Content Management APIContent Delivery API
API cleanup for freshly created projects
December 6th, 2022

We want our APIs to be as clean as possible, but we also do not want to disrupt the work of our customers. With that in mind, we have decided to apply some changes to the API only for the websites created from January 1st, 2023 onwards. Therefore, websites created in the new year will have a slightly different API:

  • createdAt and updatedAt fields will be available on the content management API as part of the meta object of the item and item_type entities;

  • the fields createdAt and updatedAt won’t be available via GraphQL in the CDA: the existing _createdAt and _updatedAt will remain as they currently are (quick take-away: in our GraphQL API, meta fields always start with an underscore πŸ˜‰);

  • legacy fields with wrong spelling like appeareance and collection_appeareance , already marked as deprecated, won't be available anymore.

The changes will only impact new websites: nothing will change for existing ones or their duplicates. For any further info, please get in touch with our customer support.
