According to our latest Prod
These support statements require some clarification.
To use Maximo applications that use applets (for example, Scheduler or Workflow Designer), you have to install a JRE or JDK, and enable the Java applet in your browser. This is usually done by down
You can check the do not show this again button and click Run. You will then see another dialog:
Again, you can check the do not show again checkbox and click the Allow button, and the applet will run.
Google Chrome 37, which is supported for Maximo 7.6, allows Java applets to be run. However, beginning with Chrome version 45, released in September 2015, Chrome eliminated support for NPAPI (Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface), the cross-browser application program interface (API) for plugins. This has an impact on plugins for Microsoft Silverlight, Oracle Java, Facebook Video and other similar NPAPI-based plugins.

Similarly, Microsoft Edge browser, installed with Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016, does not support plug-ins, including Java applets.
Maximo using Microsoft Edge in Graphical Scheduler
What does this means for users with the latest version of Chrome or Edge when they log into Maximo? It means that, while you can use Edge or Chrome to log into Maximo, you cannot use applications or application features that use Java applets: Workflow Designer, Attach Image in Attached Documents, and the Asset Topology Viewer in Assets.
IBM Maximo Asset Management Feature Pack 22.214.171.124 replaced the Java applets for Scheduler and the Direct Print and Direct Print with Attachments function of Printing.
If you need to use those applications or features, you must use a Java-enabled browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, or an older version of Google Chrome.
