Deprecated features in SQL Server 2019 Reporting Services

APPLIES TO: ✔️ SQL Server Reporting Services (2019 and later) ✔️ Power BI Report Server

When we mark a feature as deprecated, it means:

  • The feature is in maintenance mode only. We'll make no new changes, including changes related to interoperability with new features.
  • We strive not to remove a deprecated feature from future releases, to make upgrades easier. However, in rare situations, we may choose to permanently remove the feature from Reporting Services if it limits future innovations.
  • For new development work, we don't recommend using deprecated features.
