The Windows Store Analytics API offers data retrieval about a specific application related to a Windows Dev Center account. It can be used to obtain data associated with in-app product (IAP) acquisitions, errors, app ratings, and reviews. The Windows Store Analytics API uses Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) for call authentication.
