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.

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.
