Since the New Commerce Experience (NCE) license-based product SKUs were released on January 10th, 2022, Microsoft has enabled various migration capabilities to help partners transition from traditional license-based subscriptions to the new commerce SKUs more easily. From March 2022, most commercial license-based product SKUs were made only available in NCE, and many of the traditional license-based offers have been deprecated, meaning they are no longer purchasable and only available via New Commerce and that means many licenses will need to be migrated to a new offer.
Partners can see these deprecated legacy offers in the old price lists flagged as "DEPR," indicating they are only available in New Commerce. Although partners with DEPR legacy offers cannot purchase new subscriptions, their existing subscriptions will continue to function and renew.
To find out when a subscription renews, partners will need to verify the renewal date and process in advance.
Partners can see all price lists for both legacy and new commerce license-based services in the pricing and offers page in Partner Center, and they need to be logged into Partner Center to access these pricing files.
Since March 2022, functional was made available in the APIs to assist mapping between traditional (legacy) and new commerce product SKUs in the legacy offer matrix NCE Mapping tab. With these capabilities, partners can easily migrate their legacy subscriptions to New Commerce without hassle.
