Investigating - We are aware of a problem where some REST API calls are returning very slowly - taking roughly 15 seconds. We are investigating the cause of this problem and are working to find a fix. If you need an immediate work-around, try using the built-in Java HTTP client instead of the Unirest client that we bundle into all scripts.
