BIM 360 Issues (v1) API - New Deprecation Date

Does your application use BIM 360 Issues (v1) API? Autodesk plans to retire eleven (11) BIM 360 Issues (v1) API endpoints. Recently we have released the version 2 of BIM 360 Issues APIAction required: If you are using any of the eleven (11) Issues (v1) API endpoints with BIM 360, please migrate to Issues (v2) API by August 15th, 2023, at which point the Issues (v1) API endpoints will be deprecated and stop functioning. Failure to migrate in a timely manner will result in breaking the workflow in your application. Read this blog for more details.
