Scheduling as a Service, based on Agenda

Assuming all job types could be thought of as REST endpoints, scheduling could be offered as a service. agenda-rest does just that, introduce a URL, name it, agenda-rest will call it on the times that you specify.

Usage

npm install -g agenda-rest
agenda-rest --dbhost localhost --dbname agenda

APIs

GET /api/job

Get a list of defined jobs

  • Method: GET

POST /api/job

Defines a new category of jobs

  • Method: POST
  • Data:
{
    name,           // New job type's name
    url,            // koa-router style url
    method,         // (optional) Request type, default: POST
    callback: {     // (optional) to call with response after invocation
        url,
        method,
        headers
    }
}

PUT /api/job/:jobName

Updates definition of a job category

  • Method: PUT
  • Data: same as POST /api/job

DELETE /api/job/:jobName

Deletes job definition and cancels occurrences

  • Method: DELETE

POST /api/job/once & POST /api/job/every

Schedule a job for single or multiple occurrences

  • Method: POST
  • Data:
{
    name,           // Name of the type to create the instance from
    interval,       // Interval in which job should be invoked (human-interval, can also be a date string for 'once')
    data: {         // (optional) default: {}
        headers,    // Http headers, e.g. { Authorization: '<token>' }
        params,     // Path parameters, to replace `:param` notations in job definition's url
        query,      // Query parameters (?foo=bar&baz=qux)
        body        // Accompanying data sent along the request
    }
}

Callback, if present, would be invoked by the following object:

{
    data: {
        // passed data object, same as above
    },
    response        // response from invocation
}

POST /api/job/now

Like once and every, though without interval. Executes the job now.

POST /api/job/cancel

Cancels (not to be confused with 'delete') any jobs matching the query

  • Method: POST
  • Data: Mongo query
{
    name: "foo"
}
