The standard parameters are also supported.

A JSON object containing the job profile information. WebHCat passes along the information in the JobProfile object, which is subject to change from one Hadoop version to another. See the Hadoop documentation (API docs) for org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobProfile for more information.
The job ID.
The parent job ID.
The job completion percentage, for example "75% complete".
The job's exit value.
User name of the job creator.
The callback URL, if any.

The job is not immediately deleted, therefore the information returned may not reflect deletion, as in our example. Use GET jobs/:jobid to monitor the job and confirm that it is eventually deleted.
