If you utilize any custom software or integrations that interact with Autodesk cloud services or rely on Autodesk Platform Services (formerly Forge), you need to be aware of an imminent change in authentication methods. As of Tuesday, April 30, 2024, Autodesk will be discontinuing the "V1" authentication method, transitioning fully to a new authentication protocol. This transition is crucial to maintain seamless functionality and avoid any disruptions in service.

Authentication is a critical component of working with Autodesk cloud software and platform services. It ensures secure access to your applications and data while maintaining the integrity of your workflows. Currently, Autodesk offers two authentication versions, but come April 30, 2024, the "V1" method will no longer be supported. Any application or integration that relies on this deprecated authentication method will encounter issues and may cease to function as intended.

To ensure the continued smooth operation of your applications and integrations, it is imperative to assess whether they utilize the V1 authentication method. Even if you're unsure, it's crucial to conduct a thorough review of your systems to identify any potential vulnerabilities or compatibility issues.

If you find that your applications or integrations rely on V1 authentication, it's essential to take proactive steps to update them before the deadline. Failure to do so may result in interruptions to your services, impacting productivity and potentially causing frustration for users.

For more detailed information and guidance on navigating this authentication transition, we recommend referring to Autodesk's official blog post on the matter. This resource will provide you with insights into the changes, steps to take, and any additional support available to facilitate a smooth transition.
