    Hi,
    Below are some notes.
    If you are at ESP 11.4 the WEBPORT is the only option.  This is a port in the Workstation server. Let me know if you need help with this.
    I do not have a Python example but you should be able to modify the syntax from either the curl or Perl examples.

    In the examples below substitute the command that is shown for an AJ(APPLJOB) command with the correct syntax. The link is below.  The difficult part is how to make sure that the job in the correct application generation is held.  This generation number could be passed down into the script.

    curl 
    curl -X POST -u POWDO03:An0ther -i --basic --data '{"info":{"status":"req","cont":"eom","type":"command"},"data":{"request":"PASSWORD UPDATE USER(useridhere) PASSWORD(passwordhere)"}}' http://mainfame.xx.com:6167/command

    Perl
    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use LWP::UserAgent;
    use JSON;
    #use Data::Dumper;

    $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;

    my $req = HTTP::Request->new(
    POST => 'http://system:6167/command');
    $req->authorization_basic('useridhere', 'passwordhere');
    $req->content_type('application/json');
    $req->content('{"info":{"status":"req","cont":"eom","type":"command"},"data":{"request":"AGENT - LIST"}}');
    my $res =
    my $res = $ua->request($req);

    my $result = decode_json($res->content);

    print "status " . $result->{'info'}->{'status'} . "\n" ;
    for $i ( 0 .. $#{$result->{'data'}->{'list'}} ) {
    print "$i " . $result->{'data'}->{'list'}[$i] . "\n" ;
    }

    print "\n";

    Note:
    In ESP 12.0 there is a new restful interface but this functionality is not enabled yet.

    Let me know if you have questions

    Hi,
    Below is an example of a Perl script that HOLDs a job.

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use LWP::UserAgent;
    use JSON;
    #use Data::Dumper;

    $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;

    my $req = HTTP::Request->new(
    POST => 'http://system.xx.com:6165/command');
    $req->authorization_basic('useridhere', 'passwordhere');
    $req->content_type('application/json');
    $req->content('{"info":{"status":"req","cont":"eom","type":"command"},"data":{"request":"AJ DPTST020 HOLD APPL(TEMPLATE.1381)"}}');
    my $res =
    my $res = $ua->request($req);

    #print $res->as_string;
    #print $res->content;
    #print $res->headers->server;
    #print Dumper $res;
    #print "\n";

    my $result = decode_json($res->content);

    print "status " . $result->{'info'}->{'status'} . "\n" ;
    for $i ( 0 .. $#{$result->{'data'}->{'list'}} ) {
    print "$i " . $result->{'data'}->{'list'}[$i] . "\n" ;
    }

    print "\n";

    Hi,
    Below is the Python version of the REST all to ESP.
    #########################################################################

    import requests
    from requests.auth import HTTPBasicAuth

    data={
    "info":{
    "status":"req",
    "cont":"eom",
    "type":"command"
    },
    "data":{
    "request":"AJ DONJOB.TEST HOLD APPL(TEMPLATE.399"
    }
    }
    x = requests.post(
    url = "http://XX11.yy.address.com.net:6167/command",
    auth=HTTPBasicAuth('useridhere', 'password'),
    json=data
    )

    print(x.text)

    Hi,
    Is the port correct?  This should be the port number for the WEBPORT defined in the ESP Workstation parm member. The WEBPORT port number can be found by looking at the ESPWSS STC logs and looking for WEBPORT.

     What happens when you put URL into the browser address field. It should return something like the line below.
    {"info":{"status":"fail","type":"."},"data":{"status":405,"code":405001,"message":"Method not allowed. GET not supported."}}

    Let me know if that does not help

    Hi powell,

    I have a ques. So where we are giving the port number, in that python code.
    We are providing URL, USERID, PASSWORD, JOB NAME. these are the only fields we are working on wright.

    Could you be specific in that port concept. For my understanding purpose.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    Hi,
    You need to contact the ESP administrator.  They will need to have the ESPWSS started task running and have a WEBPORT defined. They will be able to provide the port number.  The port number is probably between 1 and approximately 30,000.

    Send the administrator the statement above.  They will let you know whether WEBPORT is defined and the port number.
