1.We need access token, so we operate according the instructions on the web page

WEB page content mentioned :

1.2.a. Combine the API Key and secret value with a colon between the two: :

1.2.b. Then, Base64 encode the result. Set the Authorization header to: Basic

1.3.a. Redirect the user to the OAuth2 Authorization URL....

1.a What is ?


1.b What does the YourClientAPIKey refer to? 


1.c We operate according to the URL of 1.3a,but it’s invalid

(Ex: = my client id &scope=api&redirect_url=https://www.xxxxxx.com/oauth/auth_v2.0.php&response_type=token&nonce=test)

2.Remote Recorder API requires API KEY, how to get it?

1.a What is ClientAPIKey?

Hi Dato,

First you'll need to be an administrator of your Panopto site. Then, you can expand the System menu and choose 'API Clients' to create one. You can use this to fulfill the rest of your steps. This article explains how to create an API Client:

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi Dato,

Let me add on top of Jay's response. Client ID and client secret of OAuth2 may be created according to Panopto's help article which Jay mentioned.

However, that works all Panopto's REST API, except Remote recorder device API endpoint (/api/v1/remoteRecorderAPI/remoteRecorder). That API endpoint is specifically prepared for Panopto's hardware partners.

Let us know if you have further questions.
