API get images by Movie/Series ProviderID?


I’m starting to poke around in the API and I haven’t found a way to do this so I thought I’d ask.

Is there a way to pull TV/Movie related images using an external Provider id (tvdb, imdb, etc) instead of the internal Jellyfin IDs?

I’ve been able to search by name when I start in my TV folder item like this.
http://localhost:8096/emby/Users/<USERID>/Items?NameStartsWith=Game of Thrones&parentId=<TVFolderID>&api_key=<APIKEY>

I can pull an image after I have the JF itemID.

But I saw no providerID search filter. Let me know if I’m missing something, docs or otherwise.


You know, I don’t think it exists. The relationship between the provider ID and the item is probably only in the database.

I would try looking around to see if anyone has done this with Emby (up to version 3.5.2) and then see if that method works with Jellyfin.
