APIkey authorization

API Feature Update 0.12.45 (20220607)

API key authentication is live!
You may now pass an API key via the Authorization HTTP header. This method will replace the current OAuth Bearer token authentication.
Some advantages include:

  • Easier key management (key length is only 40 alpha-numeric characters)
  • Multiple keys per user (you can implement key rotation easily)

Bearer token authentication will continue to work as it does now until the end of 2022.

Last Known Price backfill

The Last Known Price is the most recent valid price that ValueChecker has stored for a Claimed Product. When available it will be included in the claimed_product object if no current valid prices for the Claimed Product are found in the current market. It is also included in the group_prices object as a filtered_price replacement if no other current prices are available for any possible replacement.
