Get the parent job by the ID of the current job


#1

Hello everyone,

is there a way to get the parent job by the ID of the current job? E.g. I have the job with the ID 123. Now I would like to increase the expiretime of the parent job to a few days/weeks. Is there a way to get the parent job (commonly with the ID 122 in this case) and the object of this job in Visual Basic/C#?

Thanks and regards,
Marvin Klar

Hi Marvin, in my usage of the tool, I get jobId like this:

if you make the method Signature take a ‘PerformContext’ you can pass it in the enqueue method

public void BackgroundTaskExample(int primaryKeyExample, PerformContext context){
    DoSomeWork(primaryKeyExample);
    var jobId = context.BackgroundJob.Id;
}

and when enqueueing:

BackgroundJob.Enqueue(() => BackgroundTaskExample(101, null));

the hangfire system will handle the insertion of PerformContext object properly

Hello Paul,

thank you very much for your answer. Does this context.BackgroundJob.Id; get the ID of the PARENT job, or the ID of the current job?
