    Live Scheduler Notifications

    When creating workflows with the scheduler, you can optionally configure notifications.

    Introduction

    After completing a task, the scheduler will send a notification to the configured endpoint using http method POST with details on what action was performed and it's success/failure.

    You can also configure a pre-notification of an upcoming task. See the Live API Reference for details on specifying the notification url and settings, and note the differences for scheduling the start/stop times for an SEP job, and for scheduling clips:

    Start/Stop scheduler
    • The notification URL is defined at the top level of the request body object
    • Notifications are scheduled in the activation and deactivation objects (time in seconds before the event to send the notification)

    Example

    {
    	"job_id": "your Job ID",
    	"activation": {
    		"time_utc": 1612274100,
    		"notification": 600
    	},
    	"deactivation": {
    		"time_utc": 1612281600,
    		"notification": 600
    	},
    	"description": "My Tuesday broadcast",
    	"notification_url": "http://example.com/live/jobstartstop/callbacks"
    }
    Clips scheduler
    • The notification URL is defined at the top level of the request body object
    • Notifications are scheduled in the clip object (time in seconds before the task starts to send the notification)

    Example

    {
    	"job_id":  "your Job ID",
    	"description": "My Scheduled Clip",
    	"notification_url": "http://example.com/live/clip/callbacks",
    	"clip": {
    		"output": {
    			"label": "My Scheduled Clip",
    			"start_time": 1612878900,
    			"end_time": 1612879800,
    			"videocloud": {
    				"video": {
    					"name": "My Scheduled Clip"
    				}
    			}
    		},
    		"time_utc": 1612879800,
    		"notification": 600
    	}
    }
