This feature was newly added for the latest release:

These features were added in previous releases:

  • An article endpoint returns a new state called DUPLICATE if the article is already available in the channel. See Article.

  • A DUPLICATE_ARTICLE_FOUND error is generated if an article with the same title is published to the same channel within 24 hours. See Create an Article and Code.

  • The Read Channel Quota Information endpoint provides information about your channel's remaining quota, queue size, and wait time.

  • The Apple News API Tutorial describes how to request channel data and publish an article to your channel.

  • You can provide target territories (targetTerritoryCountryCodes) for publishing and updating an article. By default, an article inherits the channel's territories. See Create Article Metadata Fields and Update Article Metadata Fields.
