Any changes to REST API? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are migrating our code base from Bing Maps AJAX v7 to v8.

    Are there any changes to the REST services? We are using the below url to search for a location. Does it need to be pointed to a different url?

    Thanks

  • There has been no changes to the REST services, other than regular incremental updates.

    Note that there is no need to use this service when using V7 or V8 as both have a search module which wraps the service for you and automatically uses sessions keys to ensure that the call to this service is non-billable.

  • Yep, I have been reading looking into the search module as well. WE are looking into replacing the REST services with the module. 

    Thanks for the quick reply.
