This web method is used to retrieve runs of trees for a specific source.  It is similar to the List Runs web method, but contains the details of only a single run. The URL for this web method contains the runs action scoped to the specified Source, followed by the ID of the specific run to retrieve.  An additional include parameter may be added to the body content to specify any child data to return with the run.


HTTP Request

Method: GET

URL: /app/api/v1/sources/{SOURCE}/runs/{RUN_ID}

Body Content:

    "include": ""


Notes:  The parts in the URL denoted by curly braces {} are called route parameters.  These are pieces of data that can be passed to the API as variables.

Example - Include visible tasks and task messages

This is an example showing how to retrieve the details for a run of a tree, along with all visible tasks and task messages.  This example does not use any authorization, so no headers need to be provided.

In this example, you can see the details of the run was returned, with one visible task.
