Occasionally, we remove functionality from Trust Protection Platform to stay current with emerging technologies and to serve the changing needs of our customers. Some of the more common reasons for deprecating features include the following:
- Minimal use of a feature by the majority of our customers
- Technologies that have become obsolete
- Features that have become too expensive to maintain
- Changes in our technology roadmap
- Important security enhancements to Trust Protection Platform

Scheduled Feature Deprecations
Although planned feature deprecations are subject to change, the following list indicates which features are planned for removal from upcoming releases of Trust Protection Platform:
Venafi Platform 23.1
Depreciation of version 9 of CyberArk PAS
The integration with CyberArk PAS version 9 will no longer be supported in version 23.1 of Trust Protection Platform. Version 9 of CyberArk PAS was declared end-of-life in 2020. Customers can continue to use newer versions of CyberArk such as 10, 11 or 12.
Secret Store association endpoints moving under Certificates WebSDK
We have made a database change to move attributes to better organize and optimize certificate database lookups. These changes mostly affect backend processes. However, there are some changes that will affect users of the WebSDK. These changes will happen with these SecretStore endpoints:
The only attributes that will be available in the SecretStore will be these:
- Store Archived
- Store Added
- Key Algorithm
- Template Major version
- Template Minor version
- Template Name
- Template Old
All other attributes will now only be available from existing Certificates WebSDK API endpoints.
Venafi Platform 23.3
WebSDK Authorization Method involving API Keys (End-of-Support)
The WebSDK authorization method that involves API keys was formally deprecated in Trust Protection Platform 20.2 and will no longer be available in code beginning in 22.3. The "WebSDk" permission that is available on users and groups will no longer be available. The temporary license key introduced in 22.2 will no longer be available.
Imperva MX provisioning driver will be deprecated
Starting in 23.2 Imperva MX driver will be able to provision device certificates only. After upgrading to 23.2 existing Imperva MX applications will be converted to Basic applications and retain certificate association. Provisioning certificates in bulk to Imperva MX can be accomplished using the Adaptable Bulk Provisioning job.
