SidekiqUniqueJobs Build Status

The missing unique jobs for sidekiq

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'sidekiq-unique-jobs'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install sidekiq-unique-jobs

Usage

All that is required is that you specifically set the sidekiq option for unique to true like below:

sidekiq_options unique: true

You can also control the expiration length of the uniqueness check. If you want to enforce uniqueness over a longer period than the default of 30 minutes then you can pass the number of seconds you want to use to the sidekiq options:

sidekiq_options unique: true, unique_job_expiration: 120 * 60 # 2 hours

Requiring the gem in your gemfile should be sufficient to enable unique jobs.

Finer Control over Uniqueness

Sometimes it is desired to have a finer control over which arguments are used in determining uniqueness of the job, and others may be transient. For this use-case, you need to set SidekiqUniqueJobs::Config.unique_args_enabled to true in an initializer, and then defined either unique_args method, or a ruby proc.

SidekiqUniqueJobs::Config.unique_args_enabled = true

The method or the proc can return a modified version of args without the transient arguments included, as shown below:

class UniqueJobWithFilterMethod
  include Sidekiq::Worker
  sidekiq_options unique: true,
                  unique_args: :unique_args

  def self.unique_args(name, id, options)
    [ name, options[:type] ]
  end

  ...

end

class UniqueJobWithFilterProc
  include Sidekiq::Worker
  sidekiq_options unique: true,
                  unique_args: ->(args) { [ args.first ] }

  ...

end

Note that objects passed into workers are converted to JSON after running through client middleware. In server middleware, the JSON is passed directly to the worker #perform method. So, you may run into issues where the arguments are different when enqueuing than they are when performing. Your unique_args method may need to account for this.
