    Media Sharing Report

    This sample provides a report in CSV format on videos that have been shared from an account.

    Introduction

    This sample app generates a CSV report on videos shared from a Video Cloud account. If you want a report on videos shared to the account instead, see the Shared Media Report sample instead.

    Get credentials

    To use the CMS API you will need proper credentials.

    The easiest way to get credentials in most cases is through the Studio Admin API Authentication section (requires admin permissions on your account). See Managing API Authentication Credentials for details. In most cases, you probably just want to get permissions for all CMS API operation:

    CMS API Permissions
    CMS API Permissions

    If the permissions you need are not available in Studio, or if you prefer to get them directly from the OAuth API, use your choice of the Get Client Credentials documents listed below. Whichever option you choose, you will need to ask for the correct operation permissions. The following can be used with cURL or Postman to get all permissions for the CMS API:

            "operations": [
              "video-cloud/video/all",
              "video-cloud/playlist/all",
              "video-cloud/sharing-relationships/all",
              "video-cloud/notifications/all"
            ]

    • Click the HTML/CSS/JS buttons to display ONE of the code types.
    • Click Edit on CodePen in the upper right corner to fork this CodePen into your own account.
    • Find all the code associated with this sample in this GitHub repository.

    Proxy code

    In order to build your own version the sample app on this page, you must create and host your own proxy. (The proxies used by Brightcove Learning Services only accept requests from Brightcove domains.) A sample proxy, very similar to the one we use, but without the checks that block requests from non-Brightcove domains, can be found in this GitHub repository. You will also find basic instructions for using it there, and a more elaborate guide to building apps around the proxy in Using the REST APIs.
