Update Template Schedule with API

  • Hello,

    I am looking for a way to update the cron schedule for a template via an API call is this possible?


  • You can update every entity using the same OData API.
    Please see the docs https://jsreport.net/learn/api#crud

    In this case, the call can look like this

    PATCH http://jsreport-host/odata/schedules('<_id>')
    BODY: {
    "cron": "5 55 * * * *"

    Let me know if you need further help.

  • Hello, Thanks this worked, however I noticed that the nextRun field isn't updated automatically unless i disable then re enable the schedule.
    Is there any other way to do it automatically? Other that setting this field manually as well?

  • Do you use the latest jsreport 2.8.0?
    I see it working there, the nextRun is being automatically updated when cron is changed.
    I remember there were some fixes done recently regarding this.

  • Hello Im currently using version 2.7.2, how can we update to the latest version without losing the work we have done. Please note that we are using mssql-store to store all the jsreport info in our db. Will the new version have the same DB structure when updated?


  • There are likely some small changes in the schema.

    I would use the following flow.

    • backup everything
    • create your current db clone
    • install jsreport 2.8.0 and run it configured to the db clone
    • test the app, it can fail on some schema errors, typically with error "missing column jsreport_TemplateType"
    • run alter table jsreport_TemplateType <column> <datatype>, you can get the type from http://localhost:5488/odata/$metadata
    • when everything works, you can use the same alters on your current db and update jsreport
