Product Update

Asset Type Definitions

As we work to expand functionality of the new AB Connect Alignment App that was announced in the last Newsletter, we now have additional API support for Custom Properties. This includes delivering the human readable “label” of the property as well as being able to identify which properties should be filterable/facet-able. Full documentation will be coming soon, but let AB Support know if you have any questions.Want to try it out? You can access the application here.
