Similar to the brandings array defined by the publishable profile, the promo-card profile allows its content to be branded using a set of organization links. The brandings array is subject to the following constraints:

  • If present, brandings must contain one or more links
  • Links in brandings must start with http or https
  • Links in brandings cannot have rels
