Reading API for DPS 2015

Related to: Is there a new API for Digital Publishing Solution?

According to the article above the reading API is not available / working.

Currently I'm using this API "Adobe DPS - Reading SDK 2.32" and it work fine with DPS Classic.


I'v developed a number of HTML Overlays based on the ReadingAPI the main information that I was reading out of it was the authtoken, articleTitle / article Name, page number, folio productID.

I'v also developed a number of custom library / store fronts using the libraryStore API.

Now none of these API's are available / working in DPS 2015 my customers wont migrate across because they want to be able to have customised content that allows then to extend the DPS framework.


I need to do things like:

  • Custom login box.
  • Updating a subscribers login details / personal details.
  • Redeeming a coupon.
  • Sync subscription based data back to an entitlement server.

Is it in the pipeline to create a new API for DPS 2015?

When will it be released?

Will it be across all platforms? This is critical...! especially being able to sign in and having access to the authtoken... (not currently available in the Reading API)

App extensibility is a priority for the first half of 2016. It will be different from the design patterns used in the Classic product’s Library and Reading SDK, but it will satisfy many of the same use cases. In fact, our goal is to deliver deeper, cross-platform extensibility than the Classic product allowed.

I really think that's a mistake in the documentation. I would give calling those APIs a try on Android and Windows, I can't imagine why I wouldn't have included that set in the list when we built the custom storefront/reading APIs for Android and Windows native viewers in DPS Classic.

Edit: Jamie corrected me, those APIs really are iOS only in classic.

Hi Jamie,

Yes I know that it is available in the Reading API, however it is only available for IOS, my customers want to build apps / articles for IOS, Android Windows and the web content viewer.

Hello Nocker,

I'll let others respond to your main question, but FYI authtoken is available on the reading API in DPS Classic (2014).  It's in the AuthenticationService, you can find it here: Adobe DPS - Reading SDK 2.32 : adobeDPS-AuthenticationService : JsDoc Reference
