View an Action

GET /api/v1.2/actions/(int: id)

Required Role

The following roles can make this API call:

  • A user who is part of the system-user/system-admin group.
  • A user invoking this API must be part of a group associated with a role that allows viewing a schedule information. See Managing Groups and Managing Roles for more information.


Response is a scheduled action. The action may or may not have an empty command child object. A command may be empty if dependencies were not satisfied.

This API differs from the View a Schedule’s Action. In that API, instead of the sequence_id of the action, it accepts the unique ID of the action within the schedule.


Goal: View the details about the first action of a schedule.

-H "Content-type: application/json" \
