Scheduled Triggers


Hasura Scheduled Triggers is a powerful feature that allows you to schedule tasks or events in your application based on specific time intervals. It is a trigger-based system that executes tasks at predefined intervals, specified in a cron-like syntax.

How Hasura Scheduled Triggers Work

Hasura Scheduled Triggers work by executing a webhook at a specified time interval. A webhook is an HTTP callback that is triggered by an event. When the webhook is triggered, it sends a request to the specified endpoint, which then executes the task or event defined.

Use Cases of Hasura Scheduled Triggers

Hasura Scheduled Triggers can be used for a variety of use cases, including:

  • Sending reminders to users about upcoming events or appointments
  • Generating reports or analytics on a scheduled basis
  • Updating or cleaning up data on a regular basis, such as archiving old data or deleting expired records
  • Running maintenance tasks, such as backups or security checks
  • Scheduling automated emails or notifications to users
