What's New with the 12 May Release

This week we have rolled out several important new updates, features, and fixes.

API Updates:

  • Merchants now have the option to select either 4 digit or six digit PINs for employees. This setting is exposed through the REST API from the /v3/merchants/PWPH981CWGAX6/properties  endpoint under the pinLength field.
  • REST API requests with expansion query values that include non-letters will now return 400 Error 'Unable to parse expandedField'.

Dashboard Updates:

  • App package names are now based on the first uploaded package, instead of being set before uploading. Be sure to review the Android documentation as there have been several updates:
  • Android app push notifications are now constrained to alphanumeric characters, underscores and hyphens.

Bug Fixes:

  • New EU developer merchants are no longer automatically assigned a region of en-us.
  • Web app installation redirects now respect app's default response type selection.
  • Fixed bug preventing developers from removing an app's smart receipts URL once it had been entered.
