By which version will pulses be retired?

The documentation with each release is not explicit about retiring pulses, while it has been made clear pulses will be replaced "in a future release" (link). This has us anxiously checking the docs for any mention on the subject before we upgrade.

Hi @lvdv
There's currently no explicit date/version for complete deprecation. Currently the Dashboard Subscription functionality is being expanded even further, which is what Pulses are being deprecated in favor of.
I think we would develop a tool to convert the Pulses to Dashboard Subscriptions before removing Pulses completely.

Hi, is there an update on this? We'd like to understand how proactive we need to be about removing pulses. Thanks!

@jadabdallah Pulses will likely be removed in 0.43 and there will be migration to subscriptions. If you want to be proactive, then stop using Pulses and start using Subscriptions.

Thanks @flamber, we've already started the transition but still have many existent pulses. You mentioned above a tool to convert pulses to dashboard subscriptions. is this still happening or do you recommend getting started with that manually?

@jadabdallah There will be a migration, when you upgrade.
Since Pulses and Subscriptions are not totally equally, then perhaps the migration might create a lot of things that you don't want/need, so doing it manually will make sure that everything is done exactly how you want.

Thanks a lot!

@flamber, so are pulses still supported in version 0.43? We would like to update but still have some pulses that are not migrated yet.
I couldn't find anything in the official documentation or release notes.

@juliansteger-sc Pulses are still working. There's no timeline for when they will be migrated. You should stop using Pulses and change to Subscriptions.
