API v4 Technical Documentation
This section documents the technical specifications of the Connective eSignatures API version 4.
API v4 uses more resource based routes compared to API v3, which allows a flexible creation and management of the different resources, and an easier implementation of new features.
API v3 is still available for use, but is considered deprecated. This means no new functionality will be added to API v3 and the v3 routes will be removed once v5 will be released.
API v3 routes can still be used in combination with v4 routes, however. In some cases it is even required: the audits proofs feature, the queueing mechanism and several miscellaneous services (such as retrieving the enabled signing types, the enabled languages, the themes and version, etc.) still use v3 routes and don't have a v4 equivalent yet.
Note however, that it is strongly recommended to use API v4 as starting point of any new integration or update.
Tip: the API v4 Technical Documentation is also available as Postman API documentation project on https://apidocs.connective.eu.
