Clarity PPM On Premise Clarity PPM SaaS

Issue/Introduction

The IT team found a large number of files with the SWF extension in the Clarity PPM servers. It is related to Adobe Flash, and it is in the process of being disabled from all of our servers soon.

I would like to have information about:

(1) In what context are SWF files created?
(2) How critical is Clarity PPM's use of Adobe Flash?
(3) What is Broadcom's plan for possible removal of Adobe Flash?

Environment

Release : 15.8

Component : CA PPM APPLICATION

Resolution

You can be sure Clarity PPM does not have any SWF extensions. I would say it is related to another component in your server. It is not out of the box for sure.
