    Not able to start a task via QRS. Error that we’re getting is: Cannot find a task with the following name

      We’re trying to use QRS to start a job. We’re authenticating using certificates which are assigned to a particular machine and user.


      This is the config that we’re using:


      var config = {
      authentication: 'certificates',
      host: '....',
      useSSL: true,
      cert: 'client.pem',
      key: 'client_key.pem',
      ca: 'root.pem',
      port: 4242,
      headerKey: 'X-Qlik-User',
      headerValue: 'UserDirectory=Internal;UserId=....'



      We tried doing POST requests to these end points:


      /qrs/task/ <task id>/start



      But the result is similar to this one.
