Content promotion

The content promotion resource is used to specify the promoted content a given clip applies to.

This is how a Content promotion looks through the API:

<content-promotion>
  <id type="integer">1</id>
  <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/1"/>
  <link rel="clip" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/5"/>
  <link rel="promoted_content" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/title_groups/3"/>
</content-promotion>
{
  "resource_type": "content_promotion",
  "id": 1,
  "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/1",
  "clip_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/5",
  "promoted_content_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/title_groups/3"
}

As you can see, a content promotion has a link to the clip and also to the promoted_content.

The self link is pointing to the content promotion itself, and it is a unique URL that will not change overtime.

Valid attributes

  • id (required): Movida internal identifier of the content promotion.

Get a single content promotion given its URL

The self link of a content promotion contains a URL that will allow us to fetch that individual content promotion:

$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/4
$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password -H "Accept: application/json" https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/4
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<content-promotion>
  <id type="integer">4</id>
  <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/4"/>
  <link rel="clip" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/8"/>
  <link rel="promoted_content" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/brands/1"/>
</content-promotion>
{
  "resource_type": "content_promotion",
  "id": 4,
  "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/4",
  "clip_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/8",
  "promoted_content_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/brands/1"
}

Get a List of all clips of a promotable resource

Currently in Movida there are three types of promotable resources: Title, Title group and Brand.

Clips are accessed from a promotable resource via content promotions.

As an example, inside a Title, one of the related link nodes is the clips node, identified by the rel attribute. Like here:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' ?>
<title>
  <!-- ... -->
  <link rel="clips" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/45606/clips"/>
  <!-- ... -->
</title>
{
  "resource_type": "title",
  "id": 45606,
  // ...
  "clips_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/45606/clips",
  // ...
}

If we follow that link we can fetch the list of all content promotions for that title.

$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/45606/clips
$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password -H "Accept: application/json" https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/45606/clips
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<content-promotions type='array'>
  <content-promotion>
    <id type="integer">4</id>
    <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/4"/>
    <link rel="clip" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/8"/>
    <link rel="promoted_content" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/45606"/>
  </content-promotion>
  <content-promotion>
    <id type="integer">5</id>
    <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/5"/>
    <link rel="clip" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/12"/>
    <link rel="promoted_content" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/45606"/>
  </content-promotion>
</content-promotions>
{
  "entries": [
    {
      "resource_type": "content_promotion",
      "id": 4,
      "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/4",
      "clip_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/8",
      "promoted_content_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/45606"
    },
    {
      "resource_type": "content_promotion",
      "id": 5,
      "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/5",
      "clip_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/12",
      "promoted_content_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/45606"
    }
  ]
}

The clips associated to this title are referenced in the clip node, identified by the rel attribute.

Adding a clip to a promotable resource

To add a clip, you just need to POST a proper XML/JSON content promotion representation (similar to the ones you get when fetching the clips for a promotable resource) to the clips URL resource of a promotable resource. That URL can be found in a link which rel attribute equals ‘clips’. The only required attribute is the promoted_content.

For example, this POST would add a clip to an episode (we’ll use curl’s @ option, which reads data to be posted from a file):

$ cat content-promotion.xml
$ cat content_promotion.json
<content-promotion>
  <link rel="clip" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/10"/>
</content-promotion>
{
  "resource_type": "content_promotion",
  "clip_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/10"
}
$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password -H "Content-Type: application/xml" -X POST -d @content-promotion.xml "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/3/clips"
$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -X POST -d @content_promotion.json "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/3/clips"

Movida will return the full XML of the content promotion just created:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<content-promotion>
  <id>10</id>
  <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/10"/>
  <link rel="clip" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/10"/>
  <link rel="promoted_content" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/3"/>
</content-promotion>
{
  "resource_type": "content_promotion",
  "id": 10,
  "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/10",
  "clip_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/10",
  "promoted_content_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/titles/3"
}

Deleting a content promotion

The following example shows how to destroy a particular content promotion. Only a DELETE HTTP request to its URL is required:

$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password -H "Content-Type: application/xml" -X DELETE "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/10"
$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -X DELETE "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/content_promotions/10"

The DELETE request doesn’t return anything, as that content promotion is now gone.

Deleting a content promotion doesn’t delete the clip or the promoted content associated.
