10.2 Hub Integration and documentation

In the live stream yesterday I thought I heard that with approval, third party apps could register new Account types and have full hub integration. However, I can't find any examples of this, and the docs still say:

 

"Any Account calls requiring write access (to edit, add or delete an account) are not granted to third party applications and will result in failure."

https://developer.blackberry.com/native/reference/cascades/bb__pim__account__accountservice.html

 

Since I can't add to the Hub context menu, it appears the only way to make my app functional is to go the full hub integration route, but I can't find any information on how to do it. Is this possible in 10.2?

Re: 10.2 Hub Integration and documentation

Hello,

 

If you go to https://developer.blackberry.com/jam/headless/  you can apply to have your app granted access for either Hub Integration or to run as a Headless App.

 

As for API documentation how to implement the Hub integration, I am not sure yet where those are located.

Touch Painter, LinkShrink

Re: 10.2 Hub Integration and documentation

Thanks; I have already submitted the form. It is documentation and/or examples that I need showing what exactly "Hub Integration" provides.

I have also been looking and I can't find any information regarding Hub integration.

 

It would be great if we could have a sample added to GitHub
