The version 12.0 UserInterface Java is only available in version 11.2 compatibility mode and will be the final version.
From version 12.0 onwards, all new features and enhancements will only be accessible via the Automic Web Interface (AWI).
Does the final Java UI (version 12.0) work with AE version 12.1?
The Java UI can login.
Some Objects are restricted, due to changes in AE V12.1.
Compatibility is not guaranteed.
Support will not accept issues reported for version 12.1 AE and Java UI.
Version 12.0 is supported until 2020-09-30, so there is no immediate pressure to upgrade.
Applications Manager requires a web server to access the into page. We ship with Apache but it is also possible to use IIS. The following is a quick summary of how I setup access to my instance using IIS. Please note this was set up with Applications Manager and IIS set up locally on Windows Server 2016. Please also note that we do not officially support IIS so for any questions beyond what is listed below please contact Microsoft support regarding.
Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
Right click Default Web Site, select Rename; Enter ApplicationsManager; press Enter (you can name it anything you wish)
Set the path for the Applications Manager's web site
Click ApplicationsManager (to populate the right and Actions pane)
Click Basic Settings (in the Actions pane)
For Physical path: click Browse; navigate to and select C:\inetpub\wwwroot; click OK (this was the default path for me and my IIS install)
Set the port for the Applications Manager web site
Select Applications Manager
Select the http row; click Edit
In the Port: box, key 5050(his may vary in your organization)
Click OK; click Close
Add Intro.html as a default page
Click ApplicationsManager; double click Default Document
Add the required additional MIME types
Double click MIME Types
In File name extension enter .jnlp
In MIME type enter application/x-java-jnlp-file
Repeat these steps for these additional types:
.cfg - text/xml
.css - text/xml [defined as text/css by default]
.hs - text/xml
.jhm - text/xml
.mft - text/xml
.properties - text/xml
[.xml - text/xml - already present]
Copy the following from C:\ApplicationsManager\web (or where ever you have AM installed) to C:\inetpub\wwwroot:
Add the Virtual Directory for the Applications Manager's web folder
Right click ApplicationsManager, select Add Virtual Directory…
In the Alias: box, key APPMGRD (or whatever your AM master name is)
In the Physical path: box, click the browse (…) button; select C:\ApplicationsManager\web
Click Stop then start under Manage Server in the Action pane
You should now be able to access the Instance using your weblink which was the same the instillation gave me for my Apache install.
You may also want to restrict access by clicking ApplicationsManager then Double click IP Address and Domain Restrictions and setting that up.
