There are two types of assets:

We will cover adding “URL Assets” here. For uploading files, view this API page.


Creating URL assets

URL Assets require three fields. To create a URL asset, send a POST request to:

https://app.digital-downloads.com/api/v1/assets/store

Request

JSON
{
    "filename": "My new book",
    "size": "10MB",
    "url": "https://www.my-website.com/download/my-book.pdf"
}

Response

JSON
{
    "data": {
        "id": "82664d96-6dfd-4343-96b0-05c46f412a5b",
        "filename": "My new book",
        "size": "10MB",
        "is_file": false,
        "is_link": true,
        "url": "https://www.my-website.com/download/my-book.pdf"
    }
