Sample Job Run

This topic provides a sample job run.

As an example, let’s assume user Alice has created a project titled Risk Analysis. Under the Risk Analysis project, Alice has created a job with the ID, 208. Using curl, Alice can use her API Key (uysgxtj7jzkps96njextnxxmq05usp0b) to create an API request as follows:
curl -v -XPOST \
--user "uysgxtj7jzkps96njextnxxmq05usp0b:" --header "Content-type: application/json" \
--data "{\"environment\": {\"START_DATE\": \"2017-01-01\", \"END_DATE\": \"2017-01-31\"}}"
In this example, START_DATE and END_DATE are environment variables that are passed as parameters to the API request in a JSON object.

In the resulting HTTP request, curl automatically encodes the Authorization request header in base64 format.

* Connected to ( port 80 (#0)
