AvaTax API 19.2 Patch Notes
- Feb 15, 2019 | Qijing Yu
This article is about the February 2019 monthly update to the AvaTax API.
Sandbox testing window
The AvaTax release schedule includes a preview period during which time the latest software is available for integration testing in the AvaTax Sandbox Environment two weeks before launching to production. If your engineering team would like a sandbox account for integration testing purposes, please contact your account manager or open a support ticket.
Query transactions by data source
If your transactions were created by extractors, before the 19.2 release, there hasn’t been a way to query back those transactions from an installation of extractors. Now you can query them back by submitting a query parameter called “dataSourceId”. By default, the result of the GetTransactionByCompany API is paginated to a maximum of 1,000 records per page.
New security header X-Content-Type-Options:nosniff
To protect from MIME based attacks, we added a new security header to our API response: X-Content-Type-Options:nosniff to instruct browsers to respect server-provided content type, instead of guessing or overriding an implicit content type. When you interpret an API response, please make sure to read content type provided by server to consume the data properly.
Other fixes and improvements
- Fixed summation error from TaxDetailsByTaxType $include option in Transaction endpoints
