Third Party Development:

XML API:

  • Access tokens provided by the SSO can now be used for authentication, in addition to customizable and legacy API keys. The token's scopes are mapped to corresponding access masks.
    • Pass in 'accessToken' and 'accessType' query parameters in place of 'keyID' and 'vCode'.
      • 'accessToken' is an access token provided by the SSO.
      • 'accessType' is optional, and should be set to either 'character' or 'corporation'. Defaults to 'character'.
    • For a character access type, the following scopes map to these access masks:
      • characterWalletRead maps to 1 | 2097152 | 4194304.
      • characterAssetsRead maps to 2 | 134217728.
      • characterCalendarRead maps to 4 | 1048576.

    • For a corporation access type, the following scopes map to these access masks:
      • corporationWalletRead maps to 1 | 8 | 1048576 | 2097152.
      • corporationAssetsRead maps to 2 | 32 | 16777216.

  • Two new endpoints have been added: char/Skills.xml.aspx and char/Clones.xml.aspx, with access masks 1073741824 and 2147483648.
    • These endpoints are strict subsets of information provided by char/CharacterSheet.xml.aspx, and are also accessible with keys matching access mask 8.

CREST API:

  • !!! BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE !!!
    There is no longer a separation of Public CREST and Authenticated CREST. There is just one version of CREST that handles all requests. If a request requires authentication you must pass an Authorization header with a valid SSO token. Otherwise you can just request public resources as normal. Note sending an Authorization header with a valid SSO token to public resources is fine. It won't break anything.
     
  • Along with the buy and sell market order resources there is a new resource that gives you the both the buy and sell orders. Route: /market/<regionID:integerType>/orders/
  • You can now get a list of all NPC corporations in EVE. Route: /corporations/npccorps/
  • Loyalty stores are now available in CREST and list all of the offers from an NPC corporation including the required LP, AK, ISK, and items. Note that not all NPC corporations have LP stores and you may get an corpHasNoLPStore error raised. Route: /corporations/<corporationID:corporationIdType>/loyaltystore/
  • The loyalty points a character has is now available with the characterLoyaltyPointsRead scope. This is a simple listing of corporations the character has LP with and the quantity of LP. This does not in any way detail LP transactions. Route: /characters/<characterID:characterIdType>/loyaltypoints/
  • Opportunities are now in CREST:
    • Opportunity groups are the high level collection of opportunities. Groups will have tasks under them and a player completes tasks. Once all the tasks for a group are completed the group can be considered completed. Route: /opportunities/groups/
    • Opportunity tasks are the tasks that need to be completed for opportunity groups. Route: /opportunities/tasks/
    • To get a list of the opportunity tasks a character has completed you will need the characterOpportunitiesRead scope. Route: /characters/<characterID:characterIdType>/opportunities/
  • Insurance prices are now available in CREST. Route: /insuranceprices/
  • The universe stations resource is now publicly available. Route: /stations/<stationID:integerType>/
  • Universe locations is now publicly available. Route: /universe/locations/<locationID:integerType>/
  • Fixed the character location resource. It should now work correctly and detail the solar system a character is in. If the character is in a station or citadel that will also be detailed. Still no ship type information included however.
  • Lots of code cleanup, minor backend fixes, and performance tweaks.
  • Fleet management has been added to CREST:
    • If you are the boss of a fleet you will find a new entry in the fleet menu called Copy External Fleet Link. Take that and pass it on to your favorite third-party developer.
    • Basic fleet information is available with a GET and details things like free move and MOTD. You can also PUT to this resource to update some of the information. Route: /fleets/<fleetID:integerType>/
    • Fleet members information includes a list of all members in the fleet and information such as if they take fleet warps, their time of joining fleet, their role, if they are a booster, their ship type, their location, and position in the fleet. You can also POST to this resource to invite people and optionally specify the wing/squad/role of the member being invited. Route: /fleets/<fleetID:integerType>/members/
      • A note on caching of the fleet members. This resource is cached for 5 seconds which allows you to keep a fairly real time view of the fleet layout. However information about a members ship and location is batched and sent to the fleet service every 30 seconds. So a members ship and location can be expected to be delayed by up to 30 seconds. This is the same in the client.
    • There is another resource available for specific members of a fleet. PUT requests allow you to move the member around the fleet while DELETE requests will kick the member from fleet. Route: /fleets/<fleetID:integerType>/members/<memberID:characterIdType>/
    • There is a separate resource for getting the actual hierarchy of the fleet. This wings resource will list all wings in the fleet and the squads in those wings with a GET request. You can also send a POST request to create new wings. Route: /fleets/<fleetID:integerType>/wings/
    • There is also a wing resource for individual wings. DELETE requests allow you to delete the wing if it is empty and PUT requests allow you to rename the wing. Route: /fleets/<fleetID:integerType>/wings/<wingID:integerType>/
    • There is a squads resource which only allows POST requests. This allows you to create new squads for a given wing. Route: /fleets/<fleetID:integerType>/wings/<wingID:integerType>/squads/
    • There is a squad resource that allows DELETE and PUT for deleting the squad and updating its name. Route: /fleets/<fleetID:integerType>/wings/<wingID:integerType>/squads/<squadID:integetType>/
  • The solar system resource (route: /solarsystems/<solarSystemID:integerType>/) now contains stargate and moon listings.
  • The planets resource has been refactored to use a JSON structure more consistent with other resources. Version 1 of this resource has been deprecated, and will be retired on 2017-01-01 .
  • The moons resource has been opened for third party use, and requires no scopes. It can be accessed at route "/moons/<moonID:integerType>/" and is linked to from the updated solar systems resource.
  • A new stargate resource has been created, and can be accessed from route "/stargates/<stargateID:integerType>/". It requires no scopes.
  • New structure related resources have been created for use with the new Citadels. <ul "="">
  • The corporation structures read resource returns a list of all structures owned by a corporation.
    • It can be accessed at route "/corporation/<corporationID:corporationIdType>/structures/".
    • It requires the "corporationStructuresRead" scope.
    • It is cached for 1 hour.
    • It will return a forbidden error of the character making the request is not in the specified corporation or does not have the "Station Manager" role within the specified corporation.
  • The structure vulnerability write resource allows users to update their upcoming structure vulnerability window.
    • It can be accessed from route "/structures/<structID:integerType>".
    • it requires the "structureVulnUpdate" scope.
    • Structure IDs can be discovered via the corporation structures read endpoint.
    • It will return a forbidden error of the character making the request is not in the specified corporation or does not have the "Station Manager" role within the specified corporation.
    • It accepts a vulnerability schedule for a structure, and sets the next week's pending schedule to the submitted schedule. This will "lock in" at midnight UTC on Sundays, in the same fashion as modifying the schedule in the client.
    • An options call to this resource will return the expected structure for a vulnerability schedule. The number of unique, valid hour/day entries you submit should match the number expected by the citadel size type. This is 3 for an Astrahus, 6 for a Fortizar and 21 for a Keepstar. The endpoint will inform you if an incorrect number is submitted.

Static Data Export (SDE):

  • The universe data and the SQL Server Backup file have been converted to YAML. The SDE now consists solely of YAML files.
