State of play of the EWP APIs

The first quarter of 2021 has seen significant work on the EWP APIs, which was carried out under the aegis of the EDSSI project. The info below summarises the current state of play and planned developments. It is important to share this information with your IT-team/technical provider so they can plan their developments accordingly. It will be updated every half a year (next update: September 2021).

Inter-institutional agreement

Version 5 of the API was published on March 5 to ensure alignment with the new official template, published on January 29 for the 2021-2027 period. Version 6 was published on March 15 to incorporate a request from the EWP community to allow changes in contacts without the need to resign the agreement. To support the whole process, the IIA Approval API version 1 should be supported as well.

No further updates of this API are envisaged for the coming 6 months; all previous versions of the IIA API will now be deprecated although all EWP nodes are free to continue supporting deprecated API versions (e.g. if their partners are still updating their systems).

Learning agreements

The learning agreement API was updated on March 10 to ensure compliance with the official template published on February 9th for the 2021-2027 period. No further updates of this API are envisaged for the coming 6 months and, similarly to the IIA API, all previous versions will be deprecated.

Nomination 

An updated specification of the nominations API (the so called Outgoing mobilities API) is provisionally scheduled for September 2021.

Transcripts of records

An updated specification of the API for Transcript of Records (Incoming TOR APIs) is provisionally scheduled in the course of 2022.
