Batch job‎ > ‎

Batch job start

Once a batch job has successfully been imported and configured, it can be started. The batch job will be started by the request-Id or the user-defined name with the action start.

A batch job can consists of three different tasks:
- Geocoding of addresses (geocoding)
- Assigning customer addresses to destination addresses (routing)
- Creation of the maps (map_creation)

GEOcoding and Routing:

action=start 

HTTP-GET-Call
https://maps1.locr.com/batch-processing/job_v2.php?action=start&requestid=<id>&to_dos=geocoding,routing

The individual jobs must be performed in the right order. This can be done by individual batch jobs sequentially or with a common batch job.

Parameter:
to_dos=<>
  • geocoding
  • routing
  • Combination from the first 3 parameter, separated by comma: geocoding,routing

Maps Creation:

There is an additional parameter for the map creation for a free of charge 20-maps-test:
action=start_test_run 

to_dos
=<>
  • map_creation
To start the complete map production use the "action=start" with parameter "map_creation". The start of a map production is chargeable! The maps licenses will be taken from the user's pre-bought maps package!
To confirm this through the API, the first call of the URL with the parameter "map_creation" returns a token. This Token must be passed with a renewed call!

Start HTTP-GET-Call:
https://maps1.locr.com/batch-processing/job.php?action=start&requestid=<id>&to_dos=map_creation

HTTP-GET URL to start complete maps production:


Note:
By using area maps (locr LOCALmaps) the second step "routing" is not possible

Example return:
