Priority for API calls

Discussion created by Karim_Azzouzi_8427 on Apr 26, 2017
Hi Support.. We have several monitoring scripts that use the CallAPI utility to run jobs in UC4. 

When the Automation Engine is busy (first thing in the morning), what we find is that these CallAPI's seem to take a long time to run. When normally they take a few seconds. 

We have set the jobs to priority 1 in the AE to see if that helps, but does not seem to make any difference. 

Are there any settings we can adjust to give CallAPI a higher priority when calls are made into the AE? 


My workaround as we can't handel the "CallAPI (AE API object)" priority's is to create a new QUEUE in which the "CallAPI (AE API object)"will run and set to this QUEUE the highest priority

You can set the priority for the new QUEUE in the CallApi ini file.
