2017 - September Newsletter

Important Announcements

Move to api.familysearch.org before December

Starting December 5, 2017, all API resources will be redirected to https://api.familysearch.org/platform/*. The api.familysearch.org domain is now available for production use. We encourage you to move your application to the new domain as quickly as possible. If your application does not automatically follow redirects or make use of discovery resources your application will likely break. Please be prepared to make that change before the December code release.

Upcoming December Changes

Starting December 5, 2017, all API resources will be redirected to https://api.familysearch.org/platform/*. The api.familysearch.org domain is now available for production use. We encourage you to move your application to the new domain as quickly as possible. If your application does not automatically follow redirects or make use of discovery resources your application will likely break. Please be prepared to make that change before the December code release.

Please also note that we will be making some changes to the authentication APIs that may require some changes on your end to start testing. These changes will only be made in the Integration and Beta references. We will make further announcements in the upcoming newsletters regarding what if anything will be required to modify for your production code.

For more information on the FamilySearch API change process, please see the API Evolution Guide.
