Setting up a cron tag after create entity

System Information
  • Strapi Version: 3.6.9
  • Operating System: macOs Monterey 12.0.1
  • Database: PostgresSQL
  • Node Version: v14.17.6
  • NPM Version: 6.14.15
  • Yarn Version: 1.22.11

We have the following use case:

  • A new user does register on the platform.
  • The admin must delete or confirm it.
  • After confirmation, each N week by M times a push notification must be sent to the user.

N weeks and M times are set up on another entry on the system.

Can I create a dynamic crontab after each user is confirmed?

Thank you very much

My system does something quite similar.

afterCreate → user.status = 0 → Notification to Admin.
Admin confirms → afterUpdate → user.status = 1 and user.notificationsSent = 0

I have just one cronjob that checks each day if there are existing users with user.status 1 and user.notificationsSent < 3.
If true a notification to the user is sent and user.notificationsSent is updated to user.notificationsSent +1.

If the user logs in he is set to user.status 2 and doesn’t get another notification.

You would just need to check the updated_at-Date to archieve your “after x Weeks” demand.

It is not the thing we are looking for: the time will be different for any user since the time begins after the user is confirmed; at that time the cron must init, so checking periodically has no sense.

Hey ! Did you find a solution ?
