API Changelog (Breaking Changes)

This API changelog is experimental and we would love feedback on its usefulness. Its primary purpose is to inform API developers of any breaking changes. (We try not ship any backward incompatible changes, but it happens.) To see a list of new APIs and backward-compatible changes to existing API, please see each version’s release notes at https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/releases




  • /api/access/datafile: When a null or invalid API token is provided to download a public (non-restricted) file with this API call, it will result on a 401 error response. Previously, the download was allowed (200 response). Please note that we noticed this change sometime between 5.9 and 6.0. If you can help us pinpoint the exact version (or commit!), please get in touch. See Data Access API.
