Unit test IBackgroundJobClient.Schedule


#1

I am using Hangfire to schedule some jobs. All my jobs have a schedule date, so I’m using Schedule static extension method

public static string Schedule([NotNull] this IBackgroundJobClient client, [InstantHandle][NotNull] Expression<Action> methodCall, DateTimeOffset enqueueAt);

I want to unit test my methods, so that I can check that Hangfire is actually being triggered.

To do so, I’ve followed Hangfire’s documentation on unit testing (https://docs.hangfire.io/en/latest/background-methods/writing-unit-tests.html) which suggests mocking IBackgroundJobClient and verifying on the only public Create method it has:

string Create([NotNull] Job job, [NotNull] IState state);

But I can see that for Schedule invocations, this is not being called, another overload that is not public is being called instead, so I get the following error:

Message: Moq.MockException : 
Expected invocation on the mock at least once, but was never performed: x => x.Create(It.IsAny<job>(), It.IsAny<enqueuedstate>())
No setups configured.

Performed invocations: 
IBackgroundJobClient.Create(JobService.TaskFunction, ScheduledState)

Nevertheless, I’ve made an attempt with Enqueue method, and that seems to work with the mock. But I need to use Schedule.

So how can I unit test Hangfire for Schedule method?
