In BMC Server Automation, either of the following actions:
- To stop ongoing support for certain types of functionality. BMC Server Automation continues to support deprecated functions in limited contexts to allow for backward compatibility. In a future release, BMC Server Automation will stop all support for deprecated functionality.
- To remove a property, custom property class, or instance from the Property Dictionary even though that item is used elsewhere in BMC Server Automation. A deprecated item still exists, but it is no longer displayed in the Property Dictionary. After it is deprecated, you cannot create another property, custom property class, or instance with the same name.
