Scheduler unable to trigger in AEM author instance

Avatar

Community Advisor

Hi All,

 

I have scheduler configured in AEM to perform some activity everyday night at 2pm. My scheduler every 3 to 4 days it is unable to trigger job and do not log any information in the logs. I'm using AEM 6.5 and with latest service pack. 

Please help or provide troubleshooting steps.

First I would like to ask few questions here -

 

1. Are you facing this issue since long time ?

2. Have you written this scheduler with OSGi R6 annotation?

3. Have you made any changes in scheduler recently and deploys the same without modifying the cronjob expression?

 

I had similar experience with scheduler and able to fix the issue.

 

 

Sharing my demo scheduler and Implementation class as reference , please review code comments and I believe it will help you to debug the issue -

Hi @Aruna_surukunta Can you verify the user permission of the scheduler script ? 

Also can you verify the cronjob expression of the scheduler ?

 

 

Regards,

Raja

Yes,

 

String schedulerExpression() default "0 0 2 1/1 * ? *";

There won't be any problem if you create all required configurations in the scheduler it self.

 

I have tested your code -

Approach 1: Deployed your scheduler on my local AEM instance and then change the cronjob expression, scheduler got triggered.

 

Approach 2: Set the cronjob expression first and then deployed scheduler (bundle, which contains the scheduler), scheduler got triggered perfectly. 

 

I did these multiple times and scheduler got triggered every time.

 

 

 

As @Jörg_Hoh suggested , could you please check the threadpool also.

 

Are you still facing the same problem?

@DEBAL_DAS ,

Thanks it works perfectly fine. Could you please remove the sample code.

This code is overly complex, because you register the scheduler manually. Sling can do that for you as well, you just need to define the scheduler expression as a property (see https://sling.apache.org/documentation/bundles/scheduler-service-commons-scheduler.html#scheduling-w...).

Already Aruna has defined scheduler expression as a property in her code.

Even I have defined scheduler expression as a property in my demo code also. Forgot to add that piece of the my code and plz accept my apology  -

 

here is my demo code -

 

package com.aem.demo.core.configurations;

import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.AttributeDefinition;
import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.AttributeType;
import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.ObjectClassDefinition;

/**
*
* @author debal This is the configuration class that takes properties for a
* scheduler to run
*/

@ObjectClassDefinition(name = "TaskNotificationSchedulerConfiguration", description = "Task Notification scheduler configuration")
public @interface TaskNotificationSchedulerConfiguration {

/**
* This method will return the name of the Scheduler
*
* @Return {@link String}
*/
@AttributeDefinition(name = "Scheduler name", description = "Name of the scheduler", type = AttributeType.STRING)
public String schdulerName() default "Task Notification scheduler configuration";

/**
* This method will set flag to enable the scheduler
*
* @Return {@link Boolean}
*/

@AttributeDefinition(name = "Enabled", description = "True, if scheduler service is enabled", type = AttributeType.BOOLEAN)
public boolean enabled() default false;

/**
* This method returns the Cron expression which will decide how the scheduler
* will run
*
* @Return {@link String}
*/

@AttributeDefinition(name = "Cron Expression", description = "Cron expression used by the scheduler", type = AttributeType.STRING)
public String cronExpression() default "0 * * * * ?";

/**
* This method returns the Asset Path
*
*
* @Return {@link String}
*/

@AttributeDefinition(name = "Asset Path", description = "Asset Path", type = AttributeType.STRING)
public String assetPath() default "/content/dam";


}

 

Just to test her scheduler, manually I have modified the default cronjob expression.

Another possible problem is that the threadpool you are using (most likely the default thread pool) does not have a free thread to run your job.
