CSCvf87844 automated script needed after ISE 2.2 Patch 4 and ISE 2.3 Patch?

The workaround comments for bug ID CSCvf87844 state "But if the affected endpoints are more, then there are steps available to get all the endpoints data from oracle to VCS. Will update those data and eng-notes. We are also planning to come up with automated script that can be given to customer."

Will this script still be necessary after installing the new patch 4?

It's addressed by providing the CLI options.

The patches add more options to ISE admin CLI "application configure ise". For example, ISE 2.3 Patch 1 shows,

my-i230-a/admin# application configure ise

Selection configuration option

Interesting.  Where can we learn more about what these two options do?  When do I need to use this?

[20] Reset Context Visibility 

[21] Synchronize Context Visibility With Database 

We would use them when suspecting ISE context visibility not displaying all endpoints.

Below are my test run in my lab with 3 endpoints. After option 20, all endpoints are gone. After option 21, the endpoints are back.
