Work.upload.lookup

From SafeCreativeWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Returns an upload URL and upload ID.

To upload a work you must use work.upload.begin, work.upload.chunk and work.upload.commit or upload the file by POST to an API upload servlet. These components are not available through the standard API endpoint (http://api.safecreative.org) but through dedicated upload servers. Before calling any of these components, you must call work.upload.lookup to get an upload server and id.
