A new ISAN System has been released in January 2020, involving a complete change of the web interface, the servers and the system architecture. The ISAN API has not been changed so far, instead, it was unplugged from the old system and plugged on the new system.
However, in existing applications, the API URL need to be updated to https://api.isan.org/api/ .
Since the ISAN metadata schema has been updated in the new ISAN System, there are compatibility issues with some API services: Major issues are on the ISAN version schema and Serial Headers (renamed Series record).
ISAN-IA is currently designing a new major version of the ISAN API in phase with the new ISAN system. With the support of concerned API users and until the new API is released, some limitations have been set on the ISAN API:
- No VersionType returned for version lookups: (only the StatusType is returned)
- The Matching Service and Update Service have been disabled
The Search and Lookup and work registration services are operational!
