Operations

API change history

The Operations API contains all the Video Indexer APIs, such as Upload video, Get insights, and other operations

Get Project Render Operation (PREVIEW)

This API is a preview API subject to preview terms available here. It’s not final and might change.
Gets the render operation of an existing project that was requested to render. Meant to be used to check the status of an ongoing render operation following a successful request to render a project. A render operation can be in one of the following states: InProgress/Cancelling/Succeeded/Failed/Canceled:
The state 'InProgress' is a non-terminal state that means the render operation is in progress, and cancellation can be requested using the cancellation API. While in this state, the project is render-locked, meaning until the render completes or cancellation is requested the project's video ranges can't be updated and it's not allowed to request render.
The state 'Cancelling' is a non-terminal state that means that cancellation was requested for the render operation but it hasn't completed yet. In this state the project is no longer render-locked, so its video ranges can be updated and it's allowed to request render. From this state the project doesn't necessarily transition to the 'Canceled' state, since it's possible render already completed by the time the cancellation request was acknowledged.
The state 'Canceled' is a terminal state that means that cancellation was requested for the render operation and the cancellation completed.
The state 'Failed' is a terminal state that means that the render operation has completed with failure during processing. In that case the response body will contain error information.
The state 'Succeeded' is a terminal state that means that the render operation has completed successfully. In that case the response body will contain the operation's result. A project is referred to as a rendered project if it has a render operation in this state.

Request URL

Request parameters

  • string

    Location indicates the Azure region to which the call should be routed
    See more details here

  • string

    See more details here

  • string

    The project id

    string

    Required. Should be given as parameter in URL query string or in Authorization header as Bearer token, and match the authorization scope of the call (Account or Project, with Read)

Request headers

  • (optional)
    string

    Format - uuid. A globally unique identifier (GUID) for the request which can be sent by client for instrumentation purposes. The server makes sure all logs associated with handling the request can be linked to the client request id so a client can provide this request id in support tickets so support engineers could find the logs linked to this particular request, so avoid using the same request id for different requests, including in retry scenarios.
