Specific Information

  • If overwrite is set to false or not specified, an existing playlist will never be overwritten, a controller can use this if it want to be sure to create a new playlist.
  • If overwrite is set to true any existing playlist with same playlistId (if specified) or playlistName (if playlistId is not specified) will be overwritten
  • If playlistId is not specified a unique identity will be generated in the service and returned if the operation succeeds
  • The playlistName attribute must be unique in the context of current user. Trying to call this function without having overwrite=true with the same name as an existing playlist will throw an error. Trying to call this function with overwrite=true and providing both playlistId and playlistName where the playlistName value matches another playlist will also throw an error.
  • For more details about individual parameters in beneath the track structure see Content Access Protocol findItems method.
