Updated Platform API for Partners

ecosystem , Director of Product & Partnerships

The Platform API for Partners provides many official endpoints that the App Info API doesn’t support.

With Heroku CI, you will see an increase in the number of default ephemeral plan resources regularly provisioned on Heroku review and CI apps. Previously, these apps used the add-on plan configured for staging.
