What's the impact if any on the Remote Authentication?

Sorry. I should elaborate. Basically we did some API changes this weekend which we did not foresee would cause problems. They did however. Thus we will try and get a good practice on announing changes before hand, and of course I should add a note on impact and time.

Nobody should be relying on the authentication-mode attribute in any way. It's a dead attribute in our perspective.

    Functional impact: None

    When: In no less than 2 weeks

We will also be announcing these things on http://twitter.com/zendeskops and we will consider adding X-Deprecated-Fields headers to the HTTP response.

General API recommendations are to not rely on other fields other than those you specifically need.

Thanks.
