INFO: Scheduled Actions in MassTransit

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Summary:

MassTransit 6.0 offers a new feature to configure actions that run on a periodic basis instead of based on MassTransit events. This feature is useful for scheduling maintenance tasks that should occur on a regular basis from within MassTransit.
Note: For information about MassTransit 7 please refer to the following link: MassTransit 7 Home

Description:

MassTransit Servers can now have actions that trigger at a specified periodic interval. Intervals include:

  • Hourly at a specific minute past the hour (i.e. Hourly at 15 past the hour)
  • Daily at a certain time every day (i.e. Daily at 3:30 AM)
  • Weekly on the days selected at a designated time
    (i.e. Weekly on Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 3:30 PM)
  • Monthly on a selected day at a designated time
    (i.e. Monthly on the 1st of the month at 2:00 AM)

Note that actions configured periodically are not associated with a contact as there is no relevant triggering event for a specific contact.

INFO: Configuring Actions for a Subset of MassTransit Contacts

Summary:

MassTransit 6.0 allows you to configure actions that run for multiple contacts.

Description:

MassTransit 6.0 allows you to trigger actions for one contact, all contacts or a selection of contacts. The “Who” area now has a radio button “Selected Contacts:” that launches a separate window that allows you to pick for which contacts the action should trigger. You can select one or many contacts from this dialog.
