    This is a legacy API which has been hidden and will no longer be updated. We recommend using the new Auto Scaling API 3.0 which is standardized and faster.

    1. API Description

    This API (DescribeScheduledTask) is used to query the scheduled task information. You can specify the scaling group ID to query all the scheduled tasks under this group.
    Domain for API request: scaling.api.qcloud.com

    2. Input Parameters

    The following request parameter list only provides API request parameters. Common request parameters need to be added when the API is called. For more information, refer to Common Request Parameters. The Action field for this API is DescribeScheduledTask.

    Parameter Name Required Type Description
    scalingGroupId Yes String Scaling group ID, which is used for querying scheduled tasks for this scaling group. This parameter can be obtained by calling API Query Scaling Group List (DescribeScalingGroup).
