Update your Azure Media Services REST API and SDKs to v3 by 29 February 2024

Published date: February 23, 2021

Because version 3 of Azure Media Services REST API and client SDKs for .NET and Java offers more capabilities than version 2, we’re retiring version 2 of the Azure Media Services REST API and client SDKs for .NET and Java. We encourage you to make the switch sooner to gain the richer benefits of version 3 of Azure Media Services REST API and client SDKs for .NET and Java. Version 3 provides: 

  • 24x7 live event support. 
  • ARM REST APIs, client SDKs for .NET core, Node.js, Python, Java, Go and Ruby. 
  • Customer managed keys, trusted storage integration, private link support, and more

Action required 

To minimize disruption to your workloads, review the migration guide to transition your code from the version 2 to version 3 API and SDK before 29 February 2024. 

After 29 February 2024, Azure Media Services will no longer accept traffic on the version 2 REST API, the ARM account management API version 2015-10-01, or from the version 2 .NET client SDKs. This includes any 3rd party open-source client SDKS that may call the version 2 API.
