What are the key differences between the Nexar API and the Nexar Legacy API?

Modified on Fri, 03 Feb 2023 at 02:48 PM

Since the Nexar Legacy API (formerly the Octopart APIv4) is already a GraphQL API, transitioning to the Nexar API is straight forward. There are two key differences:

  1. Authentication is achieved using our the secure and versatile OAuth2 Nexar identity servers.  For more information about accessing the API securely see this guide.

  2. Queries and types are changed to align to Nexar standards, for example the Nexar Legacy API multi_match query becomes supMultiMatch in Nexar.

We encourage existing Nexar Legacy API users to sign up for Nexar API and explore the the data model.
