Deprecations and Migrations

We are actively migrating customers to new behaviors for all deprecations listed below. Please review these carefully to ensure you've taken any necessary steps to avoid service disruption. You can also search tenant logs for any errors caused by using deprecated features. To learn more, read Search Logs for Deprecation Errors.

If you have any questions, visit the Migrations section of the Auth0 Community site or create a ticket in our Support Center. To learn more, you can also read Migration Process.

Private Cloud Custom Domain Deprecation

Deprecated: 17 June 2021

End of life: 20 December 2021 

To achieve consistency across all Auth0 deployments and focus on enhancing the Auth0 Custom Domain feature, we are discontinuing the Private Cloud Custom Domain capability on December 20, 2021. Consistency enables us to enhance the feature and fix reliability issues faster, improving operational efficiency and enabling customers to get value out of custom domains more quickly. To learn more about migration to Auth0 Custom Domains, read Migrate Private Cloud Custom Domains.

Logout Redirect Validation

Deprecated: 25 May 2021

End of life: 01 December 2021 

On 01 December 2021, the logout behavior will change to always redirect users to the URI passed to the Auth0 logout APIs instead of using the returnTo query parameter passed by Identity Providers to /login/callback during the execution of the logout. If Auth0 does not have a record of a preceding call to one of these APIs, logout will complete, but redirection will not occur and an error page will be displayed to end users. To learn more, read Logout Redirects Migration Guide.

Legacy Network Edge Deprecation

Deprecated: 05 May 2021 (Public Cloud)

End of life: 03 November 2021 (Public Cloud)

Auth0 legacy network edge will cease to function on Public Cloud. After 03 November 2021, Public Cloud tenants who have not completed a migration to the new Auth0 network edge will no longer receive traffic. All new custom domains are automatically created on the new network edge.

Application Admin Dashboard Role deprecation

Deprecated: 01 February 2021

End of life: 30 September 2021 (Public Cloud), September 2021 (Private Cloud monthly release)

Auth0 is changing the role-based access control to the Dashboard. The Application Administrator role as defined today is being deprecated. After 01 February 2021, administrators won't be able to invite members with the deprecated Application Administrator role. Existing application-specific administrators will continue to be able to use the Dashboard with the existing permission set until the end of life date.

A new set of Dashboard roles is available for improved and more secure collaboration among team members, including viewer and editor roles with limited access. A new Editor - Specific Apps role replaces the previous Application Administrator role for subscription plans where editor roles are supported.

Your tenants will be affected by this deprecation if the following criteria are met:

  • Created before 01 February 2021

  • Have at least one tenant member with the Application Admin role

  • Haven't opted-in to the Dashboard roles feature preview

Beginning on 01 February 2021, Auth0 will display a migration toggle to help you prepare for this change. To learn more, read Migrate to Manage Dashboard New Roles.

Legacy TLS Deprecation

Deprecated: 19 January 2021

End of life:

  • Public Cloud: 10 May 2021

  • Private Cloud: June Private Cloud Release (v2106)

As of 10 May 2021 for Public Cloud and the June Private Cloud Release (v2106), the Auth0 network edge will no longer accept TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1 traffic.  These legacy protocols are insecure, with well-known weaknesses and vulnerabilities within the industry.  For maximum security, all Auth0 clients must upgrade to TLS 1.2 or later. The exact details and steps required will vary, depending on your application. To learn more, read Upgrade to TLS 1.2, what action to take? posted in the Auth0 Community.

Azure AD/ADFS email verification deprecation

Deprecated:

  • Public Cloud: 18 November 2020

  • Private Cloud: 01 December 2020

End of life:

  • Public Cloud: 18 May 2021

  • Private Cloud: June Private Cloud Release (v2106)

Auth0 previously set the email_verified field to true in Azure AD and ADFS connections. If you used Azure AD/ADFS connections before this deprecation date, you have a tenant setting that overrides the connection setting for email verification and keeps the previous behavior.

On 18 May 2021 in Public Cloud and the June Private Cloud Release (v2106), Auth0 begins using the connection-level property for all Azure AD/ADFS connections. You should make sure all your connections are configured properly before that date. To learn more, read Email Verification for Azure AD and ADFS.

Device credential metadata without user_id deprecation

Deprecated: 31 August 2020

End of life: 17 December 2020

Auth0 now requires that you provide the user_id when you use the GET /api/v2/device-credentials endpoint. If your request does not provide a user_id, it will return a 400 status code. Check the depnote in your tenant logs to see if you are affected by this deprecation. To learn more, read Check Deprecation Errors.

Auth0 has identified tenants affected by this deprecation and contacted the administrators for those tenants. If your tenant is currently making requests without a user_id, you should make the change as soon as possible.

User Search v2 deprecation

Deprecated: 10 November 2018

End of life: 30 June 2019 (Public Cloud), May 2021 (Private Cloud monthly release)

For Public Cloud, User Search v2 was deprecated and you should have taken action before 30 June 2019. Notifications were sent to customers that need to complete this migration.

For Private Cloud, User Search v1 and v2 endpoints will be no longer be available after the May Private Cloud monthly release and have been replaced with the new User Search v3 endpoint.

Unpaginated Management API v2 Request deprecation

Deprecated: 21 July 2020 (Public Cloud)

End of life: 26 January 2021 (Public Cloud)

After 26 January 2021, requests to the following Management API v2 endpoints will return a maximum of 50 items for Public Cloud tenants. To retrieve more items, you must include page and per_page parameters. Beginning on 21 July 2020, Auth0 will display tenant logs and a migration toggle to help you prepare for this change.

All Public Cloud tenants are affected that are created before 21 July 2020 and are actively calling affected endpoints without passing the per_page parameter for queries that can return more than 1 result. Tenants are not affected if they are created after 21 July 2020, are not using the affected endpoints, are using the affected endpoints and passing the per_page parameter, or are making queries that always return only 1 result. To learn more, read Migrate to Management API v2 Endpoint Paginated Queries.

Node.js v8 Extensibility Runtime deprecation

Deprecated: 15 April 2020

End of life: TBA

The Webtask engine powering Auth0 extensibility points currently uses Node 8. Beginning 13 December 2019, Node.js v8 was no longer under long-term support (LTS). This means that critical security fixes were no longer back-ported to this version. As such, Auth0 is migrating the Webtask runtime from Node.js v8 to Node.js v12. On 15 April 2020, we made the Node 12 runtime available for extensibility to all public cloud customers. You have been provided a migration switch that allows you to control your environment's migration to the new runtime environment. To learn more about required migration steps, read Extensibility and Node 12 Migration.

Resource Owner Password /oauth/ro deprecation

Deprecation: 08 July 2017

End of life: TBD

As of 08 July 2017 Auth0 has deprecated the /oauth/ro endpoint for both password and passwordless connections. You can now implement the same functionality using the /oauth/token endpoint. To learn more, read Resource Owner Password Flow Migration.

Auth0-analytics.js deprecation

Deprecation: January 2018

End of life: January 2021

Auth0 has deprecated the use of the auth0-analytics.js library that adds Facebook and Google Analytics integration with Lock. It listens for events in Lock and passes them to the Auth0-tag-manager.js library. It may still function in some legacy cases. This library is no longer maintained. You may need to write custom code to use auth0-tag-manage.js to manage proxy requests to third-party analytics libraries such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google.

Passwordless Endpoint from Confidential Applications deprecation

Auth0 has deprecated the use of the /passwordless/start endpoint from confidential applications when Auth0 cannot authenticate that the call is made on behalf of the application. To learn more, read Migrate to Passwordless Endpoint from Confidential Applications.
