This documentation provides a summary overview of the major improvements, updates, fixes, and changes made in the Ed-Fi ODS / API v2.5. A comprehensive listing of all changes is documented in the Release Notes section. 

Improvements & Enhancements

This section briefly describes new features and enhancements built into the ODS / API v2.5 and provides links to additional documentation.

ODS / API v2.5 introduces changes to the assessment domain and Assessment API. These changes are "breaking" changes to the API surface from previous versions, but changes are limited to assessment domain and are mostly around identity (key) issues in the assessment domain. Details on the exact changes can be found at Ed-Fi Data Standard v2.2.  

Things to consider while upgrading to ODS / API v2.5. This update from v2.4:

  • Contains no breaking changes outside of the assessment domain.
  • Makes it possible to directly source assessment data from vendors via the API.
  • Makes it necessary to plan for data migration if an existing ODS contains assessment data.
  • Means that existing customized assessment loaders may have to be updated to load data to a new model.
  • Existing implementations may need to adjust their security configuration to match the new list of Managed Descriptors. See Updating Managed Descriptors for Previous Versions for details.

Bug Fixes

This release also includes a number of bug fixes contributed by the Ed-Fi Alliance and implementers. Details are cataloged in the Release Notes.
