DivvyCloud bots can spawn jobs that run at specified times with specified arguments. These jobs are called scheduled events.
A job is registered as a scheduled event using the
register method of the
ScheduledEventManager class, which acts as a class decorator. For example, this is how the
StartResourceJob scheduled event is registered in DivvyCloud:
from DivvyWorkers.Processors.ScheduledEvents import ScheduledEventManager @ScheduledEventManager.register('divvy.start_resource') class StartResourceJob(MultiResourceScheduledEventJob): ...
The scheduled event can then be referred to using the unique identifier defined in the
register decorator, in this case
Here is an example of how to spawn a scheduled event within a bot action:
from DivvyBotfactory.scheduling import ScheduledEventTracker @registry.action( uid='divvy.action.start_resource_example', bulk_action=True, accepts_complement=True, ... ) def start_resource_example(bot, settings, matches, non_matches): with ScheduledEventTracker() as context: for resource in matches: context.schedule_bot_event( bot=bot, resource=resource, description='Start a resource.', event_type='divvy.start_resource' schedule_data=schedule.Once(when=datetime.utcnow() + timedelta(hours=12)) )
When developing a plugin that DivvyCloud dynamically loads and unloads, it is necessary to unload the plugin’s scheduled events. This can be conveniently done using the
ScheduledEventRegistryWrapper class, which requires only a minor variation upon the pattern shown above.
from DivvyWorkers.Processors.ScheduledEvents import ScheduledEventRegistryWrapper # Initialize the registry wrapper events = ScheduledEventRegistryWrapper() # Register a scheduled event job events.register('divvy.start_resource') class StartResourceJob(MultiResourceScheduledEventJob): ... # Handle plugin loading/unloading def load(): events.load() def unload(): events.unload()
A scheduled event registered this way is created and referred to in the same way as before. The only difference is in the specific syntax of how that event is registered.
