If you are uploading content from your local storage to MediaSilo, then this request is the first step in the process. It returns all the information you need for the next step: a PUT command to Mediasilo’s S3 bucket. For a step-by-step guide to this process, please see Uploading Content from Your Local Storage.


If you are uploading content from cloud storage, then the Create upload ticket request is not required.

To create an upload ticket, you must provide a file name using the fileName body parameter. For example:

"fileName": "yosemite time lapse"  

This is the file name as it will be stored in MediaSilo’s S3 bucket. It does not have to be the actual name of the local file. The fileName parameter is required.
