Deprecated and removed features
Adobe constantly evaluates product capabilities, to over time reinvent or replace older features with more modern alternatives to improve overall customer value, always under careful consideration of backward compatibility. Additionally, as Adobe Experience Manager as a Cloud Service provides a cloud-native deployment model, certain capabilities and features were replaced by cloud-native counterparts.
To communicate the impending removal/replacement of AEM capabilities, the following rules apply:
- Announcement of deprecation comes first. Deprecated capabilities continue to remain available but are not enhanced further.
- Capabilities announced to be deprecated are removed in the subsequent major release, at the earliest. The actual target date for removal is announced.
This process gives customers at least one release cycle to adapt their implementation to a new version or successor of a deprecated capability, before actual removal.
This section lists features and capabilities that have been marked as deprecated in Experience Manager as a Cloud Service. Typically, features that are planned to be removed in a future release are set to deprecated first, with an alternative provided.
Customers are advised to review if they make use of the feature/capability in their current deployment, and make plans to change their implementation to use the alternative provided.
