Request Headers
Accept The expected MIME type of the request body. If the format? parameter is present, it takes precedence over the Accept header.
Content-type The MIME type of the data in the request body. Depending upon the value of the format parameter or Accept header, one of application/xml, application/json, or text/html.

Location If the request causes a restart, a Location header is included in the reponse. The header contains a path with which to construct a URL to usable to test when the restart has completed.

Response

Upon success, MarkLogic Server returns status code 201 (Created). If the task exists or if the payload is malformed, a status code of 400 (Bad Request) is returned. A status code of 401 (Unauthorized) is returned if the user does not have the necessary privileges.

Required Privileges

This operation requires the manage-admin role, or the following privilege:

http://marklogic.com/xdmp/privileges/manage-admin

The security role is required to set the task-user property.

Usage Notes

If your task is in the filesystem, rather than a database, do not include the task-database property. The task-start-time property must be in xs:time format ("24:00"). The task-type property is (minutely|hourly |daily|weekly|monthly|once). If not supplied, the default value is once. The task-days property is an array containing (sunday, monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday). The task-priority property is (normal|higher), if not supplied, default value is normal.

Note: The properties described here are for XML payloads. In general they are the same for JSON, with the exception that, in JSON, task-days is expressed in singular form. For example, in JSON, task-days is instead task-day and the format is as shown in the example below.
