Brightspot Integrations Guide

Configuring the JW Player integration

You can configure integrated search with JW Player at the Global level or the site level. Global configurations are inherited by all sites, and site-level configurations override Global configurations. This topic explains how to configure this integrated search at the Global level.

The configuration in this topic is often done in parallel with the associated configuration in the JW Player console. Consider performing this procedure along with the one described in Creating API credentials in JW Player.

To configure integrated search with JW Player:

  1. In your JW Player console, obtain your client secret, site ID, player ID, and preview player ID.
  2. Click menu> Admin > Sites & Settings > Sites > Global.
  3. Click search, located to the left of more_horiz, and type JW Player.
  4. In the Global Import Frequency field, enter the interval in minutes between which Brightspot imports videos added to JW Player.
    Frequent imports keep your Brightspot video inventory up to date, but they may also cause an increase in resource load. The default frequency is every minute.
  5. Under Settings, click add_circle_outline and select Create New.
  6. In the Internal Name field, enter an internal name. Brightspot uses this name in selection fields.
  7. In the Client Secret, Site ID, Player ID, and Preview Player ID fields, enter the credentials from step 1.
  8. Expand Import, and make the following settings:
    • Ingestion Run Record—Read-only field displaying the times when the importer last checked for new videos in JW Player, and when the importer last ingested a video into Brightspot.
    • Import Enabled—Toggle on to import videos from your JW Player account that were not previously imported. If importing JW Player videos for the first time, toggle this field on.
    • Full Import Enabled—Toggle on to import all videos from your JW Player account, including videos that were previously imported. This field is ignored if the Import Enabled field is toggled off.
    • Import UserBrightspot records the selected user as the one who initiates the import from JW Player.
  9. Expand Miscellaneous, and toggle on Debug Enabled if you want to include informational messages in the Brightspot log.
  10. Click Save.
  11. Click Back.
  12. From the Settings list, select the integration you created.
