Announcing Adobe Flash End-of-Life and its impact on TrueSight Operations Management

TrueSight Operations Management 11.3.x uses Adobe Flash in the legacy TrueSight Infrastructure Management operator console. Adobe has announced the end-of-life for Flash, after which Adobe Systems will officially stop updating and distributing Adobe Flash.

The major browsers, including Google ChromeMozilla Firefox, and Microsoft's Internet Explorer, will no longer support Adobe Flash at the end of 2020. Until its removal, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have, by default, disabled Adobe Flash and require explicit permissions from the user to activate it on a website. However, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge continue to support Adobe Flash until its removal.

BMC's earlier announcement about this can be accessed here.

Dropped support for TrueSight Infrastructure Management consoles

  • The TrueSight Infrastructure Management operator console is dropped in 11.3.04. Therefore, you can no longer cross-launch to the Infrastructure Management operator console from the TrueSight console. The TrueSight console, a component of TrueSight Presentation Server, is the replacement for the operator console. This approach has the following advantages:
    • You no longer need to enable Flash Plugin in your browsers.
    • You can manage your workflows and monitor your infrastructure resources from a single console.
    For more information about the equivalent workflows, see Operator console workflows available in the TrueSight console.

  • The TrueSight Infrastructure Management SLO console is dropped in 11.3.04.

    I see that BMC dropped the reporting feature in the TSIM ops console which is a very important feature. Not sure why BMC is not updating this info in the documentation of TSIM 11.3.04

      Hello Venkata ramesh Ijjigani,

      The issue has been escalated to all the people concerned. It is a WIP. A lot of discussions are happening around that subject for the last few days, as it involves having additional tools etc. I request you to wait for a few more days.

      Thanks for your patience.
