restAPI to create a Wowza CDN stream target

Hi Wowza,

I have WSE 4.7.8 and my application communicates with the engine via restFul API.

I have a couple of rtsp camera I want to transcode and send to the Wowza CDN.

I already have a Cloud account and everything is fine when I configure the system from the manager.

The issue comes when I try to integrate the solution using the rest API.

I saw this article:

but this APi doesn’t work for me:

curl -X POST \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "wsc-api-key: ${WSC_API_KEY}" \
-H "wsc-access-key: ${WSC_ACCESS_KEY}" \
-d '{
   "stream_target_akamai": {
     "name": "MyCloudHLStarget",
     "provider": "akamai_cupertino"
}' "${WSC_HOST}/api/${WSC_VERSION}/stream_targets/akamai"

Can you please double check this API is still working and this is the right documentation.

Moreover, where should I inset the Cloud username and password to be used for the CDN ?

Thank you for the help,


Hi @Mark Clevelland, when you say passwords, are you referring to the keys? That is what you use to authenticate for that workflow. Or do you mean how to authenticate the RTSP source? I had the Cloud Product Manager take a peek and there are no issues with the docs and it’s al working fine. If you want to sed a support ticket, an engineer can walk you through the setup.

I can share this tutorial as well.

Let me see if I can find a video tutorial showing all the steps.

Hi Rose,

thank you for your response.

The link you included is for pushing the stream from Engine to Cloud.

Indeed, Im trying to push the stream from Engine to the Wowza CDN.

When I do this operation manually using the Engine Manager, everything works fine.

It’s only when I use the Rest API following this tutorial:

The API doesn’t work for me.

It always returns 404:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>


The server has not found anything matching the request URI

Did you say you have tested this API and it works fine for you ?


Here you go @Mark Clevelland…these two docs are the ones that you need:

Hope that helps and please know that you can always submit a support ticket to get free assistance from an engineer in setting it up.

I didn’t, but I asked our Cloud engineer if the docs were correct and he said there were no reports of any bugs.

If you’d like your workflow tested we’d be happy to do so for free in a ticket. Support can’t debug in forums.

Thank you Rose,

the link you gave me works fine and I was able to create a CDN stream target.

Thanks for your help

Oh I’m so glad it worked out for you. Thanks for letting me know.
