Do the same calls to the same APIs from the same customers ever change from v1 to v2 (or vice versa)? If not, can you record if it was v1/2 and then always make the same call after that? And then don't record errors for your initial probe request? Then your data will be clean and you'll make a lot less calls.

Yeah, we have some caching and retain metadata to avoid making more calls than we need to.

It’s just frustrating that we need to keep this information around on our side to mitigate issues with the API that is central to their entire business.
