This August we announced the general availability of our new Gnip 2.0 APIs and laid out the plan to sunset all Gnip 1.0 endpoints on December 1, 2016.
We’re happy to report that many Gnip customer are now using the 2.0 endpoints, and enjoying the enhancements that come with them.
The end-of-the-road for Gnip 1.0
The time has come to say goodbye to Gnip 1.0. All Gnip 1.0 APIs will be disabled on December 1, 2016, a hard deadline that is quickly approaching.
In order to avoid disruption to your data stream, it’s important to get started with your migration today.
Migration should be straightforward—but depending on your integration, it may take some time. To make the process as painless as possible, we’ve built support documentation and migration guides for all Gnip 1.0 products.
If you’re a PowerTrack customer, we’ve made the transition easy with a Rules Migrator that identifies which of your 1.0 rules are 2.0 compatible, flags rules that need modifications, performs translations when possible, and identifies rules that are incompatible.
Thanks for the excellent rule migrator. It was a huge help in estimating the amount of effort the migration would take.Alex WaitEngineer at Chirpify
Follow these steps to start and complete your migration:
- Send an email to email@example.com to set up your 2.0 endpoints.
- Update your system to integrate with Gnip 2.0 as detailed in each migration guide. In most cases, this will include changing your URL endpoints, migrating your rules/queries, and evaluating the new operators and enrichment metadata.
- Contact firstname.lastname@example.org when your migration is complete so we can flip your billable usage to the 2.0 version and remove the 1.0 endpoints.
We have dedicated resources including our support team, product team, and your account manager ready to help you with the migration via email@example.com. The sooner you begin, the more time you’ll have with these folks who can help you out.
Bonus: Start your migration by the end of this week (and complete it within 30 days) — and we’ll send you two of our coveted Twitter hoodies!
