POST - /v1/users/<username>/graphs/<graphID>/stopwatch


This will start and end the measurement of the time.

The first request indicates the start of the measurement, the second request indicates the end of the measurement. When a request for end-of-measurement is made, the time (in minutes) measured is recorded on the graph as the date of the day.

The time (in minutes) recorded will be rounded to an integer if the graph type is int. In addition, it is not possible to measure time across days.
