pushAntiGateVariable: submit a variable value for AntiGate task

AntiGate tasks have a feature: variable values can be submitted later, after a task was created. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Add a step "WAIT_FOR_VARIABLE_VALUE" to your template and specify variable name as a permanent value.
  2. As all the variable values should be sent to createTask method, substitute variable value with a string "_WAIT_FOR_IT_".

If your task creation request could look something like this:

          curl -i -H "Accept: application/json" \
     -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
     -X POST -d '{
            "templateName":"Template name here",
            "variables": {
                "other_var1":"some value",
                "other_var2":"some value"
}' https://api.anti-captcha.com/createTask

Then a request updating variable "my_late_variable" should look like this:

          curl -i -H "Accept: application/json" \
     -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
     -X POST -d '{
    "value":"The value which worker should be waiting for"
}' https://api.anti-captcha.com/pushAntiGateVariable
