Apps can provide Jobs to take advantage of all the built-in functionality provided by that feature (user input forms, background execution, results logging and reporting, etc.).
By default, for each app, Nautobot looks for an iterable named
jobs within a
jobs.py file. (This can be overridden by setting
jobs to a custom value on the app's
NautobotAppConfig.) A brief example is below; for more details on Job design and implementation, refer to the Jobs feature documentation.
Changed in version 2.0.0
Because Jobs are now proper Celery tasks, you now must call
register_jobs() from within your
jobs.py file when it is imported; any jobs not included in this call will not be available for Celery to schedule and execute.
