I wanted to share a few tips on how you can leverage the NACC API to query for your job status. Both job_name and job_number are optional, but neither, either or both can be specified for your query. Should you not supply either job_name or job_number, then the API will simply return the status of your last five jobs.
To try this out, post your requests to the following URL https://api.nimbix.net:4081/nimbix/nacc_jstatus.
Just in case you forgot your API key, you can always grab this via the NACC portal.
Job query example
"username" : "your_username",
"api-key" : "yourAPIkey",
"jobname" : "139043483194-job-name",
"jobnumber" : 12345
"request" : "status"
There’s a number of interesting possibilities you can do here once you have this information, you can integrate with an existing dashboard / DevOps tool-set, leverage this info for existing notification / eventing systems you have, or for internal billing and accounting systems.
What are the ways you’re leveraging this information, we’d love to hear from you?
