This impacts only customers who are using the features mentioned in this article. Deprecation means that we intend to remove the feature functionalities from a future release of portals. The features will continue to work and are supported until they are officially removed. However, we will not invest in new functionalities for the features. After removal, the features will no longer work.
The following features are being deprecated from portal capabilities for Dynamics 365:
Web Page Tracking logs a record when a user views a web page in a web browser. The date/time and user's IP Address are logged along with the identity of the user viewing the page. If the user is authenticated, the log is associated with the contact record related to the user, otherwise the anonymous identity is recorded.
Note: This functionality has a negative performance impact on portals and it is recommended not to use it for production.
Web File Tracking logs a record when a user downloads a web file in a web browser. The date/time and user's IP Address are logged along with the identity of the user downloading the file. If the user is authenticated, the log is associated with the contact record related to the user, otherwise the anonymous identity is recorded.
Solution version deprecation means that Microsoft will not be testing backward compatibility of these solutions with the latest version of portals code in future.
