    Does Delphix document changes to the API?

    I'm looking at the following link:

    http://docs.delphix.com/display/DOCS41/API+Version+Information


    Other than diffing the (very long) JSON document describing the API schema, there doesn't seem to be a way to determine changes to calls, parameters or otherwise.

    For example,  between Delphix 4.0 to 4.1, the query for /resources/json/database/$reference/connectionInfchanged from requiring a POST method to a GET method. I only discovered this after looking through my app's error logs when the app was broken.

    The GET method makes more sense since the connectionInfo query doesn't take any parameters, but the documentation doesn't reflect this... it actually still says that the call requires a POST.

    Thank you for your suggestion! A request for enhancement for the changelog has been filed with engineering and a bug has been filed for the incorrect 4.1 documentation.

    Thanks for the quick follow up Henrik... I  appreciate it. Just discovered the Delphix community... seems like a great place to get answers :)

    Quick follow up from my end -- the documentation is correct for the GET change... I just had to do a hard refresh in my browser. It was caching the old docs.

    Please remove that bug report for the 4.1 documentation... it was just a caching error on my end.
