Use this endpoint to submit the Pika button command to your Discord Pika channel. Results obtained as a callback via optional parameter replyUrl or by querying pika/jobs/?jobid=jobid endpoint.

Currently only the retry button is supported. The API does not support the remix button. Since both buttons simply offer a convenient way of rerunning a job without the need to re-upload content, this limitation does not result in any loss of functionality.

It is important not to use the Pika account setup for API access for any purposes other than its intended use, such as executing /create or any other Pika commands manually or in conjunction with any other automation tools. The useapi.net API internally tracks the usage of the Pika account, including the number of currently active executions. Using it for other activities may cause API to function incorrectly.

  • jobid is required, jobid of successfully completed (status set to completed pika/create, pika/animate, pika/encrypt_text, pika/encrypt_image or pika/button job.

  • button is required, button from buttons array of job referenced via jobid above, see button.

  • discord is optional, if provided will override discord value of referenced above jobid, see Setup Pika for details. If the channel corresponding to the jobid mentioned above has an account configured under account/midjourney, the current account’s discord value will be used if it is not explicitly provided. This ensures that even jobs executed some time ago can still be successfully executed by this endpoint, even after possible changes to the account’s discord value.

  • maxJobs is optional, if provided will override maxJobs value of referenced above jobid, if not provided defaulted to 10.

  • replyUrl is optional, if not provided value from account will be used.
    Place here your callback URL. API will call the provided replyUrl once job completed or failed.
    Maximum length 1024 characters.
    We recommend using sites like webhook.site to test callback URL functionality.

  • replyRef is optional, place here your reference id which will be stored and returned along with this job response / result.
    Maximum length 1024 characters.

  • 200 OK

    Use returned jobid to retrieve Pika job status and results. content contains message generated by Pika reflecting current generation parameters and progress.

    Wait in a loop for at least 10..30 seconds and retry again.

    There are two possible cases for API response 429.

    1. API query is full and can not accept new pika/button requests. Size of query defined by maxJobs optional parameter. Wait in a loop for at least 10..30 seconds and retry again.
       "error": "Maximum of <maxJobs> jobs executing in parallel supported",

       "code": 429
    2. The API received an HTTP status 429 from the Discord API when it attempted to POST to the /interactions endpoint. Under normal circumstances, this should be a rare occurrence because the API is designed to strictly adhere to Discord rate limits. However, in certain scenarios, Discord may still issue a 429 response.
       "error": "Discord /interactions failed with HTTP status 429",
       "errorDetails": "{\"global\":true,\"message\":\"You are being rate limited.\",\"retry_after\":10}",
