This documentation describes Scheduler.


Scheduler is a service for scheduling the execution of Diego tasks (jobs), such as database migrations, emails, or batch jobs, and the execution of outbound HTTP requests (calls).

Scheduler enables developers to:

  • Create, run, and schedule jobs and view job history.
  • Create, run, and schedule calls and view call history.

You can interact with the service by using the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI), Apps Manager, and the Scheduler HTTP API.

Scheduler requires a MySQL database.

You can use either of the following:


  • If your app uses a buildpack that does not generate a web process type, such as Ruby or Python, you should do the following:

    1. Create a Procfile in the root directory of the app before pushing it.
    2. Declare a web process type in the file.

    If you do not declare this process type, your app is not accessible when using 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 org and space. For more information, see Running Tasks.
