API v1.0 and API v2 Differences

If you have applications or scripts that use first generation Cloud Servers API v1.0, you must revise them to use the next generation Cloud Servers API v2. Though many API v1.0 operations have the same names as API v2 operations, the following elements have changed in several API operations:

  • Normal and error response codes

  • URI parameters

  • State transitions

  • Request body attributes

  • Response body fields

The Next Generation Cloud Servers Developer Guide describes API v2 operations and provides JSON and XML request and response examples.
