Starting with version 12.8, BCM allows to perform some operations on the client from the web browser, without having to run or install anything.
With BCM 12.9 more options became available: https://docs.bmc.com/docs/bcm129/launching-the-web-console-for-device-access-878335955.html
At the moment, FootPrints allows to launch the Java console as only option to perform operations on the selected client.
As a workaround I actually configure a custom html field to launch the WebConsole, but without a direct link to the selected client.
It would be nice if the FootPrints-BCM integration could be configured to use the Webconsole, when available.
This would provide a smoother user experience.
