Add Profile to Multiple Accounts

This sample app allows you to add a custom ingest profile to multiple Video Cloud accounts. You can either create a new profile and add it to all accounts, or select a profile from one account and add it to the other accounts.


The Ingest Profiles API allows you to create custom ingest profiles in only one account at a time. However, it is straightforward to iterate over a list of accounts and add the profile to each one.

Get credentials

To use the Ingest Profiles 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 Ingest Profiles API operation:

Ingest Profiles API Permissions
Ingest Profiles 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 Ingest Profiles API:

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.
