Scheduler

Azure Scheduler allows you to invoke actions that call HTTP/S endpoints or post messages to a storage queue on any schedule. In Scheduler, you can create jobs that reliably call services either inside or outside of Windows Azure and run those jobs right away, on a regular or irregular schedule, or set them to run at a future date.

If you have any feedback on Azure Scheduler, we’d love to hear it.

  1. Azure Scheduler support for variables

    Having the possibility to use date variables in azure scheduler POST requests would allow us for example to make a REST call to azure table storage like 'delete all records before {DateTime.UtcNow.AddMonths(-1)}'.

    It would be helpful to hear which variables would be most useful to everyone by adding them to the comments of this suggestion.

    Thanks,

  2. Disable wrapping message with StorageQueueMessage XML

    We would like an option to prevent the scheduler from wrapping the message with StorageQueueMessage XML. There is no indication in the portal that Azure will alter our message text.

    We insert into our queues from the scheduler and our own code. Our messages are JSON strings. It's very inconvenient and inefficient to have to serialize and deserialize multiple times to get/put our message.

  3. Allow me to create a schedule by specifying a schedule in a crontab format

    Crontab is a widely used anc concise scheduling format. There are numerous open source libraries for a variety of languages available for parsing the format already written.

  4. Add Access Keys as a means of authentication

    Please add an "AccessKeys" feature that works the way it works in other services, such as storage. API access by creating an AD user and application is really cumbersome and doesn't really work in a deployment scenario where everything has to be set up in an ARM template.
