Are there plans to replace Flash on NFA with HTML5?
Flash has been an integral component of using NFA Omar, so I think it's unlikely.
However, lets wait and see if we can get a response from CA Product management or perhaps a CA architect who may have been asked this before by another customer and who may know if there are any plans in the future.
Well, given that FLASH is EOL, they don’t have a choice.
Yes, it should be replaced. Some browsers disallow flash already (For a good reason)
Adobe announced Flash to be totally out of support for 2020. Microsoft already announced that they will drop total support of Flash in IE and Edge at the same time. And for Chrome And Mozilla they are already working to drop flash very soon (with no comeback possible for the user).
Replacing Flash has been on our "roadmap" for future NFA versions for some time. We don't have a specific ETA on this.
Given the timelines from Google, and Microsoft, it would be nice to see some sort of official statement and/or game plan from CA on this potential issue.
There is a plan to use Light Weight Dashboards (LWDB) to see NFA metrics, this is done as part of Operational Intelligence platform where NFA data would be fed to Elastic and consumed via Kibana/LWDB.
This will also replace Flash dependency in NFA UI.
Sounds really interesting but how far is this away?
This means there will be a major redesign of the nfa in the near future?
Do you have any timeframe to share with us? I'm very interested!!!
