This article explains the reasons we are dropping support for V1 REST API and addresses some common questions our customers may have.
➢ Why are we doing this?
Centrify introduced the V2 enrollment APIs in 17.2 to support settings of additional resource-related information during enrollment.

o For customers who deploy Centrify Agent for Linux/Mac agents:

o For customers who develop their applications using the REST APIs.
