After a job or an output file is completed, you can find out about it in several ways.
- We can send a HTTP POST request to your application with the details.
- We can send an email.
- You can request your notifications using the Zencoder Fetcher tool. This is useful when you are developing locally and Zencoder can’t reach your development server.
- You can check the Zencoder Dashboard for job status.
- You can check job status via a Job show API request.
The first two - outgoing HTTP or email notifications - are triggered by adding notification options to your Job create API request.
Note: Notifications are limited to 5 per output and job. Output notifications do not count towards the job total. Contact us at email@example.com if you need more.
