Shared dbs with application

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fb50e35acd0>

Is it good practice to share application database with Hangfire ?
Are there any issues we can expect when we sharing database for job storage with rest of application ?

Hi Peter -

I’ve seen this done in product a few times with no problem. Hangfire does a good job of not interfering with other things.

There is one problem I have seen with this - if you restore a backup of all your application database, it will include all job history and recurring jobs.

For example - If you restore your application database to a TEST environment - it will include all your recurring jobs. If you run hangfire in your test environment - it will begin running those jobs. This may not be an issue, or could even be a good thing.

This is the only concern I would have storing Hangfire data within your application database.
