Today we're releasing v2.6 of the DCM/DFA Reporting and Trafficking API. This release includes a number of highly anticipated features, such as: We've also improved click-through URL management for Display creatives, expanded custom floodlight variable support, and much more. See our release notes for full details.

Retiring legacy creative types

Beginning with this release, the DCM API no longer supports creating legacy HTML5 Banner and Image creatives. As previously announced, these legacy types have been replaced by the new streamlined Display creative.

Additionally, the ability to upload Flash assets into DCM was disabled back in June. Accordingly, this functionality is also being removed from the API beginning with this release. Previous API versions will continue to support uploading Flash assets until their respective sunset dates, but users are strongly encouraged to begin transitioning to HTML5 now.

Deprecation and sunset reminder

In accordance with our deprecation schedule, this release marks the beginning of the deprecation period for v2.5, which will sunset on February 28th, 2017. After this date, any requests made against v2.5 will begin returning errors.

As a reminder, API v2.3 will be sunset on August 31st, 2016. To avoid an interruption in service, all users are required to migrate off of this version by the sunset date.
