Setting External ID using API

TS-00104 Backlot API

External ID 


You can set an external ID for assets in your library which can be helpful in integrating Backlot with other CMS.


An asset’s external ID can be used instead of the asset’s embed code anywhere an embed code is expected in our API. External IDs cannot contain commas(“,”) or slashes (“/”).

You can assign this value when creating a video :

[POST] /v2/assets





Or anytime after that:

[PATCH] /v2/assets




Example of usage

Retrieving asset information using an external id “12345”


This request will bring up information for an asset with the external ID of 12345
