Abstract

Lists the deprecated features in XP and XC 10.2.

The following features are deprecated in Sitecore Experience Platform and Sitecore Experience Commerce 10.2.

Support for the Azure search provider, including any related policies and configuration, is removed in Sitecore XP 10.2. We recommend that you use Solr search in your solution.

The Update Center feature is removed in Sitecore 10.2. The Update Center icon is no longer displayed in the Sitecore Launchpad. The Package Management Service, used to provide package to the Update Center, is also removed.

In memory caching (Sitecore XC)

The in memory cache provider is deprecated in Sitecore XC 10.2 and will be removed in a future release. Use Redis caching instead for Commerce Engine and CE Connect caching.

Commerce Ops service (Sitecore XC)

Sitecore XC does not include a Commerce Ops service in Sitecore XC 10.2. You can use the Authoring instance instead.
