Spring cleaning at zanox: EOL for Data API 2009 and 2010

Spring is somewhat late in Germany - our HQ in Berlin is still covered in snow - but our DevOps are nevertheless in an energizing cleaning mood. Three years ago, zanox quietly launched an open beta of the Data API - an API which allows you to download click, lead and sale exports of the last 30 days. The 2009 version was extended by the 2010 and 2011 versions, which, among other small improvements, added custom reports and the REST interface respectively. We are currently running all three versions together. After the roll-out of the 2011 version, traffic on previous versions started reducing and as of today, the absolute majority of our customers have switched to the latest version.

Today we are announcing shutoff of the 2009 and 2010 Data API versions. On the 8th of April, we will be switching the default Data API endpoint https://data.zanox.com/soap and the default WSDL https://data.zanox.com/wsdl over to the 2011 version. The 2009 and 2010 endpoints and WSDLs will remain available under their fully-qualified URLs for one more week:

2009: WSDL https://data.zanox.com/wsdl/2009-11-01, Endpoint https://data.zanox.com/soap/2009-11-01 
2010: WSDL https://data.zanox.com/wsdl/2010-08-12, Endpoint https://data.zanox.com/soap/2010-08-12

The fully-qualified WSDL and endpoint URLs for the latest version will not change.

2011: WSDL https://data.zanox.com/wsdl/2011-05-01, Endpoint https://data.zanox.com/soap/2011-05-01

On April 15, the 2009 and 2010 versions of Data API will be taken offline.

If you are one of the few, still using the 2009 or 2010 versions, you will have to migrate your client to use the latest version. The good news is that differences between versions are minor (WSDL cleanup and some new optional parameters), so migration should be quick and painless. For full Data API 2011 documentation please visit our wiki. Documentation contains a complete list of interface changes from 2009 to 2011 version, which is a good starting point for migration. If you need the Data API 2009 documentation for comparison, you can find it here.
