Supported browsers

This section lists the supported browsers and their versions for BMC Discovery.

Validated browsers

The following recommended browsers have been thoroughly tested with BMC Discovery. When you use one of these browsers, any application functionality problems are considered bugs.

  • Firefox (latest version)
  • Chrome (latest version)
  • Microsoft Edge (41.16299 to 44.19041 or the latest version on the stable channel)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 (Desktop mode only; Windows UI/Metro mode is not supported; see the following note)


Internet Explorer Compatibility Mode is not supported, as this forces the browser to behave as an older (unsupported) version. This behavior can be controlled with the Internet Explorer settings:

  • Tools > Compatibility View
  • Tools > Compatibility View Settings

On the following additional browsers, no formal testing has been undertaken, although some informal testing has happened and the product might work.

  • Opera (latest version)

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 9

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

Support for Compatibility and Quirks modes for the versions listed is also deprecated in later Internet Explorer browsers.

Remote access

We test the major browsers’ latest versions at release time on the major Windows desktops and on a selection of Linux systems. Occasionally, these browsers do not work as well using remote access, such as RDP, VNC and virtual desktop infrastructure systems. If you encounter such a problem we are happy to try and help but cannot guarantee being able to work around all browser remote access problems.

Known issues

For a list of known issues for browsers that are not listed in the validated browsers section, see Limitations and restrictions of this version.
