As previously announced, as of ConfD 7.3, the legacy REST API will be removed from ConfD and we want to prepare all users to migrate their use of the legacy REST API to the IETF standard RESTCONF API. The proprietary legacy REST API in ConfD pre-dates the invention of the RESTCONF standard and we have for some time been preparing ConfD users to discontinue its use.
Our “ConfD Legacy REST API to RESTCONF Migration” application note covers, at a high level, what the legacy REST and RESTCONF APIs are and what's different between the two APIs. It also includes a discussion on how to migrate usage from the legacy REST API to RESTCONF.
There will also be detailed discussion of this topic at ConfD Developer Days 2019 - don’t forget to register!

ConfD Developer Days 2019 is coming soon. This year, we have more opportunities than ever to show you how ConfD is helping deliver network programmability in more advanced ways. We have sessions on what’s new, improving application performance, debugging and don’t forget the “Ask the Expert over Lunch” events.
You can look at the sessions here to get excited and prepared for what we have to share this year. This will be a great opportunity to meet the ConfD engineering team responsible for helping transform the network programmability and automation capabilities to leverage across your network devices. Most importantly, we want you to have a fun time at this year’s event.
We are excited to announce the release of ConfD Basic 7.1.1. This release contains a major new addition of the Python API to ConfD Basic. We are also announcing the start of ConfD Basic maintenance releases as well as a new free ConfD Basic priority support program. See what's new!
As you know, we talk a lot about network programmability as a set of tools to manage and troubleshoot network element. It is no wonder there are so many articles and conversations around the many benefits of network programmability...
We introduced an experimental REST interface in 2012, which eventually became a full production interface. The IETF then took that idea of having a REST interface alongside NETCONF, and produced the RESTCONF standard which we contributed to and support.
