Upgrading from 2.x to 3.x

Flex-sdk 3.x contains several breaking changes as well as new features. To upgrade your service from Flex-sdk 2.x to 3.x:

  • All email and push methods now return a promise. It is now required that you either handle the promise, or pass a callback.
  • For all stores (e.g. dataStore, userStore, etc), the deprecated options skipBl and useMasterSecret have been removed and no longer function. Use useBl and useUserContext instead.
  • All asynchonous modules (dataStore, groupStore, roleStore, endpointRunner, userStore, email, and push) now return a promise or accept a callback.
  • For more information on what's new, see the Changelog.
