK to use with the 8204 client as seen in 8204 Release Guide on page 19

I did an upgrade from 8203 to 8204 for the client and 8203 to 8203m for the WFRS and it all went off suspiciously easy.

Double checking some things now.

I've already alerted the tech content team to update the 8203 references from our starting pages to show 8204 instead so that's just a matter of time.

Happy upgrading.
Toby Mills, CISSP

Just a quick update, my browser cache was the culprit about still showing 8203 content by default..

Clearing the cache directs me to the 8204 content as we would expect.

Who knew - darn cache!
