Appendix A: The SEM legacy Flash components
The SolarWinds Security Event Manager (originally called the Log Event Manager) was initially build with a Flash-enabled interface. However in 2017, Adobe announced that it would stop production and support of the Adobe Flash Player and the entire Flash multimedia platform by December 31, 2020. Since then, the SEM product has been gradually transferred to HTML5. For more information about Flash, visit the Adobe Flash Player EOL General Information Page (Copyright © 2020 Adobe, retrieved November 5, 2020) for information.
With this release, we have tried to separate procedures involving the legacy Flash console from those for the SEM Console, and have moved these to this Appendix. Some topics that contain procedures for both versions remain in the body of document.
