API version for REST admin orders

Hello,

    I have a weird problem with API versions.  According to the documentation, I should be able to use 2022-10 or 2022-07 (last 2 versions), but I get resource not found (404 error) with both.  If I use "2022-01" instead of "2022-07", it works fine.  Is there some issue with the rest API?  Or maybe with the documentation?

Hi @Tony49!

Support for .xml responses was deprecated starting in version 2022-07. You can read the change log for more details.

Why was this changed, per chance?  Not like it is hard to turn JSON into XML, which is probably what you guys were doing anyway.  Just curious.

 

Also, more importantly, will this also impact webhooks?

Never mind, https://shopify.dev/api/admin-rest/2022-10/resources/webhook#post-webhooks says "xml" is still a valid format.  Yes, I know that XML is not supported for all topics, but it is for all the ones I care about.  So change was only for Admin REST API.
