Deprecation: Genesys Cloud Bridge integrations
|Announced on||Decommission start date|
|January 16, 2019||January 1, 2021|
The Bridge platform performs integrations between Genesys Cloud and your systems or services, on-premise or in the cloud. The platform’s modular architecture consists of Bridge services, Bridge server, and Bridge connectors.
On the January 1, 2021 decommission start date, Genesys development will begin to scale down the support services and remove unused connector services as final customers migrate off the connectors. Genesys will also introduce periodic disabling of the connectors during off hours. In early 2021, this article will be updated with a schedule for disabling each connector, with two-week advance notice. Genesys’ objective throughout the decommission and removal process is to ensure that we do not negatively impact our customers’ businesses.

What does this mean?
Between the announcement date and the removal date for this feature, the Bridge integrations and the Bridge server will continue to function, but Genesys will no longer support them past their deprecation dates. We will continue to resolve any major breakage until the removal date.

How can I prepare for the feature removal?
Each Bridge integration will have a different migration plan to provide comparable or similar functionality using alternative means. Some of the migration plans include the delivery of additional capabilities directly on the Genesys Cloud platform, while others may be delivered through open source or third-party applications, or through partner offerings available on the Genesys AppFoundry. Customers using the Bridge integrations will need to follow through with the migration plans for their specific integration. The migration plans will be made available through Genesys Customer Care, Genesys Professional Services, your Customer Success Manager, or your Genesys Cloud TAM.
