Account Management APIs

The Account Management APIs include endpoints for configuring and manipulating your Pulse account settings, ad serving settings, the clients you work with, and your targeting templates, before you actually start booking campaigns.

Insertion Policy API
Note: The Insertion Policy API works only with the new Insertion Policy functionality, which needs to be enabled for your account.
Create an Insertion Policy and target it against tags, categories, or a precise combination of tags and categories. When selected, the new Insertion Policy overrides the default category-based Ad Insertion Policy.
Targeting Template API Targeting templates are used to create the targeting rules once so you can easily apply them to your campaigns or goals.
Categories and Content Partners API

Categories in Pulse are used to organise your video content in a tree structure, by creating categories and subcategories.

Content partners refer to content owned by a third party for revenue sharing deals.

Shares is an old term used for specific categories/sub-categories and specific content partners in Pulse.

Note: Currently, the new Category requests and Content partner requests are read-only, while the old Share requests are read-write.
Site API The Site endpoint describes the configuration of your Pulse account and allows you to retrieve your site settings (for example, the available formats, account time zone and language settings, default campaign priority and frontload settings) and global targeting rules.
