Replacement of remaining Adobe Flash capabilities in Remedy
Adobe has announced the end of development and distribution of Flash Player by the end of the year 2020. For more information, see https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/. BMC has taken proactive steps to manage the sunset of Adobe Flash Player. To use Remedy without Adobe Flash Player, BMC recommends that you use the alternatives provided in the following table:
|Component||Alternative currently available||Reference|
Starting with version 9.1.04 of Remedy, BMC has introduced a new CMDB user interface to replace the Flash-based Atrium user interface. BMC recommends that CMDB administrators and configuration managers use the new CMDB user interface as it already includes CMDB Explorer, searching CIs, normalization, reconciliation, Configuration Manager Dashboard, and CMDB archiving. BMC intends to completely replace the Flash-based Atrium Explorer in upcoming releases.
Starting with version 19.02 of Remedy, HTML rendering is enabled by default for new flashboards. HTML rendering offers more secure flashboards display with an improved look and feel. If you choose to use HTML rendering, all your customized flashboards continue to work as before.
|Approval Central||When you click the Approval Details icon on the Approval Central form, you can view the approval process either as a sequence diagram or a table. BMC recommends that you view the approval process by using the Table option.|
|ITSM Suite applications|
BMC recommends using Remedy with Smart IT for a user-friendly interface designed for Service Desk or Support staff to facilitate faster logging and resolution of tickets.

|BMC Change Management|
Starting with release 19.08, Atrium Impact Simulator uses HTML as a default option to render impact simulation.
|BMC Service Request Management|
BMC recommends that you use Digital Workplace Advanced for service request management functions.
When you click the Process View tab, you can view the process steps and fulfillment applications of the service request. BMC recommends that you hide the Process View tab because the Process View uses Adobe Flash.
You can view the request details on the Details tab, as shown in the following figure.

|If you want to create or modify a Service Request Definition (SRD) using Flash in Process View of the Service Catalog Manager Console, you can do this in the Development environment, where Flash is installed. By using BMC Remedy Deployment Application or the Import Export Console, you can then import the modified SRD into the Production environment.|
