Deprecation (closing) of e-conomic SOAP API
The e-conomic SOAP API has been around for many years, and has been in a feature freeze state since 2018. It has only received minor security related updates.
With the maturity of our existing REST API and the launch of our new OpenAPI last year, we’ve set sail for the final journey of SOAP which will finally be deprecated (closed) in 2023.
It is going to be a gradual process, and we started 22nd of December 2022.
We will continuously update our SOAP deprecation status page with information on upcoming and past deprecations.
Over the course of 2023 we’ll be deprecating (closing) more methods, and we will announce the deprecations with a notice of 90 days.
We will do our best to ensure that this happens with as little disruption for our customers and that’s why we need your help.
The first batch of methods that were deprecated (closed) were the ones we had identified as being used the least on SOAP, and which have alternatives available on our other API’s. We also deprecated a few endpoints that no longer have any practical use.
On these pages, we will continuously update the list on methods to be deprecated. Please make sure to switch to one of our other API’s - as the process is already in progress and some of the functionality is only available there.
Functionality related to the Projects module is already fully supported on our newest OpenAPI, Subscriptions will be available early Q3, and the remaining items will follow.
While some functionality from SOAP may have existing alternatives on REST, all new functionality and extensions will only be exposed on our OpenAPI platform.
To ease the migration, our API support will be continuously maintaining our endpoint matching list with all SOAP methods and their equivalent implementation on our other API's as they're becoming available, the tool can be found here: https://soap-deprecation-info-service.e-conomic.com/
Please note that any methods that have been or are scheduled to be deprecated (closed), will become permanently unavailable to use in our SOAP API for all new and existing consumers. At the end of the year the e-conomic SOAP API will be shut down.
