What is the difference between version 4.0 and 4.1 ?
Version 4.1 is more secure in a way, that it stores the API key in the header rather than the URL.
What changes need to be done in order to switch from 4.0 to 4.1 ?
There are mainly 3 changes that are required as listed below,
- Ask your CSM or write to our support asking to change your API version from 4.0 to 4.1
- Change in the URL
The URL's will contain additional text "/v4.1/". All the support articles have already been updated to refer to v4.1
- Change in Authentication parameter
The Authentication parameter has to be passed in Header rather than the URL as below.
curl -X GET -H "Authorization: api_key <api_key>" "https://api.eu.customergauge.com/v4.1/transactions/response.json?days=1"
You can browse the API 4.1 folder for list of available APIs.
