Can not create Azure Scheduler Job Colloection correctly via rest API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks,

    I am trying to create a Azure Scheduler job collection via the rest API using Azure Ruby SDK

    I created the request following the API reference. Request body is as follow:

    <Resource xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/windowsazure">

    After sending the request, I can see the job collection created in the management portal, but the status of that job collection is "Unknown". I can not add add/update jobs under that job collection.

    Below is the log entry I got:

    RuntimeError (ESC[31mESC[1mInternalError: The server encountered an internal error. Please retry the request.ESC[0mESC[0m):

    Can someone shed me some lights on this?

    Thank you very in advance!

  • Hi Roy,

    I am not good at Ruby. But I didn't find any maintenance  information from azure dashboard. The issue is very weird,I will test it on my side and come back.

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi Will,

    Thank you very much for looking  into it. I have found out the problem.  The problem is the maximum recurrence frequency Azure Scheduler supports is every 1 minute. The example request body I am using is every 1 second, which makes the job collection status to be "Unknown".

    Now after I changed to 1 minute, I am able to create job collection correctly.

    I am wondering does Microsoft have a plan to support the frequency of every 1 second?

  • Azure Scheduler is not currently planning on supporting recurrences less than one minute.  If you have suggestions please post them to the Scheduler section in the Azure User Voice here: http://feedback.azure.com/forums/230896-scheduler.
