Deprecated features

This page lists computing platforms, browsers, and features for which Splunk has deprecated or removed support.

What does "deprecated" mean?

Deprecated features and platforms continue to work and Splunk supports them until support is removed. However, customers should begin to plan now for the future removal of support.

What does "removed" mean?

When Splunk removes support for a feature, browser, or platform, it means that the feature, browser, or platform no longer works with the Splunk platform, and customers must find an alternative.
