On March 30th, 2018 IBM has announced the deprecation of IBM Single Sign-On service. The service will remain available for provisioning for 30 days after which it will be removed from the IBM Cloud Catalog. Existing instances of the service will continue to be operational and supported for 12 month. During this time you need to convert your applications to use newly provisioned instances of IBM Cloud App ID service. The goal of this blog is to guide you through the application conversion process.
