I was recently troubleshooting a customer-reported issue related to a SUBSCRIBER_ALIAS event and I ran across this post stating that the SUBSCRIBER_ALIAS event had been deprecated and has not been sent “for awhile now.”
However, that reply was dated 25 February 2022, and the SUBSCRIBER_ALIAS event I was troubleshooting was received much more recently, on 2 June 2022. So apparently SUBSCRIBER_ALIAS events *are* still being sent?
I’m currently trying to update our handling of SUBSCRIBER_ALIAS events to account for a change to “original_app_user_id” in the same event -- something we had not accounted for (and the root cause of this customer reported issue.)
But the aforementioned post, and the Webhooks documentation which now lists SUBSCRIBER_ALIAS as deprecated has me wondering if I should be handling an entirely different event?
Is there any documentation that explains how the account-sharing functionality that was enabled by the SUBSCRIBER_ALIAS event is being replaced, now that the event is deprecated? Is there a migration guide? Or is that functionality going away entirely?
