Azure scheduler authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone

    I am having a problem while trying to use azure schedule. I am able to connect and create jobs etc from my client ( web api that creates a new job) after I installed the certificate connected with my subscription in my pc.

    However, my final plan is to deploy it at an Azure web role. In that case do I have to install again the certificate?

    Is there any other workaround? 

    Thanks in advanced

  • Hi

    Azure Scheduler allows you to declaratively describe actions to run in the cloud. It then schedules and runs those actions automatically. Scheduler does this by using the Azure portal, code, REST API, or Azure PowerShell so you shouldn't really be having an issue

    Azure WebJobs is part of the Web Apps feature in Azure App Service so if your using a limited account such as DreamSpark.com Student Account WebJobs are yet activated so you will getting problems. See http://imagine.microsoft.com for the latest announcement re Azure for Students.

    For Azure scheduling capabilities, see the Scheduler REST API

    There are several scenarios that lend themselves to the usage of Scheduler. For example:

    • Recurring application actions: Periodically gathering data from Twitter into a feed.
    • Daily maintenance: Daily pruning of logs, performing backups, and other maintenance tasks. For example, an administrator may choose to back up the database at 1:00 A.M. every day for the next nine months.

    Scheduler allows you to create, update, delete, view, and manage jobs and job collections programmatically, by using scripts, and in the portal.

    Have you checked out these tutorials and step by Step guides http://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/documentation/services/scheduler/
