API Documentation: sevu.status

Synopsis

This API finds the status of a SEVU Ticket. This system allows you to lookup the status of any SEVU Ticket created by your account using the SEVU Ticket key that was returned by calling sevu.request. The ticket will show the criteria it was created with as well as information on last used date, # of uses remaining, and active status.

Example Request (JSON)

Example Code (PHP)

    $request = array(
        'command' => 'sevu.status',
        'api_key' => 'APX4GKLM0RKQLSP2FBO1ROPKSSW47DZE',
        'timestamp' => time(),
        'cdn' => 158,
        'key' => 'mystream.53ffc996dd39d5.39102367'
    );
    
        //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, 'https://api.scaleengine.net/stable/'); // 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 ($arrResponse) {
        //Operation completed successfully
        //TODO Add work here
        print_r($arrResponse);
    } else {
        //Operation failed
        echo 'An error occured processing your request:';
        print_r($response);
    }
