End of life notification - Final Notice
This section contains notifications for upcoming termination of apps, features or programmatic access (APIs):
Termination of v1 REST API support
Why are we doing this?
- Centrify introduced the v2 enrollment APIs with the 17.2 release to support setting of additional resource-related information during enrollment. This new version is a superset of the original v1 enrollment APIs. As the Centrify Agent for Linux and Mac agents have been using the v2 APIs since 17.2, we are now planning to disable the old v1 enrollment APIs in 18.10.
Who will be affected?
- Customers who deploy Centrify Agent for Linux/Mac agents.
- Customers who develop their applications using the following REST APIs: ServerAgent/Register, ServerAgent/Enroll, ServerAgent/EnableFeatures
What steps do I need to take?
- If you deploy Centrify Agent for Linux/Mac agents, upgrade to the latest version of Centrify Agent for Linux/Mac.
If you develop applications using the REST APIs:
- Change your code to call the corresponding V2 REST API (e.g., ServerAgent/RegisterV2, ServerAgent/EnrollV2, ServerAgent/EnableFeaturesV2).
What happens if I do nothing? What errors or issues am I likely to see?
- If you have deployed older versions of Centrify Agent for Linux/Mac agents, existing enrolled agents will continue to work, however new features will not be available.
- After the Centrify Identity Platform is upgraded to 18.10, once the agent is unenrolled it cannot re-enroll again. You MUST upgrade the agent to re-enroll.
- If you have developed applications using the REST APIs, the REST API call will fail with an error.
