    QUESTION:

    Adobe Flash is a requirement for TrueSight Orchestration (TSO) / BMC Atrium Orchestrator (BAO). TSO uses it for the web interfaces including Grid Manager, Repository Manager, and Operator Control Panel. If a browser does not allow Flash, how does this affect TSO?


    ANSWER:

    Grid Manager only uses Flash to view metrics on the page Status -> Go to Metrics View. All other pages work correctly without Flash.

    You cannot access Repository Manager or the Operator Control Panel on a browser without Flash using any version of BAO/TSO prior to TSO 8.2. TSO 8.2 introduces a new interface for the Repository Manager that does not use Flash, and TSO 20.02 does the same for the Operator Control Panel. If you must access TSO using a browser without Flash, upgrade to a more recent version of TSO.
