REST API

Introduction to the serverside.ai API

‚Äč

Important

The documentation assumes that you are familiar with a basic understanding of API interaction, OTT video-processing and video advertisement.

API Key

All access is protected with a customer-specific API Key, which is initially generated from within the serverside.ai application (Settings/Account). Be sure to save this key securely! It can be changed in the app, but never shown, as we only transmit and store an encrypted version.

Please copy the API-Key right after the creation and stored it on a save place.

Rate Limiting

The default limit of requests per minute is 200. This limit applies for the whole company.

If multiple users use the System those requests are taken into account as well as the requests via the REST API.

The HTTP header contains all information needed to throttle your request rate.

Example Response-Header:

x-rate-limit-limit:200
x-rate-limit-remaining:197
x-rate-limit-reset:1591618796445

Please contact support to request an increase in the limit for your company.
