How to check engine status using the REST API

REST API calls can be used to apply changes on the engine, such as START / STOP / RESTART/ etc.

There is no specific call to output engine status; however, it is still possible the check it by following these steps:

  1. Get the engine ID:

curl --request GET ' engine_name=YOUR_ENGINE_NAME&account=YOUR_ACCOUNT' --header 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN_VALUE'

curl --request GET '' --header 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN_VALUE'
