Hence, you can publish the webjobs via FTP or directly from vstudio. If you do so, settings.jobs file need to be created manually.

Azure WebJobs

What is an Azure WebJob?  With WebJobs, you can simply run a program or script just like a running a web app. Azure Functions is also a similar service. You can create a console app and run it continuously or triggered. Let’s try a simple one.

  • Create the console app: dotnet new console
  • Write your code. Console.WriteLine outputs to WebJobs logs page. So you can use that to log simply.
  • Publish the project: dotnet publish -c Release
  • Add a new file with extension .cms, such as Run.cmd in the publish folder – we do this because webjobs do not run dll files directly. It will run this script file.
  • Add the command to run your dll: dotnet YourProject.dll
  • Zip the publish file: YourPorject.zip
  • Follow these steps to upload it to Azure and run it: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/web-sites-create-web-jobs
  • You can use CRON expression for triggered jobs:

Every 15 minutes: 0 */15 * * * *
Every hour (that is, whenever the count of minutes is 0): 0 0 * * * *
Every hour from 9 AM to 5 PM: 0 0 9-17 * * *
At 9:30 AM every day: 0 30 9 * * *
At 9:30 AM every weekday: 0 30 9 * * 1-5

For more advanced features, you can use WebJobs SDK:
