OMi / OBM version that does no longer need Adobe Flash Player

Status : Delivered
over 2 years ago

Due to security policies, we are no longer allowed to use Flash Player and corresponding browser plugins starting May 2019.

Therefore we need an OMi / OBM version that does no longer need Flash Player as client-side prerequisite before this deadline (May 2019).

  • OBm 2020.05 remove flash except for some administrative task as manage nodes, you need to proceed with 2020.11 which besides is a totally different way to handle policies templates and so on, but the worst part is that we couldn't migrate to 2020.11 because LDAP integration failed…..a defeat, and still waiting for HF.

    Every migration sorry is a nughtmare

  • - Thanks for update. will this release support MS Edge too?

    Please note that from 2020.05 to 2020.10, release will be an update and if you are using distributed OBM deployment, we will support almost zero downtime update procedure.

    >>>> two single server installtion with LB is considered as distributed OBM deployment in this case?

  • Hi ,

    Yes, so far we are on track for end of October/early Nov release of flash free OBM 2020.10.

    , if someone told you 2020.07 as flash-free solution, thats wrong information.

    Please note that from 2020.05 to 2020.10, release will be an update and if you are using distributed OBM deployment, we will support almost zero downtime update procedure.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Mamta

  • I spoke with some people at Microfocus and they suggest 2020.07 as flash-free solution. I already installed 2020.05 on a test environment and it shows promise, hopefully there is no much difference between the two.

    Waiting for 2020.11 is not acceptable at all; it is right on top of browser updates everywhere that drop flash completely.
