How should I deal with the depreciation of Adyen's idempotency legacy solution?
Why are we changing our idempotency solution?
Adyen has developed a new idempotency framework that is able to optimally scale with the growth of Adyen’s platform. This new framework allows for increased synchronous processing, improved retry logic and better resilience.
With this new idempotency framework in place, Adyen will deprecate its legacy idempotency solution. Merchants making use of our legacy solution will require review of their integration and make updates where necessary.
What is the timeline for this change?
The deprecation of the legacy idempotency solution will be conducted in two stages:
- Test environment – Deprecation of legacy solution by Wednesday July 1st
- Live Environment – Deprecation of legacy solution by Tuesday September 15th
Our new idempotency framework is already available for merchants in the test and live environment. A timeline for both stages of the migration can be found below:
What are the main technical differences between both idempotency solutions?
The table below shows overview of the main technical differences:
*Please note that Adyen’s idempotency service is region specific and therefore the merchant provided unique idempotency keys should not be used cross-regionally in case you are processing in more than one region.
Where can I find more information about Adyen’s most recent idempotency solution?
Further information is available in our documentation, which you can find in our Adyen docs page here: API idempotency.
Please note that Adyen’s idempotency service is region specific and therefore the merchant provided unique idempotency keys should not be used cross-regionally in case you are processing in more than one region.
More details about idempotent keys refer to this page: key scope and validity time.
What are the next steps that I require to take for this change?
Our new idempotency framework is already available in the test and live environment. Your technical team or integrator can already start verifying your payments integration to assess the necessary changes and test it against our end points.
