How to use POST REST Command in the search to reschedule the saved search scheduled time.

for e.g saved search xxx is scheduled to execute by 2015-07-01 15:30:00. I need to schedule it to 2015-07-01 15:35:00 using

saved/searches/{name}/reschedule POST rest API.

Query:

| rest /services/saved/searches/AlertFired/reschedule POST -d schedule_time=2015-07-1T15:21:00Z

I have tried the above query and got the below error,

Error in 'rest' command: Invalid argument: 'POST'
The search job has failed due to an error. You may be able view the job in the Job Inspector.

it is possible to reschedule using one of the SDKs. I'm doing this currently for any skipped searches using the Python SDK. The SDK uses REST to accomplish this. It is also possible to do POST requests via REST when using the "curl" command without necessarily using the SDK.

The rest search command will only do GET requests.
