API Version History

The Rigor Optimization API uses version strings in the request URL to preserve backward compatibility. All methods follow the following URL structure:

(GET | POST | PUT | DELETE) https://optimization-api.rigor.com/{version}/{Path}

For example:

GET https://optimization-api.rigor.com/v2/Tests

New versions will be introduced only if breaking changes are necessary, otherwise revisions to existing versions will be published below. While we will endeavor to minimize breaking changes, we must also remain committed to keeping the API easy to use and powerful in the future. Rest assured legacy versions, if discontinued, will not be done so without ample warning.
