PATCH Request to Update Scheduler Retry Policy via REST API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using the Azure Management REST API, I'm trying to update (PATCH) an existing Scheduler job with a retry policy. The request is accepted but the json response object doesn't include the retry policy entries.

    In the case of an update, other changes I make are reflected in the response.


    Azure Scheduler job entity structure: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/azure/dn528941.aspx

    Azure Scheduler REST API ref: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn528946.aspx

    I've be using Burp Suite to quickly iterate through different requests, but I never see anything to suggest the retry policy has been created.

    What am I missing?


    The following request will create a new job name SampleJob20 (with no retry policy)

        PUT /<subid>/cloudservices/<cloudservicename>/resources/scheduler/~/JobCollections/<jobcollectionname>/jobs/SampleJob20?api-version=2014-04-01 HTTP/1.1
        Content-Type: application/json

        Host: management.core.windows.net
        Content-Length: 583
        
        
        
        {
            "startTime": "2013-01-30T12:08:00-08:00",
            "action":
            {
                "type": "http",
                "request":
                {
                    "uri": "http://bing.com/",
                    "method": "GET",
                    "headers": 
                    {
                        "Content-Type": "text/plain"
                    }
                }
            },
            "recurrence":
            {
                "frequency": "minute",
                "interval": 30,
                "count": 1000
            },
            "state": "enabled"
        }


    The response for this request is:

        HTTP/1.1 201 Created

        "executionCount":0,
        "failureCount":0,
        "faultedCount":0
        }
        }



    When I try and update this job with a retry policy. The response is missing the retry policy detail.

        PATCH /<subid>/cloudservices/<cloudservicename>/resources/scheduler/~/JobCollections/<jobcollectionname>/jobs/SampleJob20?api-version=2014-04-01 HTTP/1.1
        Content-Type: application/json
        x-ms-version: 2012-03-01
        Host: management.core.windows.net
        Content-Length: 451
        
        
        
        {
        "id": "SampleJob20",
        "action":
            {
                "type": "http",
           "request":
                {
                     "uri": "http://bing.com",
                     "method": "GET",
                     "headers": 
                     {
                         "Content-Type": "text/plain"
                     }
                },
        
           "retryPolicy": 
                   {
         "retryType":"fixed",
                  "retryInterval": "PT1M",
                  "retryCount": 3
                   }
            }
        }

    If I create a new job (PUT) with a retry policy the response contains the retry detail. However, the jobs retry policy cannot be updated either.

  • Thanks Adian.

    I have read this article. I can update other configuration using a PATCH request (state, url, errorAction) but not the retryPolicy.

    The only way I've been able to set a retryPolicy is using a PUT request. However, this means I need all the job details in the request.

    Many thanks for your response.
