Before You Begin



API endpoints 

An API endpoint is a path that uniquely identifies a Cinema8 resource: anything from an interactive video to a user account. The exact path of the endpoint differs depending on the type of resource, but you always append it to https://cinema8.com/api/v1/.


Resource

Interactive Video
https://cinema8.com/api/v1/scene
Folder
Media
User
https://cinema8.com/api/v1/user
Analytics
* Items between braces such as {video_id} represent parameter values.


To access rest endpoint you need to obtain an api key and send this key within Request Headers.

Headers:     Authorization: Bearer <base_64_encoded(API_KEY)>

You can  download the POSTMAN API Collection File from the attachments.
