Event Grid 4.0.0 Changelog

  • Update version to 4.0.0 to align with other EventGrid SDKs

Breaking Changes

  • EventGridConsumer no longer applies any conversions to the data property of system events. The interfaces that describe the data payload of each system event has been updated to reflect this. The most visible impact of this change is that some properties of events are no longer converted into JavaScript Date objects, and instead are kepts as strings which contain ISO 8601 timestamps.
  • Related to the above, EventGridConsumer no longer accepts a set of custom converters that can be used to further transform the data property of a specific event type when deserializing events.
  • The interfaces which describe the shape of the data member of system events have been updated so that properties always included in the event are not typed as optional.

Event Grid 4.1.0 Changelog

  • The system event names Microsoft.Communication.ChatParticipantAddedToThread and Microsoft.Communication.ChatParticipantRemovedFromThread have been removed, and Microsoft.Communication.ChatThreadParticipantAdded and Microsoft.Communication.ChatThreadParticipantRemoved have been added. The old names did not match the the type names that Azure Communication Services was using for these events. TypeScript users will now see compliation errors if they are calling isSystemEvent with either Microsoft.Communication.ChatParticipantAddedToThread or Microsoft.Communication.ChatParticipantRemovedFromThread as the event name. To fix these issues, replace all uses of Microsoft.Communication.ChatParticipantAddedToThread with Microsoft.Communication.ChatThreadParticipantAdded and Microsoft.Communication.ChatParticipantRemovedFromThread with Microsoft.Communication.ChatThreadParticipantRemoved.
  • Add Microsoft.Communications.RecordingFileStatusUpdated system event.
