Deprecation of Users and Organizational Unit (OU) Loads and Feeds for Data Load Wizard (DLW) to Begin with the May '22 Release

Ability to perform Users and OU data loads and feeds using Data Load Wizard (DLW) will be deprecated with an end-of-life in the May ‘22 Release for most customers. End-of-support for most customers occurred in the February ‘22 Release and support for defects related to DLW Users and OU loads and feeds also stopped at this time.

Data Load Wizard is a legacy data load tool which was built on older technology, is accessed using an older user interface (UI), and experiences slow performance and limited load type support. Edge Import addresses these issues with a modern user interface and an intuitive workflow that can support a greater number of concurrent loads, while providing administrators with a delightful user experience.

Existing customers who are ready to migrate to Edge Import will be able to enable Edge Import: Core on Edge Marketplace and review the migration and starter guides to help them through the migration steps. All customers are required to complete their migrations by the May ‘22 release which will be the end-of-life date for Data Load Wizard Users and OU loads and feeds.

For customers that have not self-migrated already in stage, Data Load Wizard User and OU Loads will be deprecated, and Edge Import will be activated automatically in the stage environment with the April 26 stage deployment.

For customers that have not self-migrated already in production and pilot, Data Load Wizard User and OU loads will be deprecated, and Edge Import will be activated automatically in production and pilot environments with the May ’22 Release deployment on May 13.

Customers using Data Load Wizard User and OU feeds, please note that feeds cannot be auto-migrated. Customers must self-migrate their feeds to Edge Import.

Since the Data Load Wizard itself is not deprecated yet, the Track Data Loads page will still be available to use to view data loaded using Data Load Wizard in the past, even for customers that have migrated their Users and OU loads to Edge Import already.

The following customers are excluded from the May ’22 deprecation schedule:

  • Customers that have already self-migrated to Edge Import and disabled their Data Load Wizard Users and OU loads
  • Customers using the following Data Load Wizard features that are not available in Edge Import:
    • Groups OU load (in last 180 days prior to April 12)
    • Recruitment and use GUID in Data Load Wizard Users feeds
    • Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (SPII) fields - Date of Birth/SSN

Customers that fit the above exclusion criteria will be informed when these features are available in Edge Import and will be given at least three months to deprecate.
