Note:   This topic is intended for administrators and developers with administration access rights in Episerver.

A scheduled job is a service performing a task (job) at a given time interval. An administrator can start a job manually. A standard installation of the Episerver platform with Episerver CMS and Episerver Commerce includes several scheduled jobs. Some are enabled by default with preset values. You can develop customized scheduled jobs for specific website tasks.

Administering scheduled jobs

Manage scheduled jobs as follows:

  1. Log in as an administrator and go to the Episerver CMS admin view.
  2. Select the desired scheduled job on the Admin tab > Scheduled Jobs.
  3. Select the Active box to activate the scheduled job.
    • To run the scheduled job automatically, set the desired time interval in Scheduled job interval. Each scheduled job's run time appears in the Next scheduled date field.
    • To run the scheduled job manually, click Start Manually and the job is executed immediately.
  4. Click Save.

The History tab lets you monitor the status and results when a scheduled job is executed. If a job fails, information about it appears under the Message column.
