Postman Launches Postman Public Workspaces to Enable Collaborative API Design

Postman, an API design platform provider, has announced the launch of Postman Public Workspaces in an effort to accelerate API development practices through collaboration at a massive scale. This new initiative takes inspiration from the world of massively multiplayer gaming and leverages the platform’s userbase of more than 13 million developers.

Workspaces have been a part of Postman for some time now and have allowed developers to share Postman components with collaborators and organize their API work via these spaces. This functionality was previously limited to team access, but with the addition of Public Workspaces developers will now be able to gain benefit from Postman’s entire userbase. The company believes that this level of collaboration will fundamentally shift the way that APIs are designed. The product announcement noted that:

“Postman’s public workspaces will let a massive community of users engage with APIs or collections organized by API producers, with the ultimate quest of improving every API and the experience of that API’s consumers.”

Additionally, the announcement noted that Public Workspaces are not limited in scope to only APIs or companies. In fact, to kick off the product launch Postman has launched a series of workspaces that include likely offerings such as the Postman public workspace, in addition to less obvious options like the US 2020 Election public workspace.

Pie Insurance Launches Partner Program API to Streamline Workers’ Comp Claims

​Pie Insurance today launched its API for partners. Using Pie’s API, partners who serve small businesses can easily get a quote without leaving their platform or website, this is intended to streamline the process and help clients save on workers’ comp insurance. Partners can easily customize their integration, connecting to a variety of endpoints including accessing Pie’s appetite checker, getting a price indication, or retrieving a bindable quote to share with clients.

“Being able to access Pie’s application without leaving their own systems means partners are able to provide their small business clients with simple and affordable coverage more efficiently than ever before,”  said Dax Craig, co-founder and president of Pie Insurance. “We  believe opening up our API is an essential step to ensure Pie delivers an automated and easy-to-use workers’ comp insurance experience.”

Today’s news follows several innovations launched for partners in the past six months, including Pie’s partner portal, which makes it easier for partner agents to submit their clients for coverage and track their status in real time. In September, Pie unveiled automated bind requests, allowing partner agents to submit requests to bind on eligible submissions within the partner portal. The company also announced it grew its partner channel to more than 1,000 retail and wholesale agencies, representing a nearly 200% increase since the beginning of 2020.

Facebook Introduces V9 of the Graph and Marketing APIs

Facebook has announced the release of the Graph API v9.0Track this API and Marketing API v9.0Track this API. These updates included several changes that require developer action in order to ensure that production applications are not interrupted. Additional updates include adjustments to Instagram Follower count metrics and Instagram Ads API enhancements. 

For developers that have applications that are included in the Consumer & Gaming application types, it is important to note that Facebook will now begin requiring that applications include a pathway for users to request the deletion of account information. This can be handled either by a Data Deletion Request Callback or via a URL that provides detailed instructions for how this information can be deleted. Facebook plans to send reminders to developers that have not yet transitioned from Development Mode to Live Mode.

Additionally, Facebook has made changes to the way that third-party applications can access user information and connect CRM systems with Facebook’s APIs. These changes may result in a loss of access to Lead Ads campaign data. When updating to V9 applications that intend to continue receiving access may need to go through app review. 

Facebook also announced improvements to the Instagram Ads API, the announcement noted that:

“We are introducing several technical changes that will now give your users the ability to take existing organic Instagram posts and promote them as ads. We will also begin returning the Instagram Graph API’s user ID on the Instagram Ads API and several other endpoints, offering a more unified developer experience between the Ads and Graph API platforms.”

The company has also adjusted the Instagram follower count metric and noted that users may notice a one-time drop in followers via the API as they align this count with the native app.
