Developers that are using RIM’s free BlackBerry Analytics service powered by Webtrends are getting a nice facelift this weekend. RIM sent out an email that the portal is getting redesigned starting Saturday November 12th from 7:30AM Pacific Time and lasting for “several hours.” The BlackBerry Analytics service will continue collecting data at that time but the portal will not be available. They are also not changing the available reports or SDK.
The main three changes are:
- *New* Access Rights For Spaces: For development teams with multiple users, this gives you the ability to control which users can access each space (i.e. app). Note that any non-administrator accounts created after the update will by default have no access rights. You can grant access to report users by editing either the space or the user.
- Performance Enhancements: Expect your reports to load more quickly
- REST APIs: Enhancements to the REST web services for report export
The BlackBerry Analytics Portal will remain at blackberry.webtrends.com
