The /v2/assets route deals with all types of assets.

Note: For more information about Backlot REST API commands, see the Backlot API Reference.

When you create a new asset in the Backlot REST API, the asset_type property in the request body can specify any of the following values.

  • video
  • ad: An ad is simply a video, marked as an ad in the Backlot UI.
  • audio
  • remote_asset
  • youtube: A video destined for YouTube
  • live_stream (deprecated)
  • live_audio (deprecated)
  • channel (deprecated)
  • channel_set (deprecated)

After an asset is created with [POST] /v2/assets (as described in ), in general you can update it in a variety of ways with [PATCH] /v2/assets or change its associations with [PUT] /v2/assets. See Routes and Attributes Common to All Asset Types.
