Pulse Extension points are deprecated

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Deprecated survey APIs

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

APIs that were available in the PegaSurvey ruleset have been superseded by Pega® Platform APIs. Although older APIs continue to function in this release, it is recommended that you update your flows and flow actions to use the new APIs because they provide the latest survey capabilities, and deprecated features are not supported.

The following table maps deprecated APIs to their replacement APIs.
