Set Job Definition Priority by Id

Sets an overriding execution priority for jobs with the given definition id. Optionally, the priorities of all the definition’s existing jobs are updated accordingly. The priority can be reset by setting it to null, meaning that a new job’s priority will not be determined based on its definition’s priority any longer. See the user guide on job prioritization for details.


PUT /job-definition/{id}/jobPriority
