POST /api/v1/janitor

This will add a new Janitor Monkey event. The main purpose is to flag a resource as not being cleaned by Janitor Monkey (opt out the resource) or to remove such flag (opt in the resource). Input is in Json format.

To flag a resource as not being cleaned by Janitor Monkey:

$ curl http://localhost:8080/simianarmy/api/v1/janitor -d '{"eventType":"OPTOUT","resourceId":"foo"}'

To opt in the resource so it can be managed by Janitor Monkey again.

$ curl http://localhost:8080/simianarmy/api/v1/janitor -d '{"eventType":"OPTIN","resourceId":"foo"}'
You can’t perform that action at this time.
