In order to improve performance for all Agile Central users and make room for more new functionality, we are going to be deprecating all dojo apps from our app catalog. This is part of our larger effort to retire WSAPI 1.x and the adhoc endpoint, which has been deprecated for several years and is causing stability and performance issues to our servers. 

 

For our next round of deprecations, we are going to be removing the following apps. All users that are currently using these apps will see a notice at the top of the app and custom pages that they are on as well as a notice in the app catalog and will be given several weeks to remove these apps. 

 

Note: These apps will be removed from the app catalog, custom pages and dashboards on the deprecation date listed.
