Scheduler for PCF has the following requirements:
- MySQL for PCF v1.10. The service is available on Pivotal Network.
If your app uses a buildpack that does not generate a
webprocess type, such as Ruby or Python, you should do the following:
- Before pushing your app, create a Procfile in the root directory of the app.
- Declare a
webprocess type in the file.
If you do not declare this process type, your app will not be accessible through the cf CLI after you create Scheduler jobs for it.
The maximum number of tasks that you can schedule is determined by the memory and disk quotas in the Scheduler for PCF org and space. See Running Tasks for more information.
