Is Native API for ObjectScript also included for Bonus Points ?

You've just posted an article!) I wasn't aware too.

We need to check and maybe we'll include this as well!

We may add more bonuses - the contest will start next Monday, we still have time to add more ;)

until a few minutes before I wasn't aware myself  laugh  yes 

I suggest more two bonus points.

1 - If you use BPL or integration adapter;

2 - If you use iris analytics, consuming bi cube from the frontend using mdx, api or sql.
