App Deprecation

What does app deprecation mean? It means that CA Agile Central is removing the app from the app catalog in order to make room for new apps and to reduce clutter. Our goal is to always provide the most valuable apps to our customers, and that means occasionally removing existing apps, especially ones that are negatively impacting performance.

The deprecated apps will no longer appear in the app catalog. Additionally, the help descriptions for these apps will be removed. Instances of these apps on custom pages and dashboards will also be removed as part of the deprecation.

The list of deprecated apps will be posted here, along with recommendations for alternatives.

* These apps are reliant on the deprecated WSAPI ADHOC endpoint (/slm/webservice/1.x/adhoc.js). This endpoint has been deprecated for several years and retiring it will improve performance for all CA Agile Central users. If you are using any built-in or custom apps that are using the adhoc endpoint, we strongly recommend moving to other apps or pages that do not use it, which includes all of the recommended apps or pages provided in the table above.
