Customers are being alerted by FedEx that the development for the FedEx Web Services (SOAP) integration has been discontinued in preparation for its retirement.  FedEx is suggesting to modernize the integration by using the FedEx API (REST) solution.  Does Acumatica have a schedule for the conversion of the FedEx plugin to use the FedEx Rest API services?

In 2023 R1 we delivered an integration to FedEx using their REST API. 

Here is a snippet from the initial release notes:

In previous versions of Acumatica ERP, FedEx Web Services API V10 was used for the integration of the FedEx carrier service. Recently, FedEx informed developers that the service plans to stop supporting the Web Services API in the near future.
In Acumatica ERP 2023 R1, support of the FedEx REST API has been implemented to ensure that the users will be able to use the FedEx carrier service. Currently, both the FedEx Web Services API and the FedEx REST API are supported.

Great; Thank you for the quick response.

 

@Doug Johnson 

Our Acumatica version is 2022R2 which was configured to use Fedex SOAP API.

Do we have to upgrade to Acumatica 2023R1 later versions, or only need to modify some (endpoints) configurations, in order to comply with Fedex REST API when Fedex disables the SOAP API services in the future ? Thanks!
