Scheduling API


The scheduling system in Sitefinity allows you to schedule the execution of your custom logic at a specific time. It allows the user to set and track the progress of the scheduled tasks. The system automatically handles the NLB case, and the code is executed only on one node.

Create a scheduled task class

  1. Create a class that inherits from Telerik.Sitefinity.Scheduling.ScheduledTask.
  2. Create default constructor.
  3. Override the ExecuteTask method.
  4. To return the full name of your class, override the TaskName.
  5. To set a custom data and use it when the task is executed, override the GetCustomData and SetCustomData methods.
    • GetCustomData – in this method you return your custom data as a string and that string is stored in the database when the task is persisted.
    • SetCustomData – the custom data is retrieved from the database when the task is executed and you can use it to populate the required properties of your class.
