Magellan Active Website Version 1.22 Released

Announcement

Magellan Active Website Version 1.22 has been released.

Overview

Magellan Active now supports the OAuth authorization protocol for granting other websites and applications access to your Magellan Active data. This means you will no longer have to supply another website or application with your Magellan username and password in order for them to access your data. The old authorization method still works, but it will no longer be supported at some point in the future, so we will work with websites and applications to move them over to the new authorization method.

Magellan Active and Smashrun for Detailed Run Analysis

The Magellan Active website is built upon a powerful API that interacts with your activity data. As part of our pledge to empower developers to extend the functionality of the Magellan Active website and API, we allow key partners to add activities to Magellan Active from within their applications and also allow any developer you’ve granted authorization to retrieve all of your activity data. We’d like to highlight the latest partner to take your Magellan Active activity data and literally “run with it”. Meet Smashrun.

Change Log

  • newfeature Added “uploaded_at” and “uploader” response fields to Activity Object from Activity Get. If the activity was uploaded by a 3rd party app, this will be reflected in the “uploader” field.
  • newfeature Added “min_updated_at” and “max_updated_at” parameters  to Activity Search and “updated_at” response field to the Activity Object from Activity Get.

  • task Updated Activity Search documentation of options for “activity_source” parameter & response fields. It was documented as “gpx” & “fit”, but it was implemented as “.gpx” & “.fit”.
