Kaltura XML Schema
Kaltura XML Schema Definitions (XSDs) are standard W3C XSD version 1.0 formatted documents that define the structure of Kaltura’s XML-formatted integration interfaces.
Publishers and developers may use the schemas when applying or developing XML-based content management-related integrations with the Kaltura Platform. The Kaltura XML-based interfaces related to content management include bulk content ingestion, cue points handling, and content syndication.
Each XML schema:
- Defines XML elements and attributes
- Defines whether the element or attribute is required or optional, and the maximum number of appearances.
- Defines the content type of the XML element or attribute
- Defines the sequence order of the XML element or attribute within the XML
- Includes descriptions and examples of XML elements and attributes
The following XML types are supported:
- XMLs that are generated by the Kaltura server and as such are fully compliant with their schema definition.
- Examples: Syndication Feed XMLs, Bulk Upload Results XMLs, Cue Point Serve XMLs
- XMLs that are submitted to the Kaltura server
- Examples: Bulk Upload XMLs, Cue Point Ingest XMLs, Drop Folder XMLs
- Each XML document and file submitted to the Kaltura server is validated against its schema to ensure that a correct server action is committed. The following levels of validation apply:
- XML structure validation (including inspection of XML illegal characters such as: &, <, >, ’, ”, (, )
- Compliance of the XML with its schema, including element appearance, structure, and order
- Application level validation, including compliance of XML values with system and account-specific settings
