FeatureAnnouncements and recommendations
Support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11

Starting with the 21.02 release (targeted for February 2021), BMC will not support the use of Microsoft Internet Explorer version 11 with BMC Discovery. For a complete list of BMC products that will no longer support Internet Explorer 11, see the BMC Customer Support Communities page Open link .

As technology continues to advance, it has become more challenging to resolve browser-specific issues related to Internet Explorer 11. We may attempt to fix some issues related to that version, but some features may not work as expected.

Because of security compromises and performance issues, we recommend that you do not use Internet Explorer 11. Instead, we encourage you to switch to other fully supported browsers.

BMC will still support Internet Explorer 11 on releases of BMC products prior to version 21.02 where Internet Explorer 11 was already supported.


Microsoft still supports Internet Explorer 11 on some operating systems (including Microsoft Windows 8.1 and 10 and Windows Server 2012 and 2016). For more information, see the Microsoft  Lifecycle FAQ - Internet Explorer and Edge Open link  page.

If you have any questions, you can post them on the  BMC Customer Support Communities page Open link .

Export framework

The BMC Discovery export framework is deprecated, and the feature will be discontinued in a future release. For new exports or integrations, you must use the REST API.
