Wowza Video REST API server response caching

Some Wowza Video REST API endpoints return a cached response if you make a duplicate GET request to the endpoint within a specified period of time. We recommend you make requests to these endpoints no more frequently than the specified cache time, since the data returned will be unchanged.

The following table shows specific endpoints and the amount of time responses are cached for GET requests to that endpoint.
