Deployment: 13.04.2021

  • We added a new property autoTranslate to all vertexes to control if the data should be automatically translated. With this property you can disable the translations of data uploaded with the infocenter update API.
  • For guidle data we now store the guidle webcode intead of the id, because the webcode is used in the guidle links instead of the id.
  • The tag list endpoint now supports a new query parameter usage to filter which tag types should be returned.
  • The search endpoint now filters data based on the accept-language header, this means if an object isn't available in the requested language it will not be returned. It only affects objects where autoTranslate was set to false because all other objects should be automatically translated to all available languages (de, en, it, fr).

Breaking changes


  • License property is added to all objects (e.g. CC-BY-ND, CC-BY-SA)
  • Datasource is moved to Origin within DataGovernance. The DataGovernance property contains a list of origins. This change was made to be able to display the DataGovernance correctly if the object was combined from multiple sources.
  • Within DataGovernance:
    • The Property Supplier was renamed to Provider
    • The Source type has changed to Partner
    • Author has changed from string to Person (givenName, familyName, email)
  • Zurichcard property type has changed from string to bool
  • OpeningHoursSpecification opens, closes type has changed to string(time)
  • nextOccurrence was added to events which displays the next occurens when the event is recurring
