System-to-Person Automation API is an add-on resource library that lets you create transfer links for Share Portals using Media Shuttle’s API. Upload and download links created using the API can be automatically generated by in-house systems, commercial Media Asset Management (MAM) and Digital Asset Management (DAM) systems, or invoked from Manager+Agents.
Signiant’s System-to-Person API allows you to create webhooks that authorize your application to receive information about portal events.
Webhooks send subscription updates to a URL when a transfer finishes.
