Running Job via Azure Scheduler RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a web-forms application hosted with Azure in which I would like to run a specific job daily - basically a quick query to the database, and email.

    My thoughts are that I would just create a simple aspx page as part of the main application, have the code behind perform the task on the page load, and schedule this to run once per day (using Azure Scheduler)

    My questions are:  Is this a reasonable (best practice) approach for something like this?  The app uses forms authentication - I assume I will have to authenticate in the page load?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.
