The API has additional features such as tracking all player records and tracking global jumpstats top. It will be expanded in the future to include things like global settings and global replays. If the server does not have the KZTimer-API plugin, 1.89 will fall back to the standard global database system. To utilize the API, you will need to download the KZTimer-API plugin combined with the GlobalRecords-Core and Jumpstats plugin. Installation guides of both plugins can be found on their bitbucket readme files. API Key is also required to utilize the API, you can apply for one via our portal (https://portal.global-api.com/servers/apply) please note that you have to apply for every server you own. GlobalRecords plugin has also been updated to 1.2.0 as well. We highly recommend updating to latest releases. RELEASES CAN BE FOUND UNDER DOWNLOADS ON BITBUCKET KZTimer-API Plugin: https://bitbucket.org/kztimerglobalteam/kztimer-api/downloads/ GlobalRecordsPlugin: https://bitbucket.org/kztimerglobalteam/globalrecordssmplugin/downloads/ With the API now being available on both GOKZ and KZTimer, we will see a large uptick in data being sent. Our goal is to use the performance metrics from this open beta and prepare for the full release of the API. If any issues occur, please message the Global Team. We hope you’re excited for these changes as much as we are and look forward to hearing your input. Thank you, the Global Team.
