ORCID is releasing a command-line tool that can be used to translate ORCID XML into ORCID JSON and vica-versa. This is intended to help when working with S3 data files, and can process v2.0, v2.1 and v3.0rc1 formatted files.
API News & Updates
On August 1 we will be turning off the 1.2 version of the API for member integrations.
Our Community team has contacted all members that we know are still using version 1.2 to make sure they plan to update to 2.0/2.1 before this deadline or have requested an extension. If you are still using version 1.2 on the member API, or are unsure if you are, and have not been in contact with the ORCID Community team, please reach out to them ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will provide more information about how to request a one-month extension to complete your upgrade.
From February 1, 2018: the default version used for API calls will move from version 1.2 to 2.0
This change will only affect calls that do not specify the version. As we always encourage all clients to specify a version, we hope this change will not cause any problems. If your integration does not currently specify a version you can add ‘v1.2’ to your calls - but you will still need to complete the upgrade to version 2.0 or 2.1 ASAP.
