Set Job Retries Async Historic Query Based (POST)

Create a batch to set retries of jobs asynchronously based on a historic process instance query.


POST /process-instance/job-retries-historic-query-based


Request Body

A JSON object with the following properties:

Name Description
processInstances A list of process instance ids to fetch jobs, for which retries will be set.
historicProcessInstanceQuery A historic process instance query like the request body described by POST /history/process-instance .
retries An integer representing the number of retries. Please note that the value cannot be negative or null.

Response Body

A JSON object corresponding to the Batch interface in the engine. Its properties are as follows:

Name Value Description
id String The id of the batch.
type String The type of the batch. See the User Guide for more information about batch types.
totalJobs Number The total jobs of a batch is the number of batch execution jobs required to complete the batch.
jobsCreated Number The number of batch execution jobs already created by the seed job.
batchJobsPerSeed Number The number of batch execution jobs created per seed job invocation. The batch seed job is invoked until it has created all batch execution jobs required by the batch (see totalJobs property).
invocationsPerBatchJob Number Every batch execution job invokes the command executed by the batch invocationsPerBatchJob times. E.g., for a process instance migration batch this specifies the number of process instances which are migrated per batch execution job.
seedJobDefinitionId String The job definition id for the seed jobs of this batch.
batchJobDefinitionId String The job definition id for the batch execution jobs of this batch.
suspended Boolean Indicates whether this batch is suspended or not.
tenantId String The tenant id of the batch.

Response Codes

Code Media type Description
200 application/json Request successful.
400 application/json Returned if some of the query parameters are invalid, e. g. if neither processInstances, nor processInstanceQuery is present. Or if the retry count is not specified. See the Introduction for the error response format.
