Quartz.Extensions.Hosting(opens new window) provides integration with hosted services(opens new window) .


Quartz 3.2 or later required for Quartz.Extensions.Hosting. You can use package Quartz.AspNetCore with version 3.1.

# Installation

You need to add NuGet package reference to your project which uses Quartz.

Quartz 3.1

Install-Package Quartz.AspNetCore 

Quartz 3.2 onwards

Install-Package Quartz.Extensions.Hosting

# Using

You can add Quartz configuration by invoking an extension method AddQuartzHostedService on IServiceCollection. This will add a hosted quartz server into process that will be started and stopped based on applications lifetime.


See Quartz.Extensions.DependencyInjection documentation to learn more about configuring Quartz scheduler, jobs and triggers.

Example program utilizing hosted services configuration

public class Program
    public static void Main(string[] args)
        Log.Logger = new LoggerConfiguration()

    public static IHostBuilder CreateHostBuilder(string[] args) =>
            .ConfigureServices((hostContext, services) =>
                // base configuration from appsettings.json

                // base configuration for DI
                services.AddQuartz(q =>
                    // handy when part of cluster or you want to otherwise identify multiple schedulers
                    q.SchedulerId = "Scheduler-Core";
                    // we take this from appsettings.json, just show it's possible
                    // q.SchedulerName = "Quartz ASP.NET Core Sample Scheduler";

                    // we could leave DI configuration intact and then jobs need to have public no-arg constructor
                    // the MS DI is expected to produce transient job instances 
                    q.UseMicrosoftDependencyInjectionJobFactory(options =>
                        // if we don't have the job in DI, allow fallback to configure via default constructor
                        options.AllowDefaultConstructor = true;

                    // or 
                    // q.UseMicrosoftDependencyInjectionScopedJobFactory();
                    // these are the defaults
                    q.UseDefaultThreadPool(tp =>
                        tp.MaxConcurrency = 10;
                    // configure jobs with code
                    var jobKey = new JobKey("awesome job", "awesome group");
                    q.AddJob<ExampleJob>(j => j
                        .WithDescription("my awesome job")

                    q.AddTrigger(t => t
                        .WithIdentity("Simple Trigger")    
                        .WithSimpleSchedule(x => x.WithInterval(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10)).RepeatForever())
                        .WithDescription("my awesome simple trigger")


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