How to manage scheduled jobs in Liferay 7.1

This article outlines steps to manage scheduled jobs in Liferay 7.1

Overview

Liferay 7.1 uses the Quartz Scheduler to schedule jobs for running background tasks.

Liferay administrators and developers sometimes require a live (runtime) view of the scheduled jobs and/or control of those jobs. The scheduled jobs may be Liferay platform tasks and/or custom tasks.

The scheduled jobs can be managed via many different tools and approaches.

Hi Tim.

The version 1.3.0 of the my project  Scheduler Manager Gogo Shell Command, added support for Liferay 7.2.0. Tested on Liferay 7.2.0 GA1 Community Edition.

Hi Tim,

Thank you for updating "Scheduled Job Manager" portlet to 7.1.

 

Do you think it could be possible to upload it to Liferay Marketplace? Thank you!

Hola Jorge,

 

the official "Scheduled Job Manager" project is managed by Rivet Logic.

 

I understand the release of the "Scheduled Job Manager" for Liferay 7.1 is currently in the project back log.

 

May I suggest you contact Rivet Logic directly via contact details at ...

 

https://www.rivetlogic.com/about/contact-us

 

... and ask about a potential schedule for progressing pull request #16 at

 

https://github.com/rivetlogic/liferay-scheduled-job-manager/pull/16

 

... and a potential schedule for publishing "Scheduled Job Manager" for Liferay 7.1.

Regards,

Tim

 

Hi Tim Telcik , Thank you for the information, I will try sending them an email. Nevertheless you can always upload it separately as a different application with a different name.

For example:

  - "Scheduled Job Manager 7.1"

  - " Scheduled Job Manager by Tim"

 

:-D

 

Regards,

Jorge
