The following attributes are subject to change:
user#authentication-mode will be dropped
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.
