Wowza 4.2 REST API


Welcome Wowza REST API. Since Wowza 4.2 no need REST license anymore. However, I not found official REST API documentation, moreover.. I found only 2 articles on wowza forum :/




Seem REST API on Windows have issue.  but on Linux is work fine. here is some PHP code to call Wowza REST API.

create new apps

1. cURL command

curl -v -X POST --header 'Accept: application/json; charset=utf-8' --header 'Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8' http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/applications/testlive -d'
{
   "restURI": "http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/applications/testlive",
   "name": "testlive",
   "appType": "Live",
   "clientStreamReadAccess": "*",
   "clientStreamWriteAccess": "*",
   "description": "Testing our Rest Service",
   "streamConfig": {
      "restURI": "http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/applications/testlive/streamconfiguration",
      "streamType": "live"
   }
}'


2. PHP call REST API
$service_url = 'http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/applications/testlive';
$curl = curl_init($service_url);
$curl_post_data ='
{
   "restURI": "http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/applications/testlive",
   "name": "testlive",
   "appType": "Live",
   "clientStreamReadAccess": "*",
   "clientStreamWriteAccess": "*",
   "description": "Testing our Rest Service",
   "streamConfig": {
      "restURI": "http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/applications/testlive/streamconfiguration",
      "streamType": "live"
   }
}
';

$headers = array(
'Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8',
'Accept: application/json; charset=utf-8' 

);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, true);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $curl_post_data);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, true);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
$curl_response = curl_exec($curl); 
curl_close($curl);

echo $curl_response;


Result
