Overview

This document contains information about which features will become or have been marked as deprecated and will NO longer be supported or available in future versions. Each deprecated feature section contains a workaround to help users achieve the same functionality without major issues.

Take into consideration that from the moment a feature is declared as deprecated, no new functions will be added to the feature, and bugs will not be fixed.

Wiki Information

The ProcessMaker wiki page of the deprecated feature will contain a warning message at the top of the page or at the beginning of the feature section. The warning message indicates when the feature was deprecated, and what to use instead.

Deprecation Mark in a Dynaform

As of ProcessMaker 3.4.0, to make deprecated features easily recognizable inside the ProcessMaker designer, a red exclamation icon displays on the deprecated feature's button, as well as in the Dynaform designer, as shown in the images below.

In the Web controls palette, users can click this icon to display a message with additional information about the feature.

This message includes:

  • Deprecation Version: The version of ProcessMaker in which the feature is marked as deprecated.
  • Reason: A brief description of why the feature is being marked as deprecated.
  • Alternatives: Possible alternatives or workarounds.

Inside the Dynaform, users can see an information tooltip by hovering the control.

If the feature is included in a Dynaform, the deprecation icon displays in the Dynaform in design mode, and a warning message displays at the top of the Dynaform to inform ProcessMaker architects about the deprecated feature.
