Help setting up a one-off job?

I’m lost with the one-off job documentation. It says they’re based on an existing webservice (which takes an HTTP API call to a specific route), but how can I exactly run an existing route as a job? I don’t see the relation between a route and a “starting command”…

Hello again,

A one-off job requires an existing service to be run against. If that service itself doesn’t need to be running continuously, it can be suspended and still have jobs run against it (as long as the service is suspended with a paid instance type).

You don’t pass routes to a job. You pass a command, e.g. node process_my_video.js

Great. Looks easy enough and just what I was looking for. Will try it out.
