New "api_product_list_json" property has been added

Post by EPO / OPS Support » Fri Apr 21, 2017 6:46 am

OPS uses a cloud based API management solution to protect its backend APIs. A recent change by the vendor has modified the response behaviour of the OAuth Access Token fetch for OPS.

A new api_product_list_json property in the response has been added, for example:

Code: Select all

"api_product_list_json" : ["Product1", "Product2", "Product3"]
This change should be invisible to robustly written client software. It is possible however that your OPS client is unable to consume this change and consequently you will find that you are no longer able to obtain access tokens.

If this occurs, please be aware that such changes are not considered part of the API contract, and it is the responsibility of the client code to absorb minor decorations to the response when introduced. With that said, we apologies for any unexpected consequences of this change, and hope you understand the difficulty we would have to notify you of such changes in future.
