[Solved] Execute a recurring job in Hangfire every 8 days
Is it possible to create a recurring job in Hangfire that executes after a given number of days, say 8.
The nearest I found was to execute a job once in a week –
RecurringJob.AddOrUpdate("MyJob",() => ScheduledJob(), Cron.Weekly());
Understanding that Hangfire also accepts standard
CronExpression, I’ve tried exploring cron expression for this frequency but couldn’t found one for it-
One ugly solution could be to create 3 or 4 jobs that executes once in month at some dates accordingly, but I don’t want to do that.
Any suggestions please.
Finally I have used
CronExpression like this to schedule a recurring job with frequency of every 8 days or for any number of days for that matter.
string cronExp = "* * */8 * *"; RecurringJob.AddOrUpdate("MyJob",() => ScheduledJob(), cronExp);
The third segment in
CronExpression represents day of month.
The respective segments are as follows – (Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron)
A more cleaner Solution will be to use Cron.DayInterval(interval).
For your case it will be
RecurringJob.AddOrUpdate("MyJob",() => ScheduledJob(), Cron.DayInterval(8));
