Jobs API Methods

The Jobs API methods allow you to review and edit the metadata associated with the tests you are running on Sauce Labs. You can also stop tests, delete jobs, and filter lists of jobs by a variety of attributes, such as owner, time period, build, or environment.

RDC Jobs

These calls are specific to jobs running in simulation. For methods related to Real Device testing, see Real Device API Methods.

Refer to Getting Started for Authentication and Server information.
