New features

Component groups can now be added to service models. This enhancement provides ease of use and reduced maintenance requirements. By including component groups in the model, when components are added or removed from the group, the service model is automatically updated.

A component group definition can be used in service models to reference only the subset of device components that impact that service, instead of all components of those devices.

OpenJDK Java 8 is required for Service Impact 5.1.7 regardless of whether you are using Resource Manager 4.2.x or 5.x.
