Deprecated Database Engine features in SQL Server 2017

Applies to: SQL Server 2017 (14.x) and later

This article describes the deprecated SQL Server Database Engine features that are still available in SQL Server 2017 (14.x). Deprecated features shouldn't be used in new applications.

When a feature is marked deprecated, it means:

  • The feature is in maintenance mode only. No new changes will be done, including those related to addressing inter-operability with new features.
  • We strive not to remove a deprecated feature from future releases to make upgrades easier. However, under rare situations, we may choose to permanently discontinue (remove) the feature from SQL Server if it limits future innovations.
  • For new development work, don't use deprecated features. For existing applications, plan to modify applications that currently use these features as soon as possible.

You can monitor the use of deprecated features by using the SQL Server Deprecated Features Object performance counter and trace events. For more information, see Use SQL Server Objects.

The values of these counters are also available by executing the following statement:

SELECT * FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE object_name = 'SQLServer:Deprecated Features';

Note

This list is identical to the SQL Server 2016 (13.x) list. There are no new deprecated or discontinued Database Engine features announced for SQL Server 2017 (14.x).

Features deprecated in the next version of SQL Server

The following SQL Server Database Engine features won't be supported in a future version of SQL Server. Don't use these features in new development work, and modify applications that currently use these features as soon as possible. The Feature name value appears in trace events as the ObjectName and in performance counters and sys.dm_os_performance_counters as the instance name. The Feature ID value appears in trace events as the ObjectId.

Deprecated feature Replacement Feature name
DB-Library

Embedded SQL for C
Although the Database Engine still supports connections from existing applications that use the DB-Library and Embedded SQL APIs, it doesn't include the files or documentation required to do programming work on applications that use these APIs. A future version of the SQL Server Database Engine drops support for connections from DB-Library or Embedded SQL applications. Don't use DB-Library or Embedded SQL to develop new applications. Remove any dependencies on either DB-Library or Embedded SQL when you are modifying existing applications. Instead of these APIs, use the SQLClient namespace or an API such as ODBC. SQL Server 2019 (15.x) doesn't include the DB-Library DLL required to run these applications. To run DB-Library or Embedded SQL applications, you must have available the DB-Library DLL from SQL Server version 6.5, SQL Server 7.0, or SQL Server 2000 (8.x). None

Note

The cookie OUTPUT parameter for sp_setapprole is currently documented as varbinary(8000) which is the correct maximum length. However the current implementation returns varbinary(50). If developers have allocated varbinary(50) the application might require changes if the cookie return size increases in a future release. Though not a deprecation issue this is mentioned in this topic because the application adjustments are similar. For more information, see sp_setapprole (Transact-SQL).
