Enable and disable transcoder via the REST API

I’m looking in the documentation for a way to enable and disable the transcoder through the REST API and I haven’t found it. Could someone indicate something to me?

Previously asked here:

Remember that you must restart the Application after making changes (and this will disconnect all running streams); it’s not possible to make changes on-the-fly via the REST API. If you want that, you must develop a custom module that uses the Java API.

PUT /v2/servers/{serverName}/vhosts/{vhostName}/applications/{appName}
PUT /v2/servers/{serverName}/vhosts/{vhostName}/applications/{appName}/transcoder

I can recommend to have the Swagger API reference installed and available; it helps a lot just to be able to browse through the different API methods. These articles may help you set up Swagger and Postman:
