Breaking Change: field data type change


A bug was discovered in the CSDL target, which unfortunately prevents this target from matching any data. Internally, DataSift’s filtering engine expects this field to be passed as a String, but is incorrectly passed an Integer at present.

We have scheduled a hotfix to our filtering engine for Monday July 13th, 2015 (during UK daytime), in which we will change the data type of this output field from an Integer to a String.

What will happen to the data I receive?

This change will require us to change the data type of to a String, so you will need to ensure that your application can handle this field as a String, rather than an Integer.

Release Notes thru July 14th, 2015
