Issue/Introduction

Description:

Solution:

Identity Manager's 12.6 databases is backward compatible with a 12.5 database. This includes the object store, task persistence, auditing, workflow and archive databases. When upgrading from 12.5 to 12.6 you are not required to upgrade or update your database. Due to its backward compatibility you will should be able to use your existing database. Upon first execution of Identity Manager 12.6 it will update and upgrade the schema automatically.
