Preparing for Exchange Web Services API Deprecations in Exchange

Upcoming API Deprecations in Exchange Web Services for Exchange Online
Introduction
In this blog, we will discuss the upcoming API deprecations in Exchange Web Services (EWS) for Exchange Online. As a cloud architect, it’s important to be aware of changes to the APIs and services you use, so that you can adjust your plans and applications appropriately. As Microsoft continues to innovate, we sometimes have to make changes to our APIs in order to improve the user experience and simplify the development process.

API Deprecations
Microsoft will be deprecating the following APIs in Exchange Online:

* EWS Managed API 1.0 and 1.2
* EWS Impersonation
* EWS Notification subscriptions
* EWS Autodiscover
* EWS Availability Service
* EWS Unified Messaging Service

Impact on Exchange Online
The deprecation of these APIs has several implications for Exchange Online. First and foremost, any applications that rely on these APIs will need to be updated to use the latest versions of the APIs or risk no longer functioning properly. Additionally, the deprecation of these APIs means that some features and functionality may no longer be available. For example, the EWS Impersonation API was used to access mailbox content on behalf of the user, and this functionality will no longer be available once the API deprecation is complete.

Updates to Applications and Code
As a cloud architect, it’s important to ensure that any applications and code that use the deprecated APIs are updated to use the latest versions of the APIs. Microsoft provides guidance and best practices for updating applications and code to mitigate the impact of the API deprecation. Specifically, Microsoft recommends that developers take the following steps:

* Identify applications and code that rely on the deprecated APIs
* Update the applications and code to use the latest versions of the APIs
* Test the updated applications and code to ensure that they are functioning properly
* Deploy the updated applications and code

Conclusion
In this blog, we discussed the upcoming API deprecations in Exchange Online. We also discussed the implications of the API deprecations and how cloud architects can ensure that their applications and code are updated to use the latest versions of the APIs. By following the steps outlined in this blog, cloud architects can ensure that their applications and code are functioning properly and are able to take advantage of the latest innovations in Exchange Online.
