Thank you, it works!

I would still expect this to be documented.

If I understood correctly, the documentation is generated from these Javadocs:

It only mentions the "target-directory" parameter, "cancel-job" is missing.

Hi Juho,

Sorry, I should have included an example. To cancel the job:

  curl -XPOST host:port/jobs/:jobid/savepoints -d '{"cancel-job": true}'  

Let me know if it works for you.

Thanks Gary. And what if I want to match the old behaviour ie. have the job cancelled after savepoint has been created? Maybe I saw some optional field for that purpose, that could be put into JSON payload of POST.. But this documentation doesn't cover it:

Hi Juho,

Thank you for testing the Apache Flink 1.5 release.

For FLIP-6 [1], the "cancel with savepoint" API was reworked. Unfortunately the
FLIP-6 REST API documentation still needs to be re-generated [2][3]. Under the
new API, you first issue a POST request against /jobs/:jobid/savepoints, and
then poll /jobs/:jobid/savepoints/:savepointtriggerid with HTTP GET. See [4] for
more details.

With a fresh build from release-1.5 branch, calling /cancel-with-savepoint fails with 404 Not Found.

The snapshot docs still mention /cancel-with-savepoint:

1. How can I achieve the same result as with GET /cancel-with-savepoint before?
2. Are the docs going to be updated?

It seems like it might be related to this:
