Class: Aws::MTurk::Client

Inherits:
Seahorse::Client::Base show all
Defined in:
(unknown)

Overview

An API client for Amazon Mechanical Turk. To construct a client, you need to configure a :region and :credentials.

mturk = Aws::MTurk::Client.new(
  region: region_name,
  credentials: credentials,
  # ...
)

See #initialize for a full list of supported configuration options.

Region

You can configure a default region in the following locations:

  • ENV['AWS_REGION']
  • Aws.config[:region]

Go here for a list of supported regions.

Credentials

Default credentials are loaded automatically from the following locations:

  • ENV['AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'] and ENV['AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY']
  • Aws.config[:credentials]
  • The shared credentials ini file at ~/.aws/credentials (more information)
  • From an instance profile when running on EC2

You can also construct a credentials object from one of the following classes:

Alternatively, you configure credentials with :access_key_id and :secret_access_key:

# load credentials from disk
creds = YAML.load(File.read('/path/to/secrets'))

Aws::MTurk::Client.new(
  access_key_id: creds['access_key_id'],
  secret_access_key: creds['secret_access_key']
)

Always load your credentials from outside your application. Avoid configuring credentials statically and never commit them to source control.

Instance Method Details

#accept_qualification_request(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The AcceptQualificationRequest operation approves a Worker's request for a Qualification.

Only the owner of the Qualification type can grant a Qualification request for that type.

A successful request for the AcceptQualificationRequest operation returns with no errors and an empty body.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.accept_qualification_request({
  qualification_request_id: "String", # required
  integer_value: 1,
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :qualification_request_id (required, String)

    The ID of the Qualification request, as returned by the GetQualificationRequests operation.

  • :integer_value (Integer)

    The value of the Qualification. You can omit this value if you are using the presence or absence of the Qualification as the basis for a HIT requirement.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#approve_assignment(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The ApproveAssignment operation approves the results of a completed assignment.

Approving an assignment initiates two payments from the Requester's Amazon.com account

  • The Worker who submitted the results is paid the reward specified in the HIT.

  • Amazon Mechanical Turk fees are debited.

If the Requester's account does not have adequate funds for these payments, the call to ApproveAssignment returns an exception, and the approval is not processed. You can include an optional feedback message with the approval, which the Worker can see in the Status section of the web site.

You can also call this operation for assignments that were previous rejected and approve them by explicitly overriding the previous rejection. This only works on rejected assignments that were submitted within the previous 30 days and only if the assignment's related HIT has not been deleted.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.approve_assignment({
  assignment_id: "EntityId", # required
  requester_feedback: "String",
  override_rejection: false,
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :assignment_id (required, String)

    The ID of the assignment. The assignment must correspond to a HIT created by the Requester.

  • :requester_feedback (String)

    A message for the Worker, which the Worker can see in the Status section of the web site.

  • :override_rejection (Boolean)

    A flag indicating that an assignment should be approved even if it was previously rejected. Defaults to False.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#associate_qualification_with_worker(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The AssociateQualificationWithWorker operation gives a Worker a Qualification. AssociateQualificationWithWorker does not require that the Worker submit a Qualification request. It gives the Qualification directly to the Worker.

You can only assign a Qualification of a Qualification type that you created (using the CreateQualificationType operation).

Note: AssociateQualificationWithWorker does not affect any pending Qualification requests for the Qualification by the Worker. If you assign a Qualification to a Worker, then later grant a Qualification request made by the Worker, the granting of the request may modify the Qualification score. To resolve a pending Qualification request without affecting the Qualification the Worker already has, reject the request with the RejectQualificationRequest operation.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.associate_qualification_with_worker({
  qualification_type_id: "EntityId", # required
  worker_id: "CustomerId", # required
  integer_value: 1,
  send_notification: false,
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :qualification_type_id (required, String)

    The ID of the Qualification type to use for the assigned Qualification.

  • :worker_id (required, String)

    The ID of the Worker to whom the Qualification is being assigned. Worker IDs are included with submitted HIT assignments and Qualification requests.

  • :integer_value (Integer)

    The value of the Qualification to assign.

  • :send_notification (Boolean)

    Specifies whether to send a notification email message to the Worker saying that the qualification was assigned to the Worker. Note: this is true by default.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#create_additional_assignments_for_hit(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The CreateAdditionalAssignmentsForHIT operation increases the maximum number of assignments of an existing HIT.

To extend the maximum number of assignments, specify the number of additional assignments.

  • HITs created with fewer than 10 assignments cannot be extended to have 10 or more assignments. Attempting to add assignments in a way that brings the total number of assignments for a HIT from fewer than 10 assignments to 10 or more assignments will result in an AWS.MechanicalTurk.InvalidMaximumAssignmentsIncrease exception.

  • HITs that were created before July 22, 2015 cannot be extended. Attempting to extend HITs that were created before July 22, 2015 will result in an AWS.MechanicalTurk.HITTooOldForExtension exception.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.create_additional_assignments_for_hit({
  hit_id: "EntityId", # required
  number_of_additional_assignments: 1, # required
  unique_request_token: "IdempotencyToken",
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :hit_id (required, String)

    The ID of the HIT to extend.

  • :number_of_additional_assignments (required, Integer)

    The number of additional assignments to request for this HIT.

  • :unique_request_token (String)

    A unique identifier for this request, which allows you to retry the call on error without extending the HIT multiple times. This is useful in cases such as network timeouts where it is unclear whether or not the call succeeded on the server. If the extend HIT already exists in the system from a previous call using the same UniqueRequestToken, subsequent calls will return an error with a message containing the request ID.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#create_hit(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateHITResponse

The CreateHIT operation creates a new Human Intelligence Task (HIT). The new HIT is made available for Workers to find and accept on the Amazon Mechanical Turk website.

This operation allows you to specify a new HIT by passing in values for the properties of the HIT, such as its title, reward amount and number of assignments. When you pass these values to CreateHIT, a new HIT is created for you, with a new HITTypeID. The HITTypeID can be used to create additional HITs in the future without needing to specify common parameters such as the title, description and reward amount each time.

An alternative way to create HITs is to first generate a HITTypeID using the CreateHITType operation and then call the CreateHITWithHITType operation. This is the recommended best practice for Requesters who are creating large numbers of HITs.

CreateHIT also supports several ways to provide question data: by providing a value for the Question parameter that fully specifies the contents of the HIT, or by providing a HitLayoutId and associated HitLayoutParameters.

If a HIT is created with 10 or more maximum assignments, there is an additional fee. For more information, see Amazon Mechanical Turk Pricing.

Options Hash (options):

  • :max_assignments (Integer)

    The number of times the HIT can be accepted and completed before the HIT becomes unavailable.

  • :auto_approval_delay_in_seconds (Integer)

    The number of seconds after an assignment for the HIT has been submitted, after which the assignment is considered Approved automatically unless the Requester explicitly rejects it.

  • :lifetime_in_seconds (required, Integer)

    An amount of time, in seconds, after which the HIT is no longer available for users to accept. After the lifetime of the HIT elapses, the HIT no longer appears in HIT searches, even if not all of the assignments for the HIT have been accepted.

  • :assignment_duration_in_seconds (required, Integer)

    The amount of time, in seconds, that a Worker has to complete the HIT after accepting it. If a Worker does not complete the assignment within the specified duration, the assignment is considered abandoned. If the HIT is still active (that is, its lifetime has not elapsed), the assignment becomes available for other users to find and accept.

  • :reward (required, String)

    The amount of money the Requester will pay a Worker for successfully completing the HIT.

  • :title (required, String)

    The title of the HIT. A title should be short and descriptive about the kind of task the HIT contains. On the Amazon Mechanical Turk web site, the HIT title appears in search results, and everywhere the HIT is mentioned.

  • :keywords (String)

    One or more words or phrases that describe the HIT, separated by commas. These words are used in searches to find HITs.

  • :description (required, String)

    A general description of the HIT. A description includes detailed information about the kind of task the HIT contains. On the Amazon Mechanical Turk web site, the HIT description appears in the expanded view of search results, and in the HIT and assignment screens. A good description gives the user enough information to evaluate the HIT before accepting it.

  • :question (String)

    The data the person completing the HIT uses to produce the results.

    Constraints: Must be a QuestionForm data structure, an ExternalQuestion data structure, or an HTMLQuestion data structure. The XML question data must not be larger than 64 kilobytes (65,535 bytes) in size, including whitespace.

    Either a Question parameter or a HITLayoutId parameter must be provided.

  • :requester_annotation (String)

    An arbitrary data field. The RequesterAnnotation parameter lets your application attach arbitrary data to the HIT for tracking purposes. For example, this parameter could be an identifier internal to the Requester\'s application that corresponds with the HIT.

    The RequesterAnnotation parameter for a HIT is only visible to the Requester who created the HIT. It is not shown to the Worker, or any other Requester.

    The RequesterAnnotation parameter may be different for each HIT you submit. It does not affect how your HITs are grouped.

  • :qualification_requirements (Array<Types::QualificationRequirement>)

    A condition that a Worker\'s Qualifications must meet before the Worker is allowed to accept and complete the HIT.

  • :unique_request_token (String)

    A unique identifier for this request which allows you to retry the call on error without creating duplicate HITs. This is useful in cases such as network timeouts where it is unclear whether or not the call succeeded on the server. If the HIT already exists in the system from a previous call using the same UniqueRequestToken, subsequent calls will return a AWS.MechanicalTurk.HitAlreadyExists error with a message containing the HITId.

    Note: It is your responsibility to ensure uniqueness of the token. The unique token expires after 24 hours. Subsequent calls using the same UniqueRequestToken made after the 24 hour limit could create duplicate HITs.

  • :assignment_review_policy (Types::ReviewPolicy)

    The Assignment-level Review Policy applies to the assignments under the HIT. You can specify for Mechanical Turk to take various actions based on the policy.

  • :hit_review_policy (Types::ReviewPolicy)

    The HIT-level Review Policy applies to the HIT. You can specify for Mechanical Turk to take various actions based on the policy.

  • :hit_layout_id (String)

    The HITLayoutId allows you to use a pre-existing HIT design with placeholder values and create an additional HIT by providing those values as HITLayoutParameters.

    Constraints: Either a Question parameter or a HITLayoutId parameter must be provided.

  • :hit_layout_parameters (Array<Types::HITLayoutParameter>)

    If the HITLayoutId is provided, any placeholder values must be filled in with values using the HITLayoutParameter structure. For more information, see HITLayout.

Returns:

See Also:

#create_hit_type(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateHITTypeResponse

The CreateHITType operation creates a new HIT type. This operation allows you to define a standard set of HIT properties to use when creating HITs. If you register a HIT type with values that match an existing HIT type, the HIT type ID of the existing type will be returned.

    Constraints: Must be a QuestionForm data structure, an ExternalQuestion data structure, or an HTMLQuestion data structure. The XML question data must not be larger than 64 kilobytes (65,535 bytes) in size, including whitespace.

    Either a Question parameter or a HITLayoutId parameter must be provided.

  • :requester_annotation (String)

    An arbitrary data field. The RequesterAnnotation parameter lets your application attach arbitrary data to the HIT for tracking purposes. For example, this parameter could be an identifier internal to the Requester\'s application that corresponds with the HIT.

    The RequesterAnnotation parameter for a HIT is only visible to the Requester who created the HIT. It is not shown to the Worker, or any other Requester.

    The RequesterAnnotation parameter may be different for each HIT you submit. It does not affect how your HITs are grouped.

  • :unique_request_token (String)

    A unique identifier for this request which allows you to retry the call on error without creating duplicate HITs. This is useful in cases such as network timeouts where it is unclear whether or not the call succeeded on the server. If the HIT already exists in the system from a previous call using the same UniqueRequestToken, subsequent calls will return a AWS.MechanicalTurk.HitAlreadyExists error with a message containing the HITId.

    Note: It is your responsibility to ensure uniqueness of the token. The unique token expires after 24 hours. Subsequent calls using the same UniqueRequestToken made after the 24 hour limit could create duplicate HITs.

  • :assignment_review_policy (Types::ReviewPolicy)

    The Assignment-level Review Policy applies to the assignments under the HIT. You can specify for Mechanical Turk to take various actions based on the policy.

  • :hit_review_policy (Types::ReviewPolicy)

    The HIT-level Review Policy applies to the HIT. You can specify for Mechanical Turk to take various actions based on the policy.

  • :hit_layout_id (String)

    The HITLayoutId allows you to use a pre-existing HIT design with placeholder values and create an additional HIT by providing those values as HITLayoutParameters.

    Constraints: Either a Question parameter or a HITLayoutId parameter must be provided.

  • :hit_layout_parameters (Array<Types::HITLayoutParameter>)

    If the HITLayoutId is provided, any placeholder values must be filled in with values using the HITLayoutParameter structure. For more information, see HITLayout.

Returns:

Options Hash (options):

  • :name (required, String)

    The name you give to the Qualification type. The type name is used to represent the Qualification to Workers, and to find the type using a Qualification type search. It must be unique across all of your Qualification types.

  • :keywords (String)

    One or more words or phrases that describe the Qualification type, separated by commas. The keywords of a type make the type easier to find during a search.

  • :retry_delay_in_seconds (Integer)

    The number of seconds that a Worker must wait after requesting a Qualification of the Qualification type before the worker can retry the Qualification request.

    Constraints: None. If not specified, retries are disabled and Workers can request a Qualification of this type only once, even if the Worker has not been granted the Qualification. It is not possible to disable retries for a Qualification type after it has been created with retries enabled. If you want to disable retries, you must delete existing retry-enabled Qualification type and then create a new Qualification type with retries disabled.

  • :test (String)

    The questions for the Qualification test a Worker must answer correctly to obtain a Qualification of this type. If this parameter is specified, TestDurationInSeconds must also be specified.

    Constraints: Must not be longer than 65535 bytes. Must be a QuestionForm data structure. This parameter cannot be specified if AutoGranted is true.

    Constraints: None. If not specified, the Worker may request the Qualification without answering any questions.

    The number of seconds the Worker has to complete the Qualification test, starting from the time the Worker requests the Qualification.

  • :auto_granted (Boolean)

    Specifies whether requests for the Qualification type are granted immediately, without prompting the Worker with a Qualification test.

    Constraints: If the Test parameter is specified, this parameter cannot be true.

  • :auto_granted_value (Integer)

    The Qualification value to use for automatically granted Qualifications. This parameter is used only if the AutoGranted parameter is true.

Returns:

  worker_id: "CustomerId", # required
  reason: "String", # required
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :worker_id (required, String)

    The ID of the Worker to block.

  • :reason (required, String)

    A message explaining the reason for blocking the Worker. This parameter enables you to keep track of your Workers. The Worker does not see this message.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#delete_hit(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The DeleteHIT operation is used to delete HIT that is no longer needed. Only the Requester who created the HIT can delete it.

You can only dispose of HITs that are in the Reviewable state, with all of their submitted assignments already either approved or rejected. If you call the DeleteHIT operation on a HIT that is not in the Reviewable state (for example, that has not expired, or still has active assignments), or on a HIT that is Reviewable but without all of its submitted assignments already approved or rejected, the service will return an error.

  • HITs are automatically disposed of after 120 days.

  • After you dispose of a HIT, you can no longer approve the HIT's rejected assignments.

  • Disposed HITs are not returned in results for the ListHITs operation.

  • Disposing HITs can improve the performance of operations such as ListReviewableHITs and ListHITs.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.delete_hit({
  hit_id: "EntityId", # required
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :hit_id (required, String)

    The ID of the HIT to be deleted.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#delete_qualification_type(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The DeleteQualificationType deletes a Qualification type and deletes any HIT types that are associated with the Qualification type.

This operation does not revoke Qualifications already assigned to Workers because the Qualifications might be needed for active HITs. If there are any pending requests for the Qualification type, Amazon Mechanical Turk rejects those requests. After you delete a Qualification type, you can no longer use it to create HITs or HIT types.

DeleteQualificationType must wait for all the HITs that use the deleted Qualification type to be deleted before completing. It may take up to 48 hours before DeleteQualificationType completes and the unique name of the Qualification type is available for reuse with CreateQualificationType.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.delete_qualification_type({
  qualification_type_id: "EntityId", # required
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :qualification_type_id (required, String)

    The ID of the QualificationType to dispose.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#delete_worker_block(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The DeleteWorkerBlock operation allows you to reinstate a blocked Worker to work on your HITs. This operation reverses the effects of the CreateWorkerBlock operation. You need the Worker ID to use this operation. If the Worker ID is missing or invalid, this operation fails and returns the message “WorkerId is invalid.” If the specified Worker is not blocked, this operation returns successfully.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.delete_worker_block({
  worker_id: "CustomerId", # required
  reason: "String",
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :worker_id (required, String)

#list_assignments_for_hit(options = {}) ⇒ Types::ListAssignmentsForHITResponse

The ListAssignmentsForHIT operation retrieves completed assignments for a HIT. You can use this operation to retrieve the results for a HIT.

You can get assignments for a HIT at any time, even if the HIT is not yet Reviewable. If a HIT requested multiple assignments, and has received some results but has not yet become Reviewable, you can still retrieve the partial results with this operation.

Use the AssignmentStatus parameter to control which set of assignments for a HIT are returned. The ListAssignmentsForHIT operation can return submitted assignments awaiting approval, or it can return assignments that have already been approved or rejected. You can set AssignmentStatus=Approved,Rejected to get assignments that have already been approved and rejected together in one result set.

Only the Requester who created the HIT can retrieve the assignments for that HIT.

Results are sorted and divided into numbered pages and the operation returns a single page of results. You can use the parameters of the operation to control sorting and pagination.

#send_bonus(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The SendBonus operation issues a payment of money from your account to a Worker. This payment happens separately from the reward you pay to the Worker when you approve the Worker's assignment. The SendBonus operation requires the Worker's ID and the assignment ID as parameters to initiate payment of the bonus. You must include a message that explains the reason for the bonus payment, as the Worker may not be expecting the payment. Amazon Mechanical Turk collects a fee for bonus payments, similar to the HIT listing fee. This operation fails if your account does not have enough funds to pay for both the bonus and the fees.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.send_bonus({
  worker_id: "CustomerId", # required
  bonus_amount: "CurrencyAmount", # required
  assignment_id: "EntityId", # required
  reason: "String", # required
  unique_request_token: "IdempotencyToken",
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :worker_id (required, String)

    The ID of the Worker being paid the bonus.

  • :bonus_amount (required, String)

    The Bonus amount is a US Dollar amount specified using a string (for example, \"5\" represents $5.00 USD and \"101.42\" represents $101.42 USD). Do not include currency symbols or currency codes.

  • :assignment_id (required, String)

    The ID of the assignment for which this bonus is paid.

  • :reason (required, String)

    A message that explains the reason for the bonus payment. The Worker receiving the bonus can see this message.

  • :unique_request_token (String)

    A unique identifier for this request, which allows you to retry the call on error without granting multiple bonuses. This is useful in cases such as network timeouts where it is unclear whether or not the call succeeded on the server. If the bonus already exists in the system from a previous call using the same UniqueRequestToken, subsequent calls will return an error with a message containing the request ID.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#send_test_event_notification(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The SendTestEventNotification operation causes Amazon Mechanical Turk to send a notification message as if a HIT event occurred, according to the provided notification specification. This allows you to test notifications without setting up notifications for a real HIT type and trying to trigger them using the website. When you call this operation, the service attempts to send the test notification immediately.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.send_test_event_notification({
  notification: { # required
    destination: "String", # required
    transport: "Email", # required, accepts Email, SQS, SNS

    event_types: ["AssignmentAccepted"], # required, accepts AssignmentAccepted, AssignmentAbandoned, AssignmentReturned, AssignmentSubmitted, AssignmentRejected, AssignmentApproved, HITCreated, HITExpired, HITReviewable, HITExtended, HITDisposed, Ping
  },
  test_event_type: "AssignmentAccepted", # required, accepts AssignmentAccepted, AssignmentAbandoned, AssignmentReturned, AssignmentSubmitted, AssignmentRejected, AssignmentApproved, HITCreated, HITExpired, HITReviewable, HITExtended, HITDisposed, Ping
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :notification (required, Types::NotificationSpecification)

    The notification specification to test. This value is identical to the value you would provide to the UpdateNotificationSettings operation when you establish the notification specification for a HIT type.

  • :test_event_type (required, String)

    The event to simulate to test the notification specification. This event is included in the test message even if the notification specification does not include the event type. The notification specification does not filter out the test event.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#update_expiration_for_hit(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The UpdateExpirationForHIT operation allows you update the expiration time of a HIT. If you update it to a time in the past, the HIT will be immediately expired.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.update_expiration_for_hit({
  hit_id: "EntityId", # required
  expire_at: Time.now, # required
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :hit_id (required, String)

    The HIT to update.

  • :expire_at (required, Time)

    The date and time at which you want the HIT to expire

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#update_hit_review_status(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The UpdateHITReviewStatus operation updates the status of a HIT. If the status is Reviewable, this operation can update the status to Reviewing, or it can revert a Reviewing HIT back to the Reviewable status.

See Also:

#update_hit_type_of_hit(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The UpdateHITTypeOfHIT operation allows you to change the HITType properties of a HIT. This operation disassociates the HIT from its old HITType properties and associates it with the new HITType properties. The HIT takes on the properties of the new HITType in place of the old ones.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.update_hit_type_of_hit({
  hit_id: "EntityId", # required
  hit_type_id: "EntityId", # required
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :hit_id (required, String)

    The HIT to update.

  • :hit_type_id (required, String)

    The ID of the new HIT type.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#update_notification_settings(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

The UpdateNotificationSettings operation creates, updates, disables or re-enables notifications for a HIT type. If you call the UpdateNotificationSettings operation for a HIT type that already has a notification specification, the operation replaces the old specification with a new one. You can call the UpdateNotificationSettings operation to enable or disable notifications for the HIT type, without having to modify the notification specification itself by providing updates to the Active status without specifying a new notification specification. To change the Active status of a HIT type's notifications, the HIT type must already have a notification specification, or one must be provided in the same call to UpdateNotificationSettings.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.update_notification_settings({
  hit_type_id: "EntityId", # required
  notification: {
    destination: "String", # required

  },
  active: false,
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :hit_type_id (required, String)

    The ID of the HIT type whose notification specification is being updated.

  • :notification (Types::NotificationSpecification)

    The notification specification for the HIT type.

  • :active (Boolean)

    Specifies whether notifications are sent for HITs of this HIT type, according to the notification specification. You must specify either the Notification parameter or the Active parameter for the call to UpdateNotificationSettings to succeed.

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

#update_qualification_type(options = {}) ⇒ Types::UpdateQualificationTypeResponse

The UpdateQualificationType operation modifies the attributes of an existing Qualification type, which is represented by a QualificationType data structure. Only the owner of a Qualification type can modify its attributes.

Most attributes of a Qualification type can be changed after the type has been created. However, the Name and Keywords fields cannot be modified. The RetryDelayInSeconds parameter can be modified or added to change the delay or to enable retries, but RetryDelayInSeconds cannot be used to disable retries.

You can use this operation to update the test for a Qualification type. The test is updated based on the values specified for the Test, TestDurationInSeconds and AnswerKey parameters. All three parameters specify the updated test. If you are updating the test for a type, you must specify the Test and TestDurationInSeconds parameters. The AnswerKey parameter is optional; omitting it specifies that the updated test does not have an answer key.

If you omit the Test parameter, the test for the Qualification type is unchanged. There is no way to remove a test from a Qualification type that has one. If the type already has a test, you cannot update it to be AutoGranted. If the Qualification type does not have a test and one is provided by an update, the type will henceforth have a test.

If you want to update the test duration or answer key for an existing test without changing the questions, you must specify a Test parameter with the original questions, along with the updated values.

If you provide an updated Test but no AnswerKey, the new test will not have an answer key. Requests for such Qualifications must be granted manually.

You can also update the AutoGranted and AutoGrantedValue attributes of the Qualification type.

Examples:

Request syntax with placeholder values


resp = client.update_qualification_type({
  qualification_type_id: "EntityId", # required
  description: "String",
  qualification_type_status: "Active", # accepts Active, Inactive

  • :retry_delay_in_seconds (Integer)

    The amount of time, in seconds, that Workers must wait after requesting a Qualification of the specified Qualification type before they can retry the Qualification request. It is not possible to disable retries for a Qualification type after it has been created with retries enabled. If you want to disable retries, you must dispose of the existing retry-enabled Qualification type using DisposeQualificationType and then create a new Qualification type with retries disabled using CreateQualificationType.

  • :auto_granted (Boolean)

    Specifies whether requests for the Qualification type are granted immediately, without prompting the Worker with a Qualification test.

    Constraints: If the Test parameter is specified, this parameter cannot be true.

  • :auto_granted_value (Integer)

#wait_until(waiter_name, params = {}) {|waiter| ... } ⇒ Boolean

Waiters polls an API operation until a resource enters a desired state.

Basic Usage

Waiters will poll until they are succesful, they fail by entering a terminal state, or until a maximum number of attempts are made.

# polls in a loop, sleeping between attempts client.waiter_until(waiter_name, params)

Configuration

You can configure the maximum number of polling attempts, and the delay (in seconds) between each polling attempt. You configure waiters by passing a block to #wait_until:

# poll for ~25 seconds
client.wait_until(...) do |w|
  w.max_attempts = 5
  w.delay = 5
end

Callbacks

You can be notified before each polling attempt and before each delay. If you throw :success or :failure from these callbacks, it will terminate the waiter.

started_at = Time.now
client.wait_until(...) do |w|

Handling Errors

When a waiter is successful, it returns true. When a waiter fails, it raises an error. All errors raised extend from Waiters::Errors::WaiterFailed.

begin
  client.wait_until(...)
rescue Aws::Waiters::Errors::WaiterFailed
  # resource did not enter the desired state in time
end

Parameters:

  • waiter_name (Symbol)

    The name of the waiter. See #waiter_names for a full list of supported waiters.

  • params (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    Additional request parameters. See the #waiter_names for a list of supported waiters and what request they call. The called request determines the list of accepted parameters.

Yield Parameters:

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    Returns true if the waiter was successful.

Raises:

  • (Errors::FailureStateError)

    Raised when the waiter terminates because the waiter has entered a state that it will not transition out of, preventing success.

  • (Errors::TooManyAttemptsError)

    Raised when the configured maximum number of attempts have been made, and the waiter is not yet successful.

  • (Errors::UnexpectedError)

    Raised when an error is encounted while polling for a resource that is not expected.

  • (Errors::NoSuchWaiterError)

    Raised when you request to wait for an unknown state.
