Quartz.net CancellationToken

Here is a Unit Test from Github Repo: https://github.com/quartznet/quartznet/blob/master/src/Quartz.Tests.Unit/InterrubtableJobTest.cs

I tried to implement the cancellation the same way, but it didn't work for me either.

@Stormcloak I have to check the cancellation request because I want to do some aborting operations for the job, e.g. write status data to a database.


So, after multiple tests and implementations. I've got it running.

Some Pseudo code here:

    this.scheduler = await StdSchedulerFactory.GetDefaultScheduler();
    this.tokenSource = new CancellationTokenSource();
    this.token = tokenSource.Token;
    // Start scheduler.
    await this.scheduler.Start(token);
    // add some jobs here
    // ...
    // cancel running jobs.
    IReadOnlyCollection<IJobExecutionContext> jobs = await this.scheduler.GetCurrentlyExecutingJobs();
    foreach (IJobExecutionContext context in jobs)
       result = await this.scheduler.Interrupt(context.JobDetail.Key, this.token);
    await this.scheduler.Shutdown(true);

So now you can use the CancellationToken in your Execute method.

According to the documentation, you should use Interrupt method to cancel Quartz jobs.

NameValueCollection props = new NameValueCollection
    { "quartz.serializer.type", "binary" }
StdSchedulerFactory factory = new StdSchedulerFactory(props);
var scheduler = await factory.GetScheduler();
await scheduler.Start();
IJobDetail job = JobBuilder.Create<HelloJob>()
    .WithIdentity("myJob", "group1")
ITrigger trigger = TriggerBuilder.Create()
    .WithIdentity("myTrigger", "group1")
    .WithSimpleSchedule(x => x
await scheduler.ScheduleJob(job, trigger);
//Configure the cancellation of the schedule job with jobkey
await Task.Delay(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1));
await scheduler.Interrupt(job.Key);

Scheduled job class;

public class HelloJob : IJob
    public async Task Execute(IJobExecutionContext context)
        while (true)
            if (context.CancellationToken.IsCancellationRequested)
                // After interrupt the job, the cancellation request activated

Apply scheduler.Interrupt after the job executed and the quartz will terminate the job.


According to source code (Line 2151), the Interrupt method applys cancellation tokens of the job execution contexts. So, it could be better to use facility of the library.
