Graceful shutdown of API V1

Explorer | Level 4

This may seem like an obvious thing, but I thought it wise to check. Can you please just confirm that when API V1 is turned off on June 28th that any existing apps which are still running against this API will fail gracefully.

 

So no crashes and no odd behaviour. I would expect it to work the same (to the user) as if there were on internet connection, so silent background failures. This is a question which applies to the iOS and Android SDKs.

Hi Mark, per the migration guide, when API v1 is retired in June 2017, any further API v1 calls will fail with a 400 error with the body:

 

{"error": "v1_retired"}

 

That is similar to other errors, and would be translated into error types in the SDKs.

 

We can't promise from our side what various third party apps would do exactly with this error though, as that depends on the general error handling programmed into each app.

Thanks, I missed that bit at the end of the guide when I read it before.
