Advisory – Deprecating FTP for LeadGen APIs

Melissa will be deprecating and disabling File Transfer Protocol (ftp) for our LeadGen APIs. We will require that all applications that use our APIs to be able to request download file via https.

What is the deprecation timeline?

We will be updating our services to replace ftp link with https link on February 25th, 2021 at 11:00am PST. Please make sure your application is able to download files from https link.

What LeadGen APIs will be affected?

  • LeadGen Consumer
  • LeadGen Occupant
  • LeadGen Property
  • LeadGen Business
