INFO: Scheduled Actions in MassTransit

Thursday, November 20th, 2008


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


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

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008


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


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.
