New ✨

The subscriptions API now has a parameter called time_range_type

The Subscriptions API requires that users provide a start_time and end_time parameter to filter to a Time of Interest (TOI). Historically, these parameters filter items based on their published timestamp, which represents when the item is first published in Planet’s item store. However, most customers want to get imagery based on the time when an image is acquired rather than published.

Today we have introduced a new optional parameter to the Subscriptions API called time_range_type. With this new parameter, customers can choose which time range type they would like to receive: acquired or published.
