This code sample submits an image serving publish job to IPS and returns a job handle. Choose only one type of job in the request. Because userHandle was omitted, email notifications are sent to the user who submitted the job. This sample job runs immediately because execTime and execSchedule were omitted.


<submitJobParam xmlns="">
   <jobName>My Test Job</jobName>


<submitJobReturn xmlns="">
   <jobHandle>47|My Test Job|</jobHandle>


You can specify at most one of execTime and execSchedule. If neither is passed, the job runs immediately. You can use only one of the following:

  • imageServingPublishJob
  • imageRenderingPublishJob
  • videoPublishJob
  • serverDirectoryPublishJob
  • uploadDirectoryJob
  • uploadUrlsJob
