Post your ideas
  1. Post an idea.

End of Live 2020 for Flashpayer inside IBM Rational Change

We are using IBM Rational Change 5.3.1 and for the Help preparation of the "CR Process-specific Help" the Adobe Flashplayer (Version: 29.0.0.113) is used. The End of Live for this product is announced for 2020 and the browser support from Microsoft and Firefox is already reduced for this product because of different security problems with this older software technic.

So we will need an alternative for this product inside IBM Rational Change.

This problem is locked under TS000951985.
