With the release of Line Test API v2.0, Line Test API v1.0 is now deprecated.

Line Test API v2 is now available giving access to enriched ONT information.


What's happening

With the release of Line Test API v2.0, we are deprecating Line Test API v1.0. This means that onboarding for v1.0 will no longer be available and RSPs taking up the Line Test API will be onboarded to v2.0. Any future development will only go into v2.0.

Line Test API v1.0 will remain available for use and will be supported until it is officially decommissioned in 12 months (unless it is no longer in use, in which case we will provide 20 days’ notice before decommissioning).

If you are currently using v1.0 then it should only require a few small changes to adapt to v2.0 for the same functionality. 


Migrating from Line Test API v1.0 to v2.0

Apart from different end points between Line Test API v1 and v2, there are very small payload changes as noted in the table below:

Line Test API v1 payload Line Test API v2 payload
"ont": {
      "id": "NPE-POLT05:1-1-4-8-3",
      "ports": "4",
      "tlc": "101593704",
      "type": "4+2 Standard",
      "ontSerialNumber": "ALCL45781245"
 "ont": {
      "id": "NPE-POLT05:1-1-4-8-3",
      "ports": "4",
      "ataPorts": "1",
      "mode": "Standard"
      "model": "G-140W-C",
      "tlc": "101593704",
      "type": "Type 300",
      "ontSerialNumber": "ALCLB30F63A1"


  1. Above text is the only part of the payload that's changing in v2, rest of the payload remains the same
