The Java Advanced Management Console (AMC) offers system administrators greater and easier control in managing Java version compatibility and security updates for desktops within their enterprise and for ISVs with Java-based applications and solutions.
AMC is available from My Oracle Support (MOS) and Java Advanced Management Console Downloads page. For an overview of the Advanced Management Console, see the Advanced Management Console product page.
See the What's New In Advanced Management Console page for descriptions of the additions to the Advanced Management Console features in all releases, so far.
The following points provide additional information about this release:
When upgrading the Advanced Management Console to version 2.17 or later, and if the Agent Auto Update option is enabled, you must manually replace the signing certificate in the agent machine. For detailed steps, see Automatic Update of Advanced Management Console Agent.

AMC requires that you keep your instance of WebLogic Server up-to-date with security patches. We also recommend that you subscribe to receive notifications of Oracle’s Critical Patch Update Advisories and Security Alerts. Refer to https://www.oracle.com/security-alerts/securityemail.html for instructions.

End of Support for Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.x
Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.x Extended Support ended in Dec 2019 . Therefore, AMC updates released after Dec 2019 require Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.x. AMC users running on WebLogic Server 12.1.x should upgrade to 12.2.x as soon as possible.
No Support for macOS Catalina
Advanced Management Console Agent is not supported on macOS Catalina due to notarization requirement.
End of Support for Windows 7
Microsoft will not support Windows 7 post January 14, 2020. Consequently, Windows 7 will not be a supported platform for future releases of AMC.
Password Reset Support
The password reset functionality added in AMC 2.17 does not support LDAP accounts.
