CMS API

In this sample, you will learn how to use the CMS API to generate a table of download links for the best MP4 renditions of your videos.

Get credentials

To use the CMS API you will need proper credentials.

The easiest way to get credentials in most cases is through the Studio Admin API Authentication section (requires admin permissions on your account). See Managing API Authentication Credentials for details. In most cases, you probably just want to get permissions for all CMS API operation:

CMS API Permissions
CMS API Permissions

If the permissions you need are not available in Studio, or if you prefer to get them directly from the OAuth API, use your choice of the Get Client Credentials documents listed below. Whichever option you choose, you will need to ask for the correct operation permissions. The following can be used with cURL or Postman to get all permissions for the CMS API:

  "operations": [
    "video-cloud/video/all",
    "video-cloud/playlist/all",
    "video-cloud/sharing-relationships/all",
    "video-cloud/notifications/all"
  ]
