Cornerstone offers two learning discovery experiences: Learner Home and Browse for Training. Browse for Training is Cornerstone’s legacy learning discovery experience. Browse for Training was previously scheduled for deprecation in 2021.

Therefore, the deprecation of Browse for Training has been postponed. The new deprecation date is not yet determined, but will not occur in 2021. Once a new date is determined, organizations will have three release cycles before the deprecation to manage any change management needs.

Deprecation of the Proxy Enrollment API Yes

Cornerstone’s legacy Proxy Enrollment API, available as part of Cornerstone API, is being replaced by the new Learning Assignment API. The Proxy Enrollment API end-of-life deprecation will occur with the Feb 2021 Release.

Clients, partners, and vendors must modify their code for existing integrations that use Cornerstone's Proxy Enrollment API (/services/api/ProxyEnroll/CreateProxyEnrollment and /services/api/ProxyEnroll/ProxyEnrollmentStatus). The code should be updated to use the new Learning Assignment API instead and this should be done prior to the Feb ’21 Release.

Cornerstone will no longer address defects reported with the Proxy Enrollment API, and no enhancements will be made to the API. Calls to the Proxy Enrollment API will begin to fail starting with the Feb '21 release. If you are building new integrations that require training to be assigned to users via an API, it is necessary to use the new Learning Assignment API.

With this enhancement, a new eeds integration is available, allowing organizations to view and track CME credits imported from eeds within learners' transcripts in the Cornerstone Learning Management System (LMS). Using this integration, learners and learning administrators are able to search, find, and confirm CME credits on the learner's transcript.
