tickets (Required)
A comma-delimited list of ticket ids

Example Response

  <ticket id="128" complete="1" photoid="2995" />
  <ticket id="129" complete="0" />
  <ticket id="130" complete="2" />
  <ticket id="131" invalid="1" />

There is one <ticket> element for each ticket id supplied. The id attribute contains the corresponding ticket id. If the ticket wasn't found, the invalid attribute is set. The status of the ticket is passed in the status attribute; 0 means not completed, 1 means completed and 2 means the ticket failed (indicating there was a problem converting the file). When the status is 1, the photo id is passed in the photoid attribute. The photo id can then be used as with the synchronous upload API.
