job request

A job request is an HTTPS request to a service that starts a server-side operation (or job) with a long duration. A job request returns a job ID that is used by client applications to make subsequent HTTPS requests to determine job status updates and, when it is complete, to download the final job output. Job requests are used for longer, typically complex operations; shorter operations typically use a direct request. The routing service supports both direct requests and job requests.
