AGS 3.65.0 Release Notes

Last updated on February 12, 2024

Release date: January 2nd, 2024

AccelByte Gaming Services (AGS) Game SDK latest version

Extend SDK (previously known as Server SDK) latest version

DSuploader latest version

  • Armada DS Uploader: 1.6.0

Highlights

  • Added new support for connecting to Redshift and Snowflake warehouses through analytic connector v2 in the Admin Portal.
  • Introduced a new feature in our User Generated Content (UGC) service that allows the Admin to enable the content review process. When this feature is enabled, any new or updated content will go through a review process and require approval from the Admin before being published. This feature will help ensure the quality and appropriateness of the user-generated content on the platform.
    • Availability for Game SDK will be released by AGS 3.66.
  • Introduced a new endpoint, PublicGetUsersPlatformInfosV3, which is used to return a user’s basic info and public information of their third party accounts.
  • Introduced a new page in the Admin Portal, Entitlement Availability, which can be accessed by going to E-Commerce > Entitlements > Entitlement Availability.
    • This page is used for admins to define which sources of Entitlement data that each platform can access, ensuring that data access rights match the current platform of the players (for example, admins can allow/disallow an Xbox client from accessing entitlements that are sourced from PlayStation / Steam / Epic / etc.).
      • Note: This feature is disabled by default, as enabling it could potentially result in a breaking change. For more information, see the Breaking Changes section.
  • Optimized the deployment mechanism for faster and smoother feature development with minimal disruptions.

Quality of life changes

  • Adjusted the flow for connecting data into s3 bucket in connector v2 in Admin Portal:
    • The Field platform is introduced in the connector list page.
    • Upon creating the connector, a new field to select the database platform is available with selection values of S3, Snowflake and Redshift.
      • Step 1 General Configuration pages will provide different fields based on database configuration selection.
      • Step 3 Bucket Policy Script Configuration is changed to Public Key Configuration and will provide different guides for public key configuration based on database configuration selection.
  • Added a notification to the Season Pass service that allows admin users to get notified on the Admin Portal when a Pass item is disabled or deleted.

Breaking Changes

  • Introduced a new page in the Admin Portal, Entitlement Availability, which can be accessed by going to E-Commerce > Entitlements > Entitlement Availability. This page is disabled by default.

    • If enabled, it will have the following impact (Note: Reach out to Support to request enablement):

      • Consumable entitlements synced from IAP/DLC will be stacked by their Platform Source, for example:
        • PlayStation DLC rewards: 5 counts of itemA
        • Xbox DLC rewards: 5 counts of itemA
      • The entitlements will be recorded as follows:
        • Entitlement A (itemA) - origin: Xbox, use count: 5_
        • Entitlement B (itemA) - origin: PlayStation, use count: 5
    • If the Platform field (under the Client SDK Configuration section) of the IAM Client for the game client is configured with a third party platform, i.e., PlayStation, Xbox, etc., when querying for player entitlements, only the entitlements sourced from the configured platform will be returned.

    • The publicSellUserEntitlement and publicConsumeUserEntitlement endpoints will check for an entitlement’s Platform Source to see if it can be executed for a specific platform, based on the configuration on the Entitlement Availability page.

      • If it’s not allowed, the endpoints will return an error code: 31183 - Entitlement [{entitlementId}] origin [{origin}] not allowed to be operated at [{platform}].
