Insert an End Time in an Existing Ad Avail

You can insert an end time in the following situations:

  • To add an end time to a message that has not yet started if an end time was not initially included.

  • To cut short an ad avail that is in progress. The command can be used in this way if no end time was initially included or if it was included but you want to end early.


PUT <IP address of Live node>/live_events/<ID of event>/cue_point

Body of HTTP

The XML body contains one cue_point element containing the following tags:

Tag Sub-tag Type Value
event_id integer The event ID of the original POST cue_point (the request that did not include a duration).
return_offset integer The number of milliseconds to wait before inserting the ad avail.
