#2026 [RFE] Investigate per-method versioning
Closed: fixed a year ago Opened 8 years ago by rcritten.

During a discussion on extending IPA the idea of versions came up. Right now there is a coarse version that the client sends to the server and the server decides whether it will talk to the client or not.

If we're extending a plugin to add new required attributes we need a way to bump the version programatically.

Alexander suggested we might do per-object or per-method versioning so we store an offset from the coarse version for extensions and use that to check for compatibility.
