Notice: Over the next few months, we're reorganizing the App Engine documentation site to make it easier to find content and better align with the rest of Google Cloud products. The same content will be available, but the navigation will now match the rest of the Cloud products. If you have feedback or questions as you navigate the site, click Send Feedback.

Feature deprecations

The Google Cloud Platform Terms of Service (section 1.4(d), "Discontinuation of Services") defines the deprecation policy that applies to App Engine. The deprecation policy only applies to the services, features, or products listed therein.

After a service, feature, or product is officially deprecated, it continues to be available for at least the period of time defined in the Terms of Service. After this period of time, the service is scheduled for shutdown.

The following table lists current App Engine feature deprecations and their related shutdown schedules.
