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.

What's New

See the What's New In Advanced Management Console page for descriptions of the additions to the Advanced Management Console features in all releases until now.


Other Notes

The following points provide additional information about this release:

  • Disable SHA-1 Signed JARs

    SHA-1 signed JARs and certificates are disabled by default in JDK releases. Ensure that the JARs and certificates used for Deployment Rule Sets are signed appropriately; else, the ruleset signing or deployment of the ruleset at the agent will fail. See Disable SHA-1 signed jars for more information.

  • Support for Oracle Database 21c

    Advanced Management Console 2.25 and later versions support Oracle Database 21c.

  • AMC Bundle Extensions Truncated When Downloading Using Firefox ESR 102

    On and, certain AMC bundle extensions are getting truncated on download when using Firefox ESR 102. The downloaded bundles have no file extension like .ear, .exe, .rpm, .deb. If you are not able to upgrade to Firefox ESR 102.0.1 or Firefox 103 when it is released, then as a workaround you can:

    • manually add a file extension to the file name after download
    • use a different browser

  • Containerized Advanced Management Console

    Oracle provides an easy-to-deploy containerized version of Advanced Management Console. Containerized AMC uses WebLogic Kubernetes Operator (WKO) for deploying and managing AMC. This solution can be easily deployed in cloud or non-cloud environments and leverages scaling functionality of the operator within a Kubernetes framework. This will address the complexity involved in installing and maintaining the non-containerized AMC without the intervention of IT or any specialized technical skills. For more details, see Containerized AMC Deployment Guide.

  • Support for Oracle WebLogic 14c

    Advanced Management Console version 2.20 onwards supports Oracle WebLogic 14c.

  • Automatic Update of Advanced Management Console Agent

    When upgrading the Advanced Management Console from versions below 2.22 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.

  • Advanced Management Console Agent Installation on macOS

    While installing Advanced Management Console agent on macOS, a dialog appears confirming that the AMCAgent app is downloaded. Click Open to install the agent successfully.

  • JRE Path Reported Differently in macOS Catalina

    Due to change in the macOS Catalina file system, the files and folders present in the user directory are displayed in another path as well. To avoid reporting duplicates, the path /System/Volumes/ is excluded from JRE tracking by default on macOS. To include this path, remove the /System/Volumes/ entry from the Paths To Exclude From JRE Tracking field. For detailed steps, see Tracking Managed JREs in Agents

  • Password Reset Support

    The password reset functionality added in AMC 2.17 does not support LDAP accounts.

  • Java Web Start

    Java Web Start has been removed from Java SE 11 and later. Hence, while uploading JRE using the Add Java Version window, the jnlp file gets downloaded. You need to run the java webstart command to open the Add Java Version window and upload the file.

    For additional information about Java Web Start, see: Java Client Roadmap Update.

  • Security Recommendations for WebLogic Server

    AMC requires that you keep your instance of WebLogic Server up-to-date with security patches. It is recommended that you subscribe to receive notifications of Oracle’s Critical Patch Update Advisories and Security Alerts. Refer to for instructions.

  • Java Plug-in Support for JDK 8

    Java plug-in support is removed from JDK 8 (8u271) on macOS, Linux, and Solaris platforms.

  • Java Plug-in Support in Browsers

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