May News Recap


We don’t want you to miss any of this month’s updates. Below you’ll find a full recap of this month's major announcements, new code samples, documentation updates, events, and more.


Register for Autodesk DevCon

Autodesk DevCon is back....and it’s on a boat. Join us September 6-7 in San Francisco, CA for two amazing days. You heard that right. The conference that brings together software developers building with Autodesk Platform Services is back. And this time we're on a boat. All aboard the historic Klamath Ferry in San Francisco, CA. We will host only 200 developers that want to learn about the latest APIs and SDK releases you can use to build applications and solutions with your Design and Make Data. Register now.

 ACC Issues Status UI Change

As you might have received a notification, upcoming update release for Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC) includes changes to Issues statues in UI. Although no changes are made to the API endpoints themselves, the change in behavior in the UI may potentially have an effect to your application semantically depending on the context of your application. So we are writing here as well. The next update is expected later this month. It will be announced through the Product News section of Construction blog. This does not affect Issues in BIM 360. Learn more.

Parameters API (beta) Update

Does your application use Parameters Service Beta API? Or are you learning the API? Autodesk has released a new version to enhance the current Parameters Service API on May 12th as announced on the Parameters API beta forum. Read more.

Data Exchange (DX) GraphQL API alignment with AEC Data Model API

As you saw in our last update for Autodesk Platform Services (APS, formerly Forge) Data Initiatives, you know that we recently introduced Data Exchange GraphQL APIs (see post here) in public beta. As part of our goal to bring consistency and standardization of data representation in the industry, we are aligning the Data Exchange GraphQL API with the AEC Data Model. Learn more.

Retiring BIM 360 Issues (v1) Endpoints

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 July 5th, 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.
