Get Job API

The Get Job API provides the ability to get machine learning jobs in the cluster. It accepts a GetJobRequest object and responds with a GetJobResponse object.

Get Job Request

A GetJobRequest object gets can have any number of jobId or groupName entries. However, they all must be non-null. An empty list is the same as requesting for all jobs.

GetJobRequest request = new GetJobRequest("get-machine-learning-job1", "get-machine-learning-job*"); 
request.setAllowNoJobs(true); 

Constructing a new request referencing existing jobIds, can contain wildcards

Whether to ignore if a wildcard expression matches no jobs. (This includes _all string or when no jobs have been specified)

Get Job Response

long numberOfJobs = response.count(); 
List<Job> jobs = response.jobs(); 

getCount() from the GetJobResponse indicates the number of jobs found

getJobs() is the collection of machine learning Job objects found

Synchronous Execution

When executing a GetJobRequest in the following manner, the client waits for the GetJobResponse to be returned before continuing with code execution:

GetJobResponse response = client.machineLearning().getJob(request, RequestOptions.DEFAULT);

Synchronous calls may throw an IOException in case of either failing to parse the REST response in the high-level REST client, the request times out or similar cases where there is no response coming back from the server.

In cases where the server returns a 4xx or 5xx error code, the high-level client tries to parse the response body error details instead and then throws a generic ElasticsearchException and adds the original ResponseException as a suppressed exception to it.

Asynchronous Execution

Executing a GetJobRequest can also be done in an asynchronous fashion so that the client can return directly. Users need to specify how the response or potential failures will be handled by passing the request and a listener to the asynchronous get-job method:

client.machineLearning().getJobAsync(request, RequestOptions.DEFAULT, listener); 

The GetJobRequest to execute and the ActionListener to use when the execution completes

The asynchronous method does not block and returns immediately. Once it is completed the ActionListener is called back using the onResponse method if the execution successfully completed or using the onFailure method if it failed. Failure scenarios and expected exceptions are the same as in the synchronous execution case.

A typical listener for get-job looks like:

ActionListener<GetJobResponse> listener = new ActionListener<GetJobResponse>() {
    @Override
    public void onResponse(GetJobResponse response) {
        
    }

    @Override
    public void onFailure(Exception e) {
        
    }
};

Called when the execution is successfully completed.

Called when the whole GetJobRequest fails.
