Create a trigger for scheduling a request.

Create a Bloomberg Hypermedia connection object by using the API key provided by Bloomberg.

credentialsString = '{"client_id":"89beaeab724bbdf5e186b733c58af2","client_secret":"77050429aee81eb31793fb10fa4301c54911db545de8b2990252ffe2b56b11","name":"BloombergHAIDevelopment","scopes":["eap","beapData","reportingapi"],"expiration_date":1699198358934,"created_date":1651764758934}'
c = bloombergHypermedia(credentialsString)
c = 
  bloombergHypermedia with properties:

      TimeOut: 200.00

Specify your catalog ID and create the payload structure that holds the essential query information required by the Bloomberg Hypermedia data server. Replace "123" with your login credentials for the catalog you want to access.

userCatalog = "123";
payload.type = "PricingSnapshotTrigger";
payload.identifier = "dailySnap5PM";
payload.title = "Daily 5 PM snapshot";
payload.description = "Daily job for 5 PM snapshot";
payload.snapshotTime = "17:00:00";
payload.snapshotTimeZoneName = "America/New_York";
payload.snapshotDate = "2022-06-24";
payload.frequency = "daily";

Use the createTrigger function to create the trigger.

[triggerID,response] = createTrigger(c,userCatalog,payload)
triggerID = 
response = 
    ResponseMessage with properties:
      StatusLine: 'HTTP/1.1 201 CREATED'
      StatusCode: Created
          Header: [1x14]
            Body: [1x1]
       Completed: 0

After creating the trigger, you can use this output to create a data request by using the createRequest function.
