Marking a step as started using the Workflow Manager SOAP API

Dear All,

Can someone tell me how to programmatically mark a step as started?

I am having a scenario where a step is assigned to a group that could potentially have more than one user. If any user of the respective group starts working on the job, I would like to prevent the other from starting to work on the same job. The way I am trying to achieve this is by flagging the step as started using the HasBeenStarted property of the JTXStep object. However, I can't  find a way for updating the Workflow Manager with this change.

Please note that we can mark the step as started using the ArcGIS Workflow Manager desktop application, but we cannot find similar functionality in the SOAP/REST API.

Any help in this regard will be really appreciated.

PS: We are using custom applications that will consume both the REST and the SOAP API's of the ArcGIS Workflow Manager.

Thanks & Regards,
