Obtaining the current recording for a given recorder ID

We are trying to determine the best way to fulfill a client's request using the REST API. 

Issue Overview:

  • We start recordings using the POST /API/v1/scheduledRecordings command, which provides us with a recording ID.
  • /api/v1/scheduledRecordings
  • The Recording ID is crucial for managing recordings, such as fetching the recording details or stopping the recording. 
  • /api/v1/scheduledRecordings/{id}
  • Our challenge arises when recordings are initiated from the Web interface or are pre-scheduled. Under these circumstances, we lack a straightforward method to obtain the current recording ID for a given recorder.


  1. Is there a specific API call or method to retrieve the current recording ID for recordings started via the Web or scheduled in advance?
  2. We do have the Recorder ID

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Hi Jason,

    Unfortunately, we do not have that ability in Panopto's Public REST API, but it is on our list to add in the future.

    We do have a Public SOAP API endpoint that will allow you to retrieve all scheduled recordings for a remote recorder by the remote recorder ID. You can use the IRemoteRecorderManagement.GetRemoteRecordersById SOAP API endpoint, passing in the ID of the remote recorder, and it should return the remote recorder information, including a ScheduledRecordings property that contains a list of the recording IDs that are currently scheduled to use that remote recorder.

    I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any other questions.
