Using the Backlot REST API

Ooyala provides a REST-based interface that enables you to make requests to the Backlot platform.

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

If API access is enabled for your user account, Ooyala provides you with an API Key and a Secret Key. If you use the Ooyala SDKs, they automatically compute the signature based on these credentials. If you make HTTP calls directly, you must write the code to compute the signature.
