Recurring job runs every minute after initial execution


I couldn’t find any solution or explanation for this, so posting the question here.

using Hangfire.AspnNetCore 1.7.7

and set up a single tally job that is scheduled for 6 hours run time. “* */6 * * *”

However, when it runs, Hangfire will execute the job every minute for the next hour.

I have no idea why it is doing this.


That sounds correct to me. Did you expect that cron string to do something else?


Not sure how to use Cron string. Thought just had to put /6 on the hour marker. The correct string is 0 */6 *… It is now working correctly.

Thanks for the link. Much appreciated.
