Version 2.20 (2017-12-14)

Important notices

Changes to the APIs due to upgrade of Elasticsearch

As previously announced, since release 2.18 MIC has support for Elasticsearch versions 2.3 and 5.5. During an interim period intended to facilitate migration to Elasticsearch 5.5, the version used for each individual Customer account can be configured. The upgrade will impact the Observation API, Thing API and Event API since these APIs allow developers to query Elasticsearch directly, and there are differences in the Elasticsearch query syntax between the two versions. Depending on how these APIs are used, updated queries might be required in bespoke applications. If you are using the Elasticsearch query capability in the any of these APIs, you are kindly requested to contact Telenor Connexion for joint establishment of a migration plan.
