API Breaking

The following information is only applicable if you have API connections with NavVis IVION. There are changes to our NavVis Frontend and REST APIs. The main changes are the new endpoints:

  • Create Draft: Used to start working on a site that is hidden from the end user.

  • Publish Draft: Used to implement changes once they are ready and replace the original site.

  • Discard Draft: Used to discard changes applied to the draft version that are no longer required.

  • Poll for Job status: Displays information on Created, Published or Discarded operations.
