After a request task is submitted, it is divided into multiple subtasks that are run in sequence. After the current subtask is complete, the next subtask starts to run. After all subtasks are complete, the request task is complete. If a request task is aborted due to one of the following issues, address the issue based on the error code and initiate the request task again:

  • The request task fails to be submitted.
  • After the request task is submitted, a subtask fails to run.
Status String success

The status of the current subtask. Valid values:

  • operating: The subtask is running.
  • success: The subtask succeeds.
  • failure: The subtask fails to run. For more information about the error details, see the Content parameter.
