What legacy features will be deprecated in R80?

One disadvantage of having a product in the marketplace for 22 years is that it has a lot of legacy features built into it--features that no one should be using anymore but for various reasons, are.

One particular feature that comes to mind: The Security Servers and the features it supported, such as:

  • Resource Objects (HTTP/FTP/SMTP with Resource, UFP, CVP, etc)
    • Most of this can be done by APCL/URLF/UserCheck
  • Legacy Authentication (User/Client/Session)
    • Identity Awareness handles most use cases

The Load Balancer is another, though with AWS, this feature gets used again.


Are there any features like this that will simply not be available in R80 (even managing legacy R7x gateways)?

Will the upgrade process catch the unsupported features?
