Content API powers a variety of different PA Media Products.

This page documents the current list of supported products offered by Content API.

Content Types

Each product supplies different types of content items in order to deliver the content required for that product.

For each content type (which is a combination of type and profile, for example story text) there is a link to a documentation page which gives examples in JSON, ATOM and RSS.

Selecting a product

If your Content API subscription only has access to a single product, then that product will be selected automatically for the responses of your Content API requests.

Customers that have multiple products can use the product query parameter to switch between the different products.

Each product detailed below contains a snippet of a Content API call to show how to supply this parameter for each product.
