Deprecations

A list of active and completed deprecations

Active deprecations

This section lists all products and features which are currently in a deprecation period.

Export V1

Starting in April 2024, we will begin sunsetting Export V1 in the UI and SDK on a rolling basis. We encourage you to start transitioning your export workflows to Export V2.

The Export V1 and Export V2 workflows may be used in tandem until Export V1 is sunsetted for your tier.

Custom editor

On June 30, 2024, we are sunsetting the custom editor for all customers. If you have custom editor projects, you will be able to label data and export labels from those projects until June 30, 2024. After that, you cannot access custom editor projects and associated data.

We encourage you to export the data from your custom editor projects and move your labeling workflows to one of our native editors before June 30, 2024. Please reach out to our support team with any questions or concerns.


Completed deprecations

This section lists all products and features which have been decommissioned. These products and features are no longer available.

Dropdown schema

Dropdown is a deprecated classification type (the other classification types are radio, checklist, and free-form text). Labelbox implemented a UI solution that provides a dropdown view for radio and checklist classifications. Therefore, we removed the capability to add the dropdown schema to new ontologies.

We recommend using radio or checklist classifications and selecting the dropdown toggle instead (see image below).

Labels tab

Prior to the rollout of the Data Rows tab, the Labels tab was a dashboard view in Annotate. The Labels tab was replaced by the Data Rows tab as part of the shift to our new data row-centric paradigm.

Effective August 2023, no more customers are using the Labels tab.

Review step

Prior to the rollout of Workflows, the review step was the mechanism for reviewing labels in Annotate. The review step was replaced by Workflows in order to offer more flexibility in customizing the review flow for labeling tasks.

Effective August 2023, no more customers are using the Review step.

Dataset-based queueing

Prior to the rollout of batch-based queueing, the only way to send data rows to a labeling project was by sending the entire dataset. This was replaced by batch-based queueing to enable customers to send a curated subset of data rows across multiple data rows to a labeling project.

Effective August 2023, no more customers are using dataset-based queueing.

On-prem

At the end of 2022, Labelbox decided to sunset our on-premise offering. All customers are encouraged to use our SaaS product instead.

As of August 2023, no more customers are using the Labelbox on-prem offering.

Superpixel

In 2023, Labelbox released the auto-segment tool, which replaced the Superpixel feature. Auto-segment is embedded into the segmentation mask tool. You can use it to auto-generate segmentation masks.

As of January 2023, no more customers are using the Superpixel feature.
