LIVE PUBLICATIONS


Live publications represent the metadata and the streaming URLs for the content. They also contain some basic time information which can inform state.

Live Publication Object

A Live Publication is defined as the following structure:

{
    "id": "16e4d793-0484-4923-a4d8-3e3a0604d725",
    "target": 0,
    "destinationId": "8b8d0b78-60f0-4257-b2e7-13874ecd28f6",
    "destinationName": "Example Destination",
    "transactionId": "bfe6e52b-a5c5-47f6-b77d-be0d80ff46cf",
    "contentId": "my-content-id",
    "dateCreated": "2018-10-05T12:28:14Z",
    "dateCompleted": "",
    "dateStarted": "2018-10-05T12:29:39Z",
    "publicationState": 3,
    "publicationStateString": "Completed",
    "details": {},
    "callbacks": [
        {
            "id": "4bf271e2-1544-4343-ad43-15b6d6d2cdd8",
            "publicationId": "16e4d793-0484-4923-a4d8-3e3a0604d725",
            "url": "",
            "lastTriggered": "2018-10-05T12:29:40Z"
        }
    ]
}

Notes:

The details property differs per Target and is here.

The property CallbackUrls inside of Details will always be a string array of the URL properties from the Callbacks property from the Publication itself.

VOD Publications match Live Publications in structure, except for the Details property. This means you can work with both generically.


Live Publication States

A Live Publication can go through the following states:

1 = Scheduled           - the Publication exists in the API but not on the Destination.
2 = InProgress          - the Publication is currently started but not yet complete.
3 = Completed           - the Publication has been completed successfully.
4 = FailedDestination   - the Publication's Destination is not active.
6 = FailedPublication   - the Publication is lacking ingestionDetails or isUnavailable is true.
