    In an announcement it is communicated that there is a replacement of Adobe Flash capabilities in ITSM Remedy.

    Adobe announced the end of development and distribution of Adobe Flash Player by the end of the year 2020 , BMC  plan to deprecate the following remaining capabilities where Flash is still used in the Remedy Suite:   
    • Service Request Management (SRM) Process Designer and Visualizer
    • Approval Process Visualizer
    • Atrium Explorer integrations in Remedy Mid Tier (IT Service Management UI)
    • Various CMDB UI capabilities, such as Dynamic Service Modeling, CMDB Audit, and Federated Class Management

    To view the impact results of an unavailable CI, you can run a impact simulation in the BMC CMDB Explorer.

    Steps to view the Impact Simulator.
    1. On the BMC CMDB Dashboard, Click on CI, search for a CI for which you want to perform a quick impact simulation.
    3. Select the CI and open it in CMDB Explorer.
    5. On the CMDB Explorer, right-click the CI and select Simulate Impact.
    7. The Explorer will display the impact of service model if the CI is unavailable.
