}

Response

The call is successful if "invocationResult" = "OK".

The nextPageToken property is a token used to retrieve the next page of results. To use it, append the nextPageToken key and value to your original request body. The token is valid for 10 minutes and the response keeps generating a new nextPageToken as long as there are more results to retrieve. Each subsequent request should use the nextPageToken sent back in the previous response. When nextPageToken is null in the response, the current page is the last one and there are no more entries to retrieve.

The following elements are provided in the result.scheduleExecutionList key.

scheduleId "5cad9c28a3ac17ff159d35b0" String Schedule's Id. The value is null when execution is launched.
