4.2 SP4 Patch Combined Installer?

Hello,

One of the features that looked like it was introduced in SP4 was the ability to combine service pack and patch installers to do 1 install instead of multiple installs. According to the what's new PDF posted here: https://www.sap.com/documents/2017/04/5e2249b3-b57c-0010-82c7-eda71af511fa.html

I also saw a paragraph reference to this for add-ons here:

https://blogs.sap.com/2017/05/12/a-simple-guide-to-updating-upgrading-your-sap-businessobjects-bi-platform-the-rules/

"The Add-on Support Pack and Patch software are bundled into the same installer package. This means you can update directly to the required Support Pack and Patch level in one go, without the need to apply the Support Pack first, then the Patch."

Is there any place this is documented on how to combine a patch into the support pack installer? I figure it is probably some switch for setup to integrate the patch, but not sure. I tried looking at the BI Platform site to see if it is there:

https://help.sap.com/viewer/product/SAP_BUSINESSOBJECTS_BUSINESS_INTELLIGENCE_PLATFORM/4.2/en-US

But I also noticed that the 4.2 SP4 Admin Guide and the SP4 install guide for Windows are both missing from there as well.

Thanks in advance.

    If you want a combined patch - you'll need to open support incident and request it.
    as of now, there are no instructions on how to do this on our own.
