In Software Management version 8.1 RU5 new option: "Continue job if component is not applicable" doesn't work if Abort is selected under the Actions after termination or failure options in Advanced options.
This user interface option was inadvertently added in 8.1 RU5, however the code behind it will not be available until the 8.5 release.
Software Management 8.1 RU5
As this option is non-functional, if you need a policy to run other software tasks choose Continue as the Actions after termination or failure: Action option. This will not allow a non-detected applicablility rule to stop the entire policy.
