Avantra Agent

Agent version support timeframes follow the Avantra server matrix listed above with the exception of Avantra Agent 20.5.10 which is supported with major security fixes only to allow for the management of older 32-bit windows systems.

Customers are encouraged to keep their Agent installations current with their Avantra server major installation where possible. Avantra servers are fully backwards compatible with older agent versions however, to ensure the best experience and adopt the latest security and bug fixes, we recommend upgrading agents to match your Avantra server as soon as practical. The auto-update functionality within Avantra for remote agents is provided for exactly this reason.

This is a list of verified architectures upon which the Avantra Agent has been tested and will function correctly. The Avantra Agent may work on other Linux distributions correctly as long as you have the GNU C Library (glibc) version 2.7 or higher installed along with the required JRE version.

Java Runtime

Avantra 24 is supported to run under Java 17 LTS only. We recommend the use of the Temurin JRE as provided by Adoptium from the Eclipse foundation (formerly known as Adopt OpenJDK). As per the support matrix from Adoptium, Temurin 17 currently has an announced support timeframe that is longer than all other Temurin versions (at least Oct 2027 at time of publication).

Please note that Avantra strongly recommends keeping your Java Runtime (JRE) installation current with the latest versions from your provider. Typically, new versions are released monthly and include security and bug fixes which are best practice to adopt as soon as possible. Avantra supports each java runtime release for a period of 6 months (JRE releases are currently expired by their providers typically within 4 months). JREs outside of this timeframe should be updated prior to seeking support from the Avantra support team.

What Java Runtime should I use?

  • Agents 24 and above use Java Runtime version 17 only
  • Agents 23.3 - 23.9 support both Java Runtime version 8 and Java Runtime version 17
  • Agents up to and including 23.2.X use Java Runtime version 8 only


Avantra currently supports PostgreSQL and MSSQL databases as listed in the table below. Typically we continue to support a database version until the provider (PostgreSQL or Microsoft) list it as out of mainstream maintenance. Please note we do not support database versions that are operated using an extended maintenance support package.

Avantra supports the use of Hyperscaler (GCP/AWS/Azure) database services e.g. AWS PostgreSQL RDS as long as the version in-use remains a supported version by the database provider
