End-of-Support for Python 2

By Joseph Gallo posted Mon October 03, 2022 01:21 PM

As of January 1, 2020, Python 2 officially reached end-of-life.  Beginning in Q2 2023, with our SaaS and On-Premise releases of IBM QRadar SOAR and IBM Cloud Pak for Security, the ability to create Python 2 scripts, including Python 2 email scripts, will be removed. Users will be required to utilize the Python 3 Scripting Engine. Beyond our Q3 2023 releases, there will be no IBM support available for Python 2.  

Please see our previous Community Blog post, "Release Of The New Python 3 Scripting Engine", for a summary on added functionalities and changes to the user experience within the SOAR UI. For documentation on the key differences between Python 2 and Python 3, please visit our V46 Release Notes. Sample Python 3 scripts are available on our Github page, along with a ReadMe for each object type, which includes detailed documentation about the methods and fields available for each object type.
