App Platform scheduled job components
My application has scheduled tasks that need to be run every 1 minute, 15 minutes, 1 hour, etc etc.
Jobs seem like a perfect component to do this in App Platform, but I can’t set them to run automatically on a set schedule.
I’m pretty sure I can hack around this by using a worker component that runs an infinite loop, but this seems incredibly wasteful. My scheduled tasks only take a few seconds to run, but I will be charged for 24/7 usage if I run them via a worker.
Is there a better way to achieve this? And is DO working on letting us run job components on a schedule?
