Course announcements are vital for timely communication in courses. Some courses contain users in varying roles. Identifying announcement authors via REST API is challenging for users. We've enhanced the Announcement API by adding the "Creator" parameter. This reveals the user IDs of the authors of both Course and System Announcements.

With the new "Creator" parameter, developers can now identify the authors of announcements via API. Administrators can also filter announcements by the creator.

For administrators: The required entitlements for Announcements API remain unchanged.
