We’ve released the first methods for API 5 – our redesigned Yandex.Direct application programming interface.
API 5 is much more convenient and faster than previous versions. It will work as an add-on to the familiar API Live 4 for a year, so you will be able to use both old and new methods at once and seamlessly switch to the fifth version while optimizing your routine operations.
All new Yandex.Direct’s features will be supported in API 5. Now you can manage your bids, keywords, vCards, and sitelinks, as well as create ad groups and ads via the new API. You can learn about the other methods as they roll out from our news.
The sunset for API Live 4 is scheduled for 2016, but we will be sure to let you know in advance. However, we recommend that you start learning API 5, since most of the new features that we are rapidly adding to Yandex.Direct will only be supported there.
