NetX's File Retrieval and JSON/RPC APIs are the primary interfaces for communicating with NetX.

File Retrieval API

The File Retrieval API is limited to read-only calls in terms of accessing data. The File Retrieval API is the primary mechanism for retrieving files — asset originals, proxies (thumbnails, previews and zooms), asset views, and the like. The exception to this is repurposing; if you want to transcode and retrieve the output, you will need to use the JSON/RPC API.


The Public API is recommended for any new development. It provide the broadest number of methods, and uses JSON as the format exchange. Please refer to the Public API article for an introduction.
