Control Panel 2.0.1 Released
September 16, 2010 | David Henzel
In a continued effort to add features that our loyal customers have given us feedback on we have added some great functionality to our API related to our Live Zone service. It is now possible to pull the same type of reporting that is featured in your CDN control panel. Through our XML-RPC API you can now pull a peak connections report on a daily or hourly level as well as a hourly viewer hours report. Updated Live Zone API Documentation can be found at docs.maxcdn.com
This release also includes some improvements on the API in terms of validation error messages as well as an improved zone creation process inside the control panel.
To use the new Live Zone API customers will need to connect, validating with their API Userid and key. Please note that due to security reasons special Live Zone access rights will need to be granted to those customers who need this functionality. To make this request please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
To improve our error checking our development team has also added API validation to the following calls
pullzone.create, pullzone.update, pushzone.create, pushzone.update, vodzone.create, vodzone.update, livezone.create, livezone.update
Another minor update that was made was to improve the zone creation process inside the control panel. Many customers gave us feedback that the process sort of fell off after they had submitted their information. To fix this we made it so that after zone creation in the control panel, a link is shown to manage the new zone instead of just giving a zone creation success message.
We hope that this and our new Live Streaming Zone feature helps, and we look forward to reading any bug, feedback or general email responses that our customers and potential customers send us. As a nimble company we are always ready to create any new feature and take customer support very seriously and will listen to any feedback that we receive.
