When eBay stops sending Old OrderID?

eBay stated they are going to stop sending Old OrderID https://developer.ebay.com/devzone/xml/docs/reference/ebay/getorders.html#Request.OrderIDArray.OrderID. Does anybody know when exactly they are going to do it? Thanks in advance! Here is the whole statement: Note: As of June 2019, eBay has changed the format of order identifier values. The new format is a non-parsable string, globally unique across all eBay marketplaces, and consistent for both single line item and multiple line item orders. Unlike in the past, instead of just being known and exposed to the seller, these unique order identifiers will also be known and used/referenced by the buyer and eBay customer support. For developers and sellers who are already integrated with the Trading API's order management calls, this change shouldn't impact your integration unless you parse the existing order identifiers (e.g., OrderID or OrderLineItemID), or otherwise infer meaning from the format (e.g., differentiating between a single line item order versus a multiple line item order). Because we realize that some integrations may have logic that is dependent upon the old identifier format, eBay is rolling out this Trading API change with version control to support a transition period of approximately 9 months before applications must switch to the new format completely. During the transition period, for developers/sellers using a Trading WSDL older than Version 1113, they can use the X-EBAY-API-COMPATIBILITY-LEVEL HTTP header in API calls to control whether the new or old OrderID format is returned in call response payloads. To get the new OrderID format, the value of the X-EBAY-API-COMPATIBILITY-LEVEL HTTP header must be set to 1113. During the transition period and even after, the new and old OrderID formats will still be supported/accepted in all Trading API call request payloads. After the transition period (which will be announced), only the new OrderID format will be returned in all Trading API call response payloads, regardless of the Trading WSDL version used or specified compatibility level.

Hi @aziali29, eBay will support the old identifier format in APIs until at least Q1 2020, but it is a good idea that you want to integrate with the new format as soon as possible just for ease of management of orders, as only the new order ID format will be showing up elsewhere - Order Details, Seller Hub, email correspondence, etc. REF: [ https://developer.ebay.com/devzone/xml/docs/ReleaseNotes.html][1]( Check Version 1113).
