Ativo REST API endpoints and models are versioned

REST endpoints version

The current REST API is version 1, and is in beta.

Data model version

Any script using the API should be cautious and check for data model version changes.

Ativo Programs for Jira evolves continuously. Adding new functionalities causes the configuration objects evolve as well.

The current data model version is 7.

Non-breaking changes are added on a continuous basis. This typically means new data fields or data objects are created. A non-breaking data model change will not cause the version to change.

Breaking changes are added on a regular basis. This typically means:

  • The format of a field changes

  • A field is renamed

  • A field is removed

The data model version is increased when a breaking change is released.

Data model REST endpoint

Use the following REST endpoint (for Jira cloud) to check if the data model version still corresponds with the model version your script is supporting.

Version header

The data model version is added as a X-API-Model-Version header to any API response. Example:

HTTP/1.1 200 
X-API-Model-Version: 7
