But when i try to get the content of the job ID


I get the following error

<response status="error" code="17">


    <line>show-> query -> id is unexpected </line>

I was able to duplicate the error you were seeing and was able to get the query results using the following command:



This command resulted in an error.

<response status="error" code="17">



<![CDATA[ show -> query -> result is unexpected ]]>





This command worked.


This command worked, too.

Tested in 5.0.3.

Your usage is correct. Can you confirm the job id value you provided is the same as the one returned by the previous query.
