We have troubles with USM as a Flash APP. from time to time browsers will hang themselves. I would suggest USM to be ported to HTML 5.

are there timelines on this one?

We recognize the concern and feedback from our customers regarding the use of Flash inside of Unified Infrastructure Manager and USM in particular. It is one of our highest priorities to address and please be assured that we are actively working on multiple initiatives to phase out Flash across the product.


The first initiative was around our Admin Console 2.0, a full HTML 5 version of the original web based admin console that was made generally available with UIM 8.4.7. We have also incorporated another fully HTML 5-based component into UIM with the addition of CA Business Intelligence data visualization (CABI dashboards), also made available in UIM 8.4.7. 


Finally, we are working on a SaaS based version of our UIM solution that will initially be focused on cloud technologies.  This SaaS solution is planned to include new HTML5 interfaces for MCS, the Monitoring Configuration Service functionality that was released in 8.4, as well as new topology/inventory/reporting capabilities which will all be HTML 5 based.  This is also the release window in which the primary user alternative to planned.


Our intent then is to leverage these new User Interfaces in the on-prem UIM product and expect to phase these in over the next few major releases.  We believe these steps will provide the functionality that is important to our customers while fully eliminating Flash in UIM.

Amazing how CA UIM communities works... It seems they do not care about the idea at all. This idea have been published since Dec 2015 and yet the status still new .....

For example:


delete from MAINTENANCE_WINDOW where END_TIME <= '2016-08-01 00:00:00.001'



START_TIME <= '2016-08-01 00:00:00.001'


I suppose if RECURRENCE_PATTERN = 0 , then those are not "Active".

If we do that, what happen with the maintenances already in progress?


Can you share with us the query that you have used?


Thanks a lot !!!!

As FYI, cleaning up maintenance_window and maintenance_schedule Tables, gave USM a new life !

No more Flash Not Responding errors.

Just makes one wonder why USM/Flash reads all those records at startup ...

Strongly agree. The same for me.

Agreed that this needs to be rewritten in html5.


Another component needing it >> the SLM portlet. Please also vote this one up for that: Rewrite the SLM portlet in HTML5

The Shockwave Flash Unresponsiveness in UMP is the most what I hear from the user field ...     :-(

this might be a good one to raise during UIM webcast next week

GUI is not usable when displaying core routers/switches with a large number of interfaces, sub interfaces, loopbacks and vlans.

Flash does not respond.

Unfortunately USM is not HTML5 in UMP 8.4

Fingers crossed for the next release.

Heard few times that USM is due to head HTML5 just not seen any timeline. Currently have support case open on the continuous flash player hang and eventual crash. Hopeful 8.4 has something but as release notes are not published cannot determine what is coming up.
