Task Worker

BREAKING CHANGE for 2020.2 -> 2021.1

The following are breaking changes for the 2021.1 release.

API Removal Due to Scheduled Deprecations

The table below shows a list of APIs that have been removed from Task Worker. Our policy is to provide a deprecation notice two (2) release cycles in advance (at a minimum) before the API is removed. This list represents all deprecations announced in the 2020.1 release.

Additionally, app-task_worker is no longer included in the 2021.1 release. Functionality that previously existed in Task Worker now exists in Workflow Engine.

What should I do?

Review any custom apps and adapters that might reference any APIs on the list and change them to the replacement call (or remove them if no replacement call is provided).
