Frequently asked questions about the old SOAP API
The Riksbank has developed a new REST API for interest rates and exchange rates. The Riksbank’s old SOAP API will close on 27 May 2024.
THE SOAP API WILL CLOSE
The Riksbank's old SOAP API for interest rates and exchange rates is available for a transitional period to give users time to update their existing integrations. On 27 May 2024, the SOAP API will close. When it closes on 27 May 2024, the SOAP API will stop working and the new REST API must be used to continue to be able to retrieve interest rates and exchange rates automatically via API from the Riksbank.
Why is the Riksbank changing its API from SOAP to REST?
The Riksbank is modernising and changing its technical platform for the underlying API. In connection with this, we are also changing to a REST API that is more modern, easier to use and more future-proof. The same data will be exposed as before.
What do I need to do if I currently have an integration with the Riksbank’s old SOAP API?
You need to undertake a transition to the new REST API as the SOAP API will close and will therefore stop functioning on 27 May 2024.
On the page “FAQ about the REST API for interest rates and exchange rates”, you will find information on how to use the new API.
