Deprecation timeline

This article identifies features, or capabilities that will no longer be supported and will be removed at some point in the future. Please note that this is not a product roadmap and is subject to change.

Terminology

  • Deprecation refers to features or capabilities that are in the process of being replaced by superior alternatives. Deprecating a feature or capability means that UiPath discourages its use, but the feature continues to be available. Deprecated features or capabilities are often targeted for removal in future versions.

    Deprecated features or capabilities are fully supported and continue to work until we effectively remove them.

  • Removal means a feature or capability is removed and is no longer available for use or supported.
  • Out of support means UiPath® will stop issuing patches and hotfixes to a certain product version. Out of support dates do not make the subject of this article. For more details on out of support versions, see theout-of-support versions.
