Upcoming removal of developer-based app authentication

In early October, we announced the improved app authentication mechanism for Forge where asApp calls started being made by a special user created specifically for your app during its installation.

We also communicated that the previous developer-based authentication method is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. If your app makes deprecated asApp calls and hasn’t yet been updated, these requests will stop working from the 23rd of November 2020.

How do I update my app?
You simply have to re-deploy your app by running forge deploy , followed by forge install --upgrade for every installation of your app.

Where can I find additional help?
For more information, see upgrade the app.


Hello, as I understand “Forge” is rather new technology and is in beta version yet (https://developer.atlassian.com/platform/forge/) so this change is not related to Atlassian Connect Apps?

Hi @ivan.babikov, you’re correct! This is Forge specifics, nothing related to Connect Apps. :wink:
