Summary of changes

In this section we'll provide an overview of the changes we intend to make, so you can start thinking how it might impact your apps. Once they're ready, we'll indicate when a change has been implemented.

Removing SOAP API


SOAP API has been deprecated in Crowd 4.3. It will no longer be available in Crowd 5.0.

If your app or custom scripts rely on using SOAP API, you’ll need to update them to use REST API instead. For information on how to migrate, see SOAP to REST migration guide.
