Request: How do I run cron job like processes on crowdbotics? I have django management command that has to be executed on every week.
Project ID: 20027
Project Link: https://app.crowdbotics.com/dashboard/app/20027
we can use Heroku Scheduler for this, let me know the management command and i will add it.
It’s not yet implemented, will I be able to register Heroku Scheduler or I should come back with this request ?
Mention me here after you need it done. Heroku Scheduler has to be added from heroku app dashboard itself.
@saurav can you please create a scheduler every Wednesday midnight for the following management command:
python manage.py generate_meal_plan
@radac I have added a scheduler to run at 12:00 am every Thursday. Let me know if there is any issue with it.
@saurav do we have any output from the previous execution? I did not found any error / meal plans to be generated.
Can you please schedule for today/anytime to have another test?
@radac Since it’s scheduler to run every thursday 12:00 am, it hasn’t run yet. I ran this command manually, see if it generated plans. The management command didn’t give any error or output though. I believe, management command some output to console about the process status or steps.
@saurav I’m not able to see any updates. In meantime I have added output for management command so it should print it’s result. Can you please run again?
@radac I ran the management command and this is the output.
Successfully generated 3 meal plans with 0 errors . I guess it should be generated now.
Alright, everything is OK. Can you please set scheduler to Wednesday midnight and we are all set.
Thank you very much for your support!
