The output arguments in API response are null

Hello,

I am trying to execute a process through postman which as response should return the output arguments’ values, contained in my process.
When the job is executed through orchestrator or postman in the job details there are listed the output values, while in the response returned in Postman the
output arguments are “null” so are the input arguments.
Also the job is completed, but the state status in the postman response is “Pending” while in the jobs section in orchestrator is “Successful”. I tried to execute the stop job API, but i get the response from below.
Please take a look at the attached screenshots.
Is there anything I can do to solve this issue?

Thanks!

Hello!

That looks like a problem of timing.

If you are using POST​/odata​/Jobs​/UiPath.Server.Configuration.OData.StartJobs, then the command to start a Job will be sent, but the request doesn’t wait for the Job to finish, so the response doesn’t have the output results.

After you send that command, you need to wait for the Job to finish and then retrieve the arguments using the endpoint GET ​/odata​/Jobs(ID). This ID can be retrieved from the response of the first request that you made to start the Job.

Also, if it’s a Job that takes a lot of time, you need to make sue that it finished successfully before trying to get the result. For that, check if the field State of the response from GET ​/odata​/Jobs(ID) has the value Successful.
