Sterling Control Center Java thick client Admin UI functionality needs to ported over to the web based Admin UI

System : Sterling Control Center (SCC)
Actor : MFT Administrators

Presently to setup, install and configure SCC, we need to use Java thick client which is a Java WS application connecting on non-standard ports and requiring a Windows jump server to connect to SCC as it is installed on Linux server in DMZ. This functionality needs to be ported over to web based Admin GUI to avoid all the non-standard ports, SSL configuration issues, Firewall port opening issues etc.

Cognos report are only available on thick client and can only be run via our jump hosts causing massive issues rolling this out to our enterprise users.

    We have partly moved the thick client capabilities to Web UI. In our upcoming release this we will be depracating thick client entirely by moving to modernized Web UI.
