CBAPI SDK to Carbon Black Cloud Python SDK (CBC SDK) Migration

APIs used by CBAPI will be deactivated on July 31, 2024.

The Carbon Black Cloud portion of CBAPI has moved to Carbon Black Cloud Python SDK on GitHub. All development and bug fixes for Carbon Black Cloud will be made there. Carbon Black EDR and App Control will remain supported in CBAPI.


This guide will help you migrate from CBAPI to the Carbon Black Cloud Python SDK.

This is necessary to take advantage of new functionality in Carbon Black Cloud and also to ensure that functionality is not lost from your integrations when APIs are deactivated in July 2024.
