Server API - Get Preset Info by Workflow

Last Updated: Dec 16, 2014 03:23PM PST
Returns a collection of preset meta-data (descriptive information) about presets in the Squeeze Server preset library based on the workflow pattern. The actual preset data is not returned. You can specify as much or as little of a workflow string as you wish. For example, if you specify just the workflow /web/ then information about all web presets will be returned. If you specify the root workflow and a sub category, such as /web/flash 8/ then all presets that have a workflow that starts with /web/flash 8/ will be returned, such as /web/flash 8/streaming/ and /web/flash 8/progressive/.
