Common Parameters and Headers
The following information is common to all operations that you might do related to Batch resources:
Specify the optional $select value as a list of properties to return for a resource.
Specify the optional $skiptoken value in the URI if a partial result is returned in a previous operation call. If the response contains an odata.nextLink element, the value of the odata.nextLink element includes a $skiptoken parameter with a value that specifies the starting point in the collection of entities for the next GET operation. The $skiptoken parameter must only be used on the URI contained in the value of the odata.nextLink element.
Specify the optional maxresults value in the URI to define the number of items to return in a response. The maximum number of items varies based on the resource:
A maximum of 100 certificates can be returned.
A maximum of 1000 pools can be returned.
A maximum of 1000 nodes can be returned.
A maximum of 1000 job schedules can be returned.
A maximum of 1000 jobs can be returned.
A maximum of 1000 tasks can be returned.
Set the Authorization header to a string that contains the authentication scheme, the account name, and the authentication signature. For more information, see Authenticate Requests to the Azure Batch Service.
Representation of Date/Time Values
Specifying Date/Time values in HTTP headers
The Batch service follows RFC 1123 for representation of date/time values in headers. This is the preferred format for HTTP/1.1 operations, as described in section 3.3 of the HTTP/1.1 Protocol Parameters specification. An example of this format is:
Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT
The following format is also supported, as described in the HTTP/1.1 protocol specification:
Sunday, 06-Nov-94 08:49:37 GMT
Both are represented in the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), also known as Greenwich Mean Time.
Specifying Date/Time values in URI Parameters and Request/Response Body
Date/time values in query parameters and request/response body are expressed as UTC times and must adhere to a valid ISO 8601 format. Supported ISO 8601 formats include the following:
For the date portion of these formats,
YYYY is a four-digit year representation,
MM is a two-digit month representation, and
DD is a two-digit day representation. For the time portion,
hh is the hour representation in 24-hour notation,
mm is the two-digit minute representation, and
ss is the two-digit second representation. A time designator
T separates the date and time portions of the string, while a time zone designator
TZD specifies a time zone.
