hit

annotation

An optional character string specifying the value of the RequesterAnnotation field for a batch of HITs. This can be used to approve all assignments for all HITs from a “batch” created in the online Requester User Interface (RUI). To use a batch ID, the batch must be written in a character string of the form “BatchId:78382;”, where “73832” is the batch ID shown in the RUI. Must specify hit xor hit.type xor annotation.

Additional arguments passed to request.

Details
