2019-04-15 Changes to return values of Get Task and Get Task Assignment API endpoints

We have released an update to the API responses of the Get Task and Get Task Assignment endpoints.

Prior to this change, if a call was made to get a task or task assignment with a valid task ID, and that file was deleted or your permissions changed to prevent viewing the file, you would receive a 404 error because the tasks would be deleted with the file.

With this new change, the response returned will be the task object with a null response where the item would be, rather than a 404 error response.
