    Dhi1ip,

     

    There were multiple versions and service packs and cumulative releases that came out between r12 and the current r12.52 sp01 cr04.

     

    You will need to go to each hot fix or release and see what fixes or functionality were added with each.

    support.ca.com

    CA Single Sign On in the search bar.

    Product Pages

    On the right hand side go to Hotfix ->Cumulative Release and then select Web Access Manager which is the policy server. You can then select which CR or SP you are interested in and get Solution Document RTC information for each fix.

    Also, we have two "differences" courses that showcase the significant new product features 12 to 12.5. One course, the Overview, simply describes the features and is free (course number 04SMR10190). The 200 level course ("CA SiteMinder and CA SiteMinder Federation r12.52: Differences 200" course number 04SMR20290) goes deeper into each feature, describing the steps to actually implement many of the features with recorded demonstrations.
