Azure Scheduler will retire on September 30, 2019

Posted on Monday, December 17, 2018

In 2016, we launched Azure Logic Apps, which includes the ability to configure and run scheduled jobs as well as advanced workflow features. Because Logic Apps fully replaces Azure Scheduler capabilities, Scheduler will be retired as a standalone service on September 30, 2019. As with all changes of this type, we’re providing 12 months’ notice so you have adequate time to adjust.

To continue using jobs you’ve configured in Scheduler, please move to Logic Apps by September 30, 2019. We encourage you to make the switch sooner, to gain the richer benefits of Logic Apps. In addition to the Scheduler features you’re already familiar with, Logic Apps enables you to:

  • Use a visual designer and connectors to integrate with more than 200 different services, including Azure Blob storage, Azure Service Bus, Microsoft Outlook, and SAP.
  • Manage each scheduled workload as a first-class Azure resource.
  • Run multiple one-time jobs using a single logic app.
  • Set schedules that automatically adjust to daylight saving time.

Call to Action:

Move your scheduled jobs to Logic Apps by September 30, 2019, to take advantage of advanced capabilities and avoid any service disruptions.
