Developers looking for beta access to the Account Activity API product can apply for access through our new developer access application. It is important to note, in the use case details section, make sure to:

  • be thorough in describing what you're building
  • clearly state that you need access to the Account Activity API beta

Those needing access to more than 35 subscriptions, reliability features, multiple webhook connections, or managed support should apply for enterprise level access here.
