When will the Paper API be retired?

When will the Paper API be retired?

While diagnosing an issue with the Paper API this past weekend, I stumbled across this article from Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/lp/developers/reference/paper-migration-guide

 

However it doesn't seem like my legacy Paper documents exist within the extant Dropbox file system, at least according to my files/list_folder (recursive = true) call. I would like to port over to using the standard API as soon as possible to avoid long-term issues with my integrations, but first I wanted to check if the plan is indeed to retire the Paper API in September and, if so, what the timeline is expected to be for legacy Paper docs over.

 

Thank you!

The current plan is to retire the Paper API endpoints in September of this year, per the migration guide. Of course, if anything changes, we'll make an announcement. 

 

Existing accounts may not have been themselves migrated yet, and I don't have a timeline to share for that, but if you want to test the new style, you can register a new account (for free) and use that to test your implementation.
