The /v2/assets route deals with all types of assets.
When you create a new asset in the Backlot REST API, the asset_type property in the request body can specify any of the following values.
- ad: An ad is simply a video, marked as an ad in the Backlot UI.
- youtube: A video destined for YouTube
After an asset is created with [POST] /v2/assets (as described in ), in general you can update it in a variety of ways with [PATCH] /v2/assets or change its associations with [PUT] /v2/assets. See Routes and Attributes Common to All Asset Types.
