Question:

I installed Google Firebase on my server, and I want to set up a cron job to trigger Google Firebase's cron job script. What should I do to set up the cron job?

Answer:

Our webcron service is best for triggering Google Firebase's cron job script. Just follow below simple steps to configure cron job for your Google Firebase:

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. In field "URL to call", e.g. enter http://www.example.com/accountcleanup?key=YOUR-KEY (replace www.example.com with your install location and match a key set as an environment variable using `firebase functions:config:set cron.key="YOUR_KEY"`). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy. Checkout below screenshot:

  3. If necessary, finish the other optional settings.
  4. Click "Create Cron Job" button. You're done! EasyCron will trigger your Google Firebase's cron job script dutifully according to your time setting.
  5. If you haven't registered your EasyCron account yet, click on the "add a password" link on the top to add an email and password to your account.
