                // see Quartz.Extensions.DependencyInjection documentation about how to configure different configuration aspects
                services.AddQuartz(q =>
                    // your configuration here

                // Quartz.Extensions.Hosting hosting
                services.AddQuartzHostedService(options =>
                    // when shutting down we want jobs to complete gracefully
                    options.WaitForJobsToComplete = true;
