Cron Jobs in SQL Server

Cron Jobs in SQL Server

Cron is a utility for time-based job scheduling operations.

PowerShell Scripts help us in configuration of Cron Jobs.


Steps to Schedule a cron job:

  1. Open the SQl Azure / Cloud Sites Control Panel.
  2. Click on the site with the database >>  Features (tab).
  3. Under Scheduled Tasks (Cron Jobs) >> Add New Task (This is similar to STEP we see in regular SQL Server Job)
  4. Name the Job >> Check  Send me an email check box
  5. Configure the step. Ex: Select http as the script language and Enter the URL to the ASP script/PowerShell Script you predefined for action and notification.
  6. Schedule the job as per your requirement.
