How to schedule a Job in Azure Batch from the Management Console? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to setup a job from the management consoles and intensive googling has yielded results that would require me to write a code in .NET using Batch API for .NET.

    I sincerely hope I am wrong! please let me know if there is a better way of doing this. I am an open-source guy on Mac!! and would love any solution that would be more up my open source ally.

    REST API seems too cumbersome and I am trying to run a JAR file that prints "Hello World" for now.

  • Hi Shankar

    The results from your searches are correct at the moment - we currently have REST and .NET API's, as well as allow applications to run on Windows VM's.  However, this will change very shortly - we have previously announced our plan to support Linux VM's and will also be expanding our API offerings.

    Watch out for some announcements on the Azure blog (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/) in the very near future that I'm hoping will satisfy your requirements!

    Thanks, Mark

  • Expanding on Mark's comment, we currently have a Node.js API which we just published here:


    We are also very close to publishing a Python package.

    Do either of those two languages (Python or Node) meet your needs?  If not, what language are you looking for?

  • I was looking for a JAVA API, which I could use in a Spring Boot App. Hope this helps

  • Hi Shankarlogs,

    We are working on a Java client as well, but it may be a bit before its out (it's at least a couple of weeks away).

    If that timeline isn't satisfactory let us know and we will see if we can work something out.
