HMC REST API Framework supports invocation of long running operations through the use of Jobs.

For every Job there are two main semantics:
  1. Job Object
  2. Job Operation

On invoking any Job, a Job ID is returned to the user. This Job ID is to be used to poll the Status of the Job. After a job is completed, you must delete the job.
