What’s New?

We have updated the authentication and invitation system to improve the user experience, security, and extensibility for anyone with private applications. You may have already noticed some changes to the authentication flow for your applications if you are a Standard or Professional account holder.

As a part of these changes, we have eliminated the IFRAME and the associated RStudio branding, except for customers using custom domains where the IFRAME is still required.

For customers on free plans, we will replace the RStudio branding bar with a softer, less intrusive branding overlay.

Possible Action Required

If you have used the provided URL from for your shiny applications like most accounts, no action is needed. Your applications will simply benefit from the improvements.

If your shiny application URL begins with you must change it.

To complete the update we will SHUTDOWN all URLs on March 2, 2016. If you have publicly linked your application to or you have embedded applications on your website by directly referring to the URL, you MUST change your links to the URL you see in the dashboard for your application.

While relatively few accounts are impacted and no action is required for most users, if you have questions please contact [email protected].

Thank you all for your help and thanks for using!
