A bit more detail:

  • contextId
    • Can be one of the standard values which all content services should offer if applicable
      • myMusic Music which has been marked as favorites in the backend content service by current user
  • supportedTypes
    • Lists item types which can be added with addItem and removed with removeItem methods
    • See documentation of item attributes for more information of available types.
      • For example:
        • ["artist","track"]: Means that it's possible to add either tracks or artists to the myMusic context with the addItem method
        • ["artist"]: Means that it's only possible to add artists to the myMusic context
  • If the items array is empty, it means that it's not possible to use the addItem/removeItem methods for this content service
