Prerequisite:  Example assumes you have previously authenticated, and your valid session cookie is in 'mycookie'.

Example Call

Refetching performs a scrape to see if any changes have been made to the source repository. This action will pull in assets from a repository added to an account. You can then perform an Import Cookbooks from a Repository to bring cookbooks into your account and attach them when modifying a ServerTemplate. You can perform a Show Repository to view the fetch_status to see if the refetch completed successfully.
