Create a One-off Scheduled Event


One-off scheduled events are used to reliably trigger an HTTP webhook to run custom business logic at a particular point in time. For example, you can create a scheduled event to send a reminder email two weeks after a user signs up.

To add a one-off scheduled event, follow these steps:

Step 1: Define the scheduled event

The following fields for required to define a scheduled event:

  • Webhook: The HTTP endpoint that should be triggered.
  • Time: The time to trigger the event.
  • Payload: The JSON payload which will be sent to the webhook.

Navigate to Events > One-off Scheduled Events > Schedule an event in your Hasura Console.

Adding a one-off scheduled event

In the form opened by the above step, fill out the fields defined above:

Step 2: Define advanced options (Optional)

If you like, you can also define advanced values:

  • Headers: List of headers to be sent to the webhook.
  • Retry configuration: In case the call to the webhook fails.
  • Comment: Custom description of the Scheduled Trigger.

Expand the Advanced section.

Schedule & logs

Once you've created your Scheduled Trigger, you can see Pending events, Processed events, and Invocation logs in their respective tabs.

Schedule and logs for scheduled events

A scheduled event will be delivered within ten seconds of when it's scheduled. For example, if you schedule an event at 09:24:10, it will be delivered between 09:24:10 and 09:24:20.

This is because Hasura currently checks for events to be delivered at 10 second intervals. This interval will be made configurable soon.
