Live Entities
A live_entity contains the information required for Uiza to successfully allocate resources to power the live_entity's live broadcasting sessions. You can reuse a live_entity and broadcast multiple live sessions sequentially.
The API allows you to create, delete, and update a live_entity. The list of your all live entities or any individual live_entity can also be retrieved via Live Entity APIs.
