'service_documents' removed from motor ads


The field 'service_documents' has been removed. Use a media element described as 'Tilstandsrapport' for 'Tilstandsrapport', a link marked 'rel="urn:finn:iad:ad:naftest"' for 'NAF Test' and the 'car_service_history' field for 'Servicehistorikk' instead.

Replace 'nbf' with 'member_of_nbf' for motor ads


The field 'nbf' has been replaced with 'member_of_nbf'. The field 'member_of_nbf' is a boolean field that will have the value 'true' if the advertiser is a member of NBF (Norges Bilbransjeforbund).

Changes to 'completion' on realestate


There has been some confusion causing duplicate information in two fields. To fix this the field "completion" has been removed. You should use "development_completion_date" instead.

New field on realestate-project ads


The field "shared_cost_includes" has been added to realestate-project ads. The field is a text field which can contain a description of the shared costs (felleskostnader) for the units in the project.

Changes to price fields on realestate


Two new fields have been introduced to the Ad model for realestate-homes, realestate-leisure-sale, realestate-plot, realestate-project-unit, realestate-development-single. The new fields are named total_price and sales_cost_sum.

Total_price is a field that will contain the total price, that is the sum of the price suggestion, debt, sales tax and other sales costs.

Sales_cost_sum is a field that will contain the sum of all known sales cost like sales tax, official registrion, printing of documents etc.

Be aware of the old field total. This field must not be confused with the new total_price field. Therefore the old total field has been deprecated and will be removed on all Ad models for realestate (except realestate-development). If needed you can replace 'total' with an other new field 'price_with_collective_debt'. 'price_with_collective_debt' contain the same information as the old total field, but you should of course favor the new total_price field.

For more information about this change see the new guidelines for marketing of residences from The Consumer Authority or this statement from Eiendom Norge

New URL structure for images


Image URL paths will change slightly as we switch to a new image delivery service. All clients manipulating or replacing URLs need to update to the new structure:

Bugfix: ownership_type on realestate-leisure


The ownership_type field on the search result of realestate-leisure-sale and realestate-leisure-sale-abroad previously presented as a list of 1 element. This has now been fixed to be a single field of type "string", matching the model and the datatype on the ad-resource.
