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:
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.
Java Plug-in support has been removed from Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers in Windows and macOS platforms.

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.
Advanced Management Console Agent is not supported on macOS Catalina due to notarization requirement.
Microsoft will not support Windows 7 post January 14, 2020. Consequently, Windows 7 will not be a supported platform for future releases of AMC.
The password reset functionality added in AMC 2.17 does not support LDAP accounts.
