The Windows Store submission API was launched earlier this year, enabling you to automate app, IAP durables and consumables, and package flights publishing through a REST API. Using the submission API helps speed up publishing, automate release management and reduce publishing errors.
This month, the submission API added two new capabilities:
- Enable and manage package rollout – adjust the percentage of users that get a flight, halt or complete a flight (API documentation for mandatory package update for app submission, API documentation for mandatory package update for flights)
- Define mandatory updates – indicate if a submission is mandatory (read more in the Mandatory Update launch communication, API documentation for gradual package rollout for app submission, API documentation for gradual package rollout for flights)
If you try the submission API and receive an access denied error, please use the Feedback option at the bottom right of the Dev Center dashboard and select Submission API for the feedback area to request access.
Download Visual Studio to get started.
The Windows team would love to hear your feedback. Please keep the feedback coming using our Windows Developer UserVoice site. If you have a direct bug, please use the Windows Feedback tool built directly into Windows 10.
