Field API: Enforced Route Verbs

BIM 360 Field update went out today. It includes a change that potentially affects API users. As a part of pre-work for future framework update for Field, Field API’s route methods (i.e., POST, GET, PUT, etc.) used in the API calls are made strict. If you are NOT using the correct verb (i.e., the verb indicated in the documentation), you will get an 404 error. If you are using correct ones, you will not see any difference.

This made me think that we want to have a better communication channel for an update like this. The product team recognizes that, too. I did post a note to the BIM 360 API forum immediately after I heard about it. This is not just for Field. The same applies to other API, too. We will discuss with the product team to make sure we get advanced notice for any changes that have potential to break your apps in future.
