Ensure the Custom ID is unique

No two programs may have the same custom ID.

Look up program by Custom ID

Use the program_custom_id_url_template value on your application resource to build a URL to send a request to. Here is a simplified sample app resource for client ID example-client-id showing that field:

{
  "id": "example-client-id",
  "url": "https://cf-blast.livelikecdn.com/api/v1/applications/example-client-id/",
  "program_custom_id_url_template": "https://cf-blast.livelikecdn.com/api/v1/program-by-custom-id/example-client-id/{custom_id}/"
}

Using that field, and a Custom ID of example-custom-id, the URL to a program using a Custom ID would look like:

https://cf-blast.livelikecdn.com/api/v1/program-by-custom-id/example-client-id/example-custom-id/
