Schedule based trigger

This is a scheduled task that runs automatically at predefined intervals.

Tutorial steps

To create a schedule based trigger, you'll need to:

  1. Activate the Executor service
  2. Add the trigger in executor.cue manifest file
  3. Apply the change using tailorctl

1. Activate the Executor service

To activate the Executor service, add executor service to the list of services in the workspace.cue file as the following.

<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-keyword)">package</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)"> v2</span></span>
<span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-keyword)">import</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)"> (</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">	...</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">	</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">&quot;</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-string-expression)">tailor.build/template/manifest/services/executor</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">&quot;</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">)</span></span>
<span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">v2.#Workspace </span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-keyword)">&amp;</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)"> {</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">	Apps: [</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">		application</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">	]</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">	Services: [tailordb</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-punctuation)">,</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)"> pipeline</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-punctuation)">,</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)"> auth</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-punctuation)">,</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)"> executor]</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)">}</span></span>
<span></span>

2. Add the trigger in executor.cue manifest file

package executor

import (
	"github.com/tailor-platform/tailorctl/schema/v2/executor"
)

executor.#Spec & {
	Executors: [
		#triggerSchedule,
	]
}

#triggerSchedule: executor.#Executor & {
	Name:         "name"
	Description:  "description"
	Trigger: executor.#TriggerSchedule & {
		Timezone: "UTC"
		Frequency: "* * * * *"
	}
	Target: executor.#TargetWebhook & {
		URL: "http://localhost"
		Body: common.#Script & {
			Expr: """
			({
				"key": value
			})"""
		}
	}
}

3. Apply the change using tailorctl

Run the following command to apply the changes.

<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-comment)"># Generate new cue files replacing the variables</span></span>
<span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-function)">tailorctl</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)"> </span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-string)">manifest</span><span style="color: var(--shiki-color-text)"> </span><span style="color: var(--shiki-token-string)">tidy</span></span>
