What's New

New Feature for Logs
3.18.2016 has an updated Logs feature that will now allow you to search for calls made from your app during a more specific time. Before this update, the logs could be filtered only by day, week, month, or year; now, you can filter them down to the second.
To use this new feature, navigate to your app profile, click on Monitor in the left side navigation, and then click on Logs. By default, the second filter option at the top of this page will say "1 Day". Click on this filter and choose "Custom". A new filter option will appear, allowing you to choose the day on a calendar, and the hour, minute, and second just below it, as shown in the screenshot below.
"Dev Console" is now "Test Client"
Due to an update on, the Dev Console has been replaced with the Test Client. We hope this update will improve your experience with our website and our APIs. The Test Client is organized similarly to the old Dev Console, though the operations are now ordered by name in the drop-down list, and several of the options have been re-organized to make the process simpler for you.
You can try the Test Client by navigating to your app on and clicking on the Test Client option in the left side navigation. For more detailed instructions on using the Test Client, view the Get Started Guide.
