Subject DidMCF 2.12 change the JSON API response format?
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2019 06:44:35 GMT

After installing MCF 2.12 I am seeing a change in the JSON response 
format from the REST API.

Here's an example, from the URL mcf-api-service/json/jobs. I've isolated 
a job which exists in both my 2.11 and 2.12 instances. 2.11 is on the left:

The 2.12 format feels "internal" and I see that 
shows e.g. "_type_", "_children_" as constants (but that's also true in 

I can't see a release note that talks about this change, although 
"CONNECTORS-1549: Problem with API output JSON: losing order in child 
records." talks about JSON format and the test data for that change 
appears to change the JSON format as in my observation.

Is this change expected, and if so is there a way to request the 
pre-2.12 format?
