Just clarifying as the api only returns a 204 and emby doesn't give any feedback if something is happening.

 

if the folder i want scanned if named " Currently Airing Tv " and the path to that is /nfs/Tv5 I would put /nfs/Tv5 in the path?

further small update on this, is there a limit to how many folders Emby can scan at once? ie if I were to use this to run a api call on /tv could I also overlap a call to scan /Movies and heck lets add a third one for /Music lets say?

Perfect :) Thank You. 

Last question is there plans for better feedback no the results of the command maybe a log entry like ( manual scan of TV started at 11.00 ) or even a scroll of what it's currently scanning?

Have you enabled debug logging? you should see a decent amount of info with that.
