    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
