Credit role

Note: Only Movida accounts with this feature enabled will expose this API.

A credit role resource represents the role of a credit in a piece of content. E.g. actor, director, producer, etc. Credit roles are created by BeBanjo upon request, there’s not UI for that yet.

This is how a credit role resource looks like in the API:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<credit-role>
  <id type="integer">1</id>
  <name>actor</name>
  <admits-character-name type="boolean">true</admits-character-name>
  <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/1"/>
</credit-role>
{
  "resource_type": "credit_role",
  "id": 1,
  "name": "actor",
  "admits_character_name": true,
  "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/1"
}

Valid attributes

  • id: Movida’s internal identifier for a credit role.

  • name (optional): a descriptive name for the role.

  • admits-character-name (optional): a boolean (true/false) to indicate if a credit with this role may supply or not a character name. Meaningful for actors, but not for directors, technical stuff, etc.

Getting the list of available credit roles

To return a list of all the credit roles available in one account, just send a GET request like the following:

$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles
$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password -H "Accept: application/json" https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<credit-roles type="array">
  <credit-role>
    <id type="integer">1</id>
    <name>actor</name>
    <admits-character-name type="boolean">true</admits-character-name>
    <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/1"/>
  </credit-role>
  <credit-role>
    <id type="integer">2</id>
    <name>director</name>
    <admits-character-name type="boolean">false</admits-character-name>
    <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/2"/>
  </credit-role>
  <credit-role>
    <id type="integer">3</id>
    <name>producer</name>
    <admits-character-name type="boolean">false</admits-character-name>
    <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/3"/>
  </credit-role>
</credit-roles>
{
  "entries": [
    {
      "resource_type": "credit_role",
      "id": 1,
      "name": "actor",
      "admits_character_name": true,
      "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/1"
    },
    {
      "resource_type": "credit_role",
      "id": 2,
      "name": "director",
      "admits_character_name": true,
      "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/2"
    },
    {
      "resource_type": "credit_role",
      "id": 3,
      "name": "producer",
      "admits_character_name": true,
      "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/3"
    }
  ]
}

Getting a specific credit role

This operation allows you to recover information about one specific credit role:

$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/1
$ curl --digest -u robot_user:password -H "Accept: application/json" https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/1
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<credit-role>
  <id type="integer">1</id>
  <name>actor</name>
  <admits-character-name type="boolean">true</admits-character-name>
  <link rel="self" href="https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/1"/>
</credit-role>
{
  "resource_type": "credit_role",
  "id": 1,
  "name": "actor",
  "admits_character_name": true,
  "self_link": "https://movida.bebanjo.net/api/credit_roles/1"
}
