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.

If you have any suggestion or question, just comment below or contact us.

View full output in Platinum+ accounts


SetCronJob stored only first 4KB and last 1KB of your cronjob execution's output by default. The rest is truncated, and there was no way to retrieve it. It's a little inconvenient when you need the full output to diagnose your script or check error messages in between.

We'll now store up to 320 KB (first 256 KB and last 64 KB) of failed execution's output. At the Cron execution logs page, you can click the View full output button to see your full cron execution result.
Click View full output to see longer output (up to 1.25MB)
This feature is available to Platinum and Diamond accounts only. You can upgrade your account by visiting Account > Plan.

If you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

SetCronJob API request now supports JSON

Hello there,

From now on you can send API request via POST with parameters in query string format or JSON format.

Query string format:
curl -d 'token=******'

JSON format:
curl -d '{"token":"******"}'

We also update our cronjob execution results data structure. In short, we moved most data into cronlog.result including startTime, executionTime, status, etc. For backward compatibility, you can still access those values at the moment, but it will be removed within 3 months. You'd better update your script to reflex those changes if any.
