What's New

Review the latest additions to the docs in the What's New listing.

The BASIS help system has been upgraded!

See Guide to Using BASIS Help for an overview of the online documentation.

Navigate the Table of Contents on the left, and use the search bar at the top right to search all BASIS resources, including Advantage Articles, Knowledge Base articles, Addon and Barista help, and the BASIS website.

The documentation Index is available as a standalone page. Use standard browser "find" functions to locate items in the index (Ctrl+F on Windows, Cmd+F on macOS).

Licensing Information

BBj and BBx 22.00 and higher use the BASIS License Service (BLS).

Earlier versions of BBj, PRO/5, Visual PRO/5, and PRO/5 Data Server ® use FlexNet/FLEXlm licensing software from Flexera Software (, formerly Acresso. The BASIS website contains fully searchable Adobe Acrobat  versions of current and earlier versions of the FLEX manuals.


Topics are categorized in the table of contents by BASIS technology component as follows:

For those preferring the previous structure, BBj topics also appear in the familiar BBj-specific Documentation book. For the original documentation for the BBx family of products, PRO/5 and Visual PRO/5, go to the book titled PRO/5 and Visual PRO/5 Manual Set.


BASIS generates this Help system dynamically. Therefore, bookmarks created for previous versions are likely to fail because the HTML filenames for individual topics may differ.
