Info: Deprecation of ECS SOAP API

Applies to:

All versions of Venafi Trust Protection Platform (TPP). Currently, this is up to and including 19.1.


On Feb 14 2019, made the following announcement which is causing some concern with Entrust users:

"The Entrust Certificate Services team announced the release of the ECS REST API into production on January 25, 2019, with the 12.6 release. With this release, we have deprecated the ECS SOAP API, with plans to completely decommission it by January 31, 2020.

We recommend that you plan your integration with the REST API as soon as possible. Should you have any questions, please contact your Entrust Datacard account or technical representative.”

More Information / Response

Currently, the TPP CA driver uses the SOAP API endpoint for enrollment

Product Management is working closely with Entrust to update TPP to switch to the new REST API, and Entrust agreed not to turn off the SOAP API until Venafi has been able to update our customers to the newer API calls.

If for some reason a customer is unable to upgrade when that time comes, there will be an option to use an Adaptable driver instead.
