The Admin Console is the next-generation web interface for the Edge SWG (ProxySG) appliance. Designed to help you manage and monitor the appliance more efficiently, the Admin Console is the successor to the legacy Java-based Management Console. Whether you are running SGOS 6.7.x or 7.x, you can avoid exposing systems to unsupported Java versions or critical vulnerabilities by switching to the Edge SWG (ProxySG) Admin Console (SGAC).
In SGOS 126.96.36.199, the appliance's default web management interface is the Admin Console (the Java-based Management Console will still be available). In 7.4.x, the Management Console will not be supported. Manage the Edge SWG appliance using the Admin Console (and CLI, as needed). Broadcom will provide an End-of-Life (EOL) notification for the Management Console soon. Check the Broadcom Support portal for newly-published articles and announcements.

To understand the benefits of switching to the Admin Console, refer to the following feature comparison.
|Admin Console||Management Console|
|Run the console natively in a web browser with no need for additional downloads or configuration.||You are required to download a JNLP file or create a Java application to launch the console.|
|Experience the latest web-based UX technology with a modern look and feel.||The Management Console is Java-based and Broadcom has ceased updating it.|
|You can configure some newer features in the Admin Console, such as an external Web Isolation service (7.3.1+) and a UDP tunnel proxy (SGOS 7.3.4+).||The Management Console does not include these newer features. If you do not use the Admin Console to configure the features, you must use the CLI.|
|(In versions earlier than SGOS/ASG 188.8.131.52) Deploy multiple versions of the Admin Console using Management Center's packaging feature. See About Management Center Packages for more information.
||Each ProxySG release includes only one version of the Management Console.|
|(Future release) Control access to the Edge SWG using a full role-based security model when using Management Center.||You can control access to the ProxySG appliance using a local realm and an authorization policy. The appliance does not have permissions for specific user functions.|
