Disconnects a PushPublish session. PushPublish sessions that have been stored using the pushpublish.add API can be disconnected by providing the app, instance, and push service ID. If a PushPublish session was created using pushpublish.connect or the push service was removed and now needs to be stopped, the app, instance, and entry name of the session can be used to disconnect a session that is not associated to a push service ID. The and stream.details commands will return stream data including pushpublish sessions that are currently running on the application or stream respectively. The entry name can be retrieved from these details and then used with this API to disconnect the session. To disconnect all pushes set entry name to *.

Example Code (PHP)

	$request = array(
		'command' => 'pushpublish.disconnect',
		'timestamp' => time(),
		'cdn' => 158,
		/* disconnect using stored details */
		'push_service_id' => 1234,
		'app' => 'demo-origin', // optional, unless manually connected
		'inst' => 'live', // optional, unless manually connected
		'stream' => 'stream1', // optional, unless manually connected
		/* disconnect using entry name */
		'app' => 'demo-origin',
		'inst' => 'live',
		'entry_name' => 'session_1',
		'origin_url' => '', // optional
	    //Create request signature
    $json_request = json_encode($request);
    $sig = base64_encode(hash_hmac('sha256', $json_request,
        '8fc8c48da81e6a2a06a9556379bf798af508dc0792497c678b4c3532ba8b637f', true));
    $request['signature'] = $sig;
    $json_request = json_encode($request);
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, ''); // Set the URL
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true); // Perform a POST
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); // If not set, curl prints output to the browser
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false); // If set, curl returns headers as part of the data stream
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, array('json' => $json_request)); //'Json' string or 'PHP' serialized return
    //If your PHP host does not have a proper SSL certificate bundle, you will need to turn off SSL Certificate Verification
    //This is dangerous, and should only be done temporarily until a proper certificate bundle can be installed
    //curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false); // Turns off verification of the SSL certificate.
    //curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false); // Turns off verification of the SSL certificate.
    $response = curl_exec($ch); //Execute the API Call
    if (!$response) {
        die('Failed to connect to ScaleEngine API');
    //Decode the response as an associative array 
    $arrResponse = json_decode($response, true); 
    if ($arrResponse) {
        //Operation completed successfully
        //TODO Add work here
    } else {
        //Operation failed
        echo 'An error occured processing your request:';
