The Jobs API is for Administrator use only. Do not use these endpoints on your customer-facing frontends.
Several PXM endpoints function as jobs.
When any of these endpoints are run, a job is automatically created.
Characteristics of Jobs
Jobs have the following characteristics:
Jobs are asynchronous.
Jobs have a different status, depending on where a job is in its lifecycle. See Job Lifecycle.
Jobs include the data used when an endpoint is run.
Jobs report messages and/or errors to help you understand:
- what changes a job implemented in Commerce.
- the reasons for any failed jobs.
See Jobs API Overview.
Jobs are processed one at a time. You can continue to send requests using endpoints that function as jobs, but those jobs are queued. In other words, Commerce looks for any jobs that have a status of PENDING and starts the job with the earliest created date. This process is repeated until all jobs are processed.
A job has the following lifecycle.
