Welcome to our Q2 2022 Release note!
We will share with you our most important product updates to let you easily find, in a centralized space, all the news around our products.
If you have any question on these updates, feel free to contact your Content manager or your Support team, we're here to help you!
Partner HQ header and improved mobile navigation
As announced in our Q1 Release note, we continue to improve the Partner HQ navigation in 2022. This quarter, we've reorganized your sections with a new header and a new menu.
The mobile navigation has also been improved, allowing you to browse your channels and upload content from your mobile devices.
- The header is centralizing all the features related to your organization (switch on your different channels, add new channels and users to your organization, manage your API keys). You also have a new button available on your header, which allows you to quickly add a new media to the channel you're currently logged in.
- The left menu is centralizing all the features related to the channel and its assets (upload new content, channel management, create players and define their behavior).
This summer, we will continue to improve the Partner HQ with an improved navigation for desktop and mobile.
Manage your API keys on the Organization level
Along with the new Partner HQ header, we've updated the API key management interfaces to make it easier for you.
API keys are now managed on an Organization level, which allows you to access to all your API keys in a dedicated space.
We'll also introduce in the coming months two different kind of API keys, allowing you to get a better control over your apps and the accesses provided by these keys.
