Some of the authentication methods in the rule Action list are in the process of being deprecated and will be removed at a future date. Until they are decommissioned, existing policies that contain deprecated actions remain unchanged.
Deprecated (legacy) actions are available for backward compatibility although the names have been changed to reflect their legacy status. For the updated names, see Rule authentication actions.
Deprecated authentication actions are only available in the rule Action list if the All Methods check box is selected in the Allowed Authentication Methods section at the policy level. We recommend that you upgrade all existing policy rules to the new, more specific authentication actions.
