Saying Goodbye to the GData Admin Settings API

(Cross posted from the Google Apps Developer blog

Posted by Shashank Gupta, Product Manager, Google Apps for Work and Wesley Chun, Developer Advocate, Google Apps 

 Back in 2013, we launched the Google Apps Admin SDK, and later announced as a result that several outdated Apps Admin APIs would be deprecated and shut down in April 2015. Today, we are continuing this effort of removing older, less-used functionality by announcing the deprecation of the GData Admin Settings API. Some GData API functionality will find a replacement from an Admin SDK counterpart, while other features will be discontinued. The following table summarizes which features will be retained (and where to access replacement functionality) and which won’t:

Admin Settings API
Endpoint
Post-Deprecation Replacement (if any)
no replacement / discontinued
no replacement / discontinued
no replacement / discontinued
no replacement / discontinued
no replacement / discontinued
All endpoints
no replacement / discontinued
All endpoints
no replacement / discontinued
All endpoints
replacement API coming soon
All endpoints
no replacement / discontinued

To summarize, the GData Admin Settings API is being deprecated today and will remain operational for one year to give developers time to migrate. This means that on August 16, 2017, this deprecated API will be shut down. At that time, all calls to the API and any features in your applications that depend on it will no longer work. Please migrate as soon as possible.

Note: all launches are applicable to all Google Apps editions unless otherwise noted
