I have a geo processing service that takes a csv as an input and creates a kernel density. Within ArcMap I can connect to my ArcGIS Server and see the service and run it with an input file.

But when I try and use the REST URL the input file is a GPDataFile so I use this json:

{ "url" : "http://www.arcgis.com/sharing/rest/content/items/90e8bd6c020e4730a412e81f54cb0b08/data" } for the input, but it fails for:

NOTE: Projection Kernel Symbology is just the name of the service.

Error executing tool. Projection_Kernel_Symbology Job ID: j538996bcdb784191a2e1d4c957088332 : ERROR 000840: The value is not a Table View. WARNING 001000: Population field: Field value does not exist ERROR 000840: The value is not a Table View. ERROR 000735: X Field: Value is required ERROR 000735: Y Field: Value is required WARNING 001000: Population field: Field value does not exist

Is there a trick to passing a file or getting better logging on the server? ArcMap is able to use this service, is it using the REST API or does it use python?

You need to enable Uploads on the service and then a client application will upload the file to the Server where it will be assigned an ID.  I can't recall the exact property names, but it'll be something to the effect of {"itemId":"id_created_during_upload"} and then it'll be processed from there.  I'm not sure what ArcMap is doing, but it's likely doing something similar to the above.  I would try to enable Uploads on the service under Capabilities and then use the out of the box GP widget within the WAB to take a look at the network traffic when running the tool.
