Handshake: appKey or apiKey ?

Hello, suddenly we had problems using our application since the handshakes kept failing.
A bit of debugging and a test later, it seems like in the handshake command, we have to use the field apiKey and not appKey anymore. But appKey is still the way to go according to your documentation.

Is there a reason for this change ? How is it possible to get notified if there are breaking changes in newer versions of the side by side integration API ?

@mmewes
Thank you very much for reporting this issue. The breaking change was not intentional. The new key name apiKey was supposed to be in addition to the appKey, not as a replacement. Both should perform the same function. At some point in the future we will probably remove the appKey, but since this is a breaking change, as you rightfully pointed out, it will be properly communicated.
At the moment we're restoring the inadvertently removed appKey. It should be functioning again in a few days. I apologize for the inconvenience.
