Work orders are used by all customers running Next whilst variation orders are optional to use. From a technical perspective work orders and variation orders are kind of the same, even though they are divided into two separate endpoints. To keep work orders and variation orders apart you can use the flag called Addition (If false = work order and if true = variation order) where appropriate. However, most often it is the id of the post that is used as identifier and this will always be unique.
If work orders/variation orders are used as an own entity rather than an dimension it is important to know that start- and end dates needs to be gathered from the project since variation order does not include these attributes.
