How to Deprecate a Pack

There are two flags available that you use in pack.rb to deprecate a specific pack version:

ignore true|false
enabled true|false


The ignore flag is used before loading of the pack. If it is set to true, the pack will not be re-loaded and therefore updated in OneOps. However a currently loaded pack will not be removed and therefore remain dormant in place.


The enabled flag defines the visibility of pack during the creation of a platform. If it is set to false, the pack will not be visible to a user when creating a platform.

The pack can however still be used to create a platform with the API even when this flag is set to false.

Note: If an existing environment uses a deprecated pack, it will not be affected and continue to function.
