How do we properly include a description in the front-end backup URL?

After &key=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX I tried adding &description=My description txt

Example:
curl -L --max-redirs 1000 -v "https://mydomain.com/wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/app/index.php?view=remote&key=MH9VkA0Jj4ERLNU05p3xaaeRq0fC7TQJ5fQ4IvtbP7WAH3bO&description=My description txt" 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null

When I execute this via cron the backup does not start. Without description works.

What is the proper method to include description?

Thank you

I don't think the description is available for the front end backup. I checked the docutmentation and it isn't mentioned there. I checked my old front end backup command and I didn't use it for the front end CRON jobs.

You can try:
url -L --max-redirs 1000 -v "https://mydomain.com/wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/app/index.php?view=remote&key=MH9VkA0Jj4ERLNU05p3xaaeRq0fC7TQJ5fQ4IvtbP7WAH3bO&description='My description txt'" 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null
Note single quotes around the description text. But I'm not very hopeful.
