Table.1 Klarna support Table
Deprecation within Klarna’s API’s can be split into two different types; API versions and API calls. An API version is determined by breaking changes within the API and API Calls is determined by functionalities for communication towards Klarna.
Deprecation of API versions
Full support is always given to the latest API version. If a new API version is released by Klarna, the previous version with full support will be legacy. The old legacy version will be deprecated. A Deprecated version will be removed from Klarna’s system within a timeframe set by Klarna, minimum of 6 months. Affected users will be informed.
Deprecation of API calls
Klarna can from time to time deprecate specific calls from existing API versions and may replace them with newer and better API calls. When a call has been set as Legacy, the new call replacing is hereinafter treated as Full Support and shall be used with all new integrations towards Klarna. A Deprecated call will be removed from Klarna’s system within a timeframe set by Klarna, minimum of 6 months. Affected users will be informed.
Full support is always given to the most recent version and the programming language version that the SDK is developed for. If a new minor version is released by Klarna, the previous version with full support will be legacy. The old legacy version will be dropped down to deprecated. A Deprecated library will be supported, during a limited timeframe set by Klarna, minimum of 6 months. Affected users will be informed.
Full support is always given to the most recent official Klarna module version and platform versions that the particular module is developed for. If a new platform version makes it impossible for the module to support the new and the old version, a new module with Full support will be developed. The old Legacy version will be dropped down to Deprecated. A Deprecated module will be supported, according to table 1, during a limited timeframe set by Klarna, minimum of 6 months.
