Get paginated query results with the Wowza Streaming Cloud REST API

Learn how to get paginated results from REST API queries made in the Wowza Streaming Cloud™ service.

About paginated results


The Wowza Streaming Cloud REST API allows you to retrieve a paginated view of results from any GET request made to the following endpoints:

  • /live_streams
  • /players
  • /recordings
  • /schedules
  • /stream_sources
  • /stream_targets
  • /transcoders
  • /vod_streams

You can use the following sample request, making sure to:

  • Set the page and per_page query parameters to the page of the results that should be displayed and how many records should be included in a page.

Sample request

Endpoint Reference

curl -X GET \
-H "wsc-api-key: ${WSC_API_KEY}" \
-H "wsc-access-key: ${WSC_ACCESS_KEY}" \
"${WSC_HOST}/api/${WSC_VERSION}/live_streams/?page=1&per_page=25"

Sample response

The response includes a paginated list of live streams that shows 25 streams per page. The first page of results will display the 25 oldest streams.

{
  "live_streams": [
      {
          "id": "rtL9S9mf",
          "name": "My Live Stream",
          "created_at": "2020-03-23T17:40:34.000Z",
          "updated_at": "2020-03-25T01:16:12.000Z"
       },
       ...
  ],
  "pagination": {
    "payload_version": 1.0,
    "total_records": 541,
    "page": 1,
    "per_page": 25,
    "total_pages": 22,
    "page_first_index": 0,
    "page_last_index": 24
  }
}

Stream targets and VOD streams usage

Slightly different parameters are required when querying the usage/stream_targets and usage/vod_streams endpoints.

Note: The workflow described in this section is only valid for v1.5 of the REST API and later.

You can use the following sample request, making sure to:

  • Set the page and per_page query parameters to the page of the results that should be displayed and how many records should be included in a page.

Sample request

Endpoint Reference

curl -X GET \
-H "wsc-api-key: ${WSC_API_KEY}" \
-H "wsc-access-key: ${WSC_ACCESS_KEY}" \
"${WSC_HOST}/api/${WSC_VERSION}/usage/stream_targets?next_page_key=1lk0syln&per_page=10"

Sample response

The response includes a paginated list of stream targets that shows 10 stream targets per page. 

{
  "stream_targets": [
      {
          "id": "1bwvmtlv",
          "name": "My Stream Target",
          "archived": false,
          "type": "fastly",
          "unique_viewers": 0,
          "viewing_time": 0,
          "bytes": 2547
        },
        ...
      ],
  "pagination": {
      "payload_version": 2.0,
      "total_records": 269,
      "next_page_key": "2jj8syfl",
      "per_page": 10,
      "total_pages": 27
  }
