Two-Factor Authentication is supported

Hello there,

You can now protect your account better with our Two-Factor Authentication. When enabled, after logging in successfully with your email and password or with your social account, you'll need to enter another authentication code from your authenticator app.
Authentication code required before accessing your account.

To enable, visit Account > Overview, click Enable Two-Factor Authentication. You'll need to install an authenticator app first on your mobile phone or tablet. You can then scan the barcode displayed, and enter the authentication code generated by the app to confirm.

SetCronJob recommends Google Authenticator and Authy app.

To disable, visit Account > Overview, click Disable at Two-Factor Authentication section. You'll need to enter authentication code one last time to confirm. You may want to delete SetCronJob from your authenticator app too.

If you have any question, just let me know.

Power Failure in datacenter

Hello there,

This morning I got reported that SetCronJob had been down from Feb 23, 18:03 to 19:16, UTC. After some research, I found that the power failure in Fremont datacenter at Linode caused the issue. You can read more about the incident here.

Because all of our core servers (database, web, cron distributor, etc) are hosted in Fremont, they had crashed and stopped working entirely for more than one hour. With our current configuration, there was nothing we could do about it. We can only run the cronjobs with missing executions once to make sure they won't miss.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

We are working on improving our system to prepare for incidents like this.

Cron notifications to multiple emails and Slack channels

Hi there,

By default, SetCronJob only sends notification emails to your registered email address. From now on you can add more recipients for your cron notifications.

First, visit Account > Contacts to add your new emails or Slack IDs.
Add contacts at Account > Contacts.
The targets must confirm to accept incoming cron notifications from SetCronJob.

Once a target is added and confirmed, you can update your groups to send all cron notifications to your contact(s). All cronjobs under that group will send their notifications to the contacts. You can add up to 3 different contacts per group.

To add and update a group contact, click Edit on a group and select desired contacts:
Select contacts when adding/editing groups.
When contacts are added to a group, you can see the icon next to group name like this:
Contacts icon in group headers.
You can hover over the icons to see the contacts name, or click on it to update contacts.

You can move your cronjobs into a group by editing it, at the section Name, group, and note, select desired Group value.

This new feature is available in Platinum accounts and higher, and Slack is supported in Diamond account only.
