API Upgrades

Upgrading API Versions

Please refer to our versioning policy to understand what we consider a breaking change.

To switch to a different version of the Rutter API, one needs to specify the X-Rutter-Version header with a valid version (e.g., 2024-04-30).

Note for our older customers: our new root URL is https://production.rutterapi.com/versioned and ends with /versioned. If you are not using this, you are likely still using our legacy root URL: https://production.rutterapi.com. The legacy root URL doesn't support the X-Rutter-Version header, as it only supports our first API version: is identical to version 2023-02-07. Note that switching to the new root URL with a version of 2023-02-07 from the legacy root URL should be completely safe.

When you are ready to upgrade API versions, you can begin by:

  1. Checking the changelog below for the breaking changes introduced by the new version.
  2. Handle the changes in request and response bodies and update the X-Rutter-Version request header.

If you are subscribed to Rutter webhooks, you can upgrade the version of your webhook payloads by

  1. Checking the changelog below for the breaking changes introduced by the new version.
  2. Update your webhook code to handle both the old and new version of each object.
  3. In the Rutter Dashboard, update the version of your webhook payloads sent to your Webhook URL.

We recommend that you test your webhook code first by deploying a separate test handler and registering that to subscribe to the new version of webhooks in the Rutter Dashboard.

Breaking Changes: unstable

This is the version of Rutter's API that ships a set of breaking changes on top of our latest stable API. It is not recommended for general use until we release a new stable version. Think of it as an experimental version that you can use to test new features and provide feedback.

Note that changes in response objects affect the responses of GET, POST, and PATCH endpoints.
