Track your NodeJs cron jobs

Instantly connect LogSnag to your NodeJs project to track your cron jobs and other important events - LogSnag makes event tracking easy.

When setting up cron jobs in NodeJs, it is usually crucial to keep track of their execution and whether they have been executed successfully or not. Sometimes, a minor failure in a cronjob can cause your NodeJs application to stop working correctly. LogSnag makes it easy to track your cron jobs and their execution status all in real-time, and it works seamlessly with your NodeJs code.


Setting up your account

Setting up LogSnag with NodeJs is very simple!

  1. Create a free LogSnag account.
  2. Create a new project on your dashboard.
  3. Copy your API token from the settings page.

NodeJs code snippets

Once your LogSnag account is set up, you can use the following code snippets to track your cron jobs. Just replace the YOUR_API_TOKEN with your LogSnag API token and update your project name.

Using NodeJs with Axios
var axios = require('axios');
var data = JSON.stringify({
  "project": "my-saas",
  "channel": "cronjobs",
  "event": "Cronjob Started",
  "description": "job: email-notifications",
  "icon": "⏰",
  "notify": true
});

var config = {
  method: 'post',
  url: 'https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log',
  headers: { 
    'Content-Type': 'application/json', 
    'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  },
  data : data
};

axios(config)
.then(function (response) {
  console.log(JSON.stringify(response.data));
})
.catch(function (error) {
  console.log(error);
});
Using NodeJs with Native
var https = require('follow-redirects').https;
var fs = require('fs');

var options = {
  'method': 'POST',
  'hostname': 'api.logsnag.com',
  'path': '/v1/log',
  'headers': {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  },
  'maxRedirects': 20
};

var req = https.request(options, function (res) {
  var chunks = [];

  res.on("data", function (chunk) {
    chunks.push(chunk);
  });

  res.on("end", function (chunk) {
    var body = Buffer.concat(chunks);
    console.log(body.toString());
  });

  res.on("error", function (error) {
    console.error(error);
  });
});

var postData = JSON.stringify({
  "project": "my-saas",
  "channel": "cronjobs",
  "event": "Cronjob Started",
  "description": "job: email-notifications",
  "icon": "⏰",
  "notify": true
});

req.write(postData);

req.end();
Using NodeJs with Request
var request = require('request');
var options = {
  'method': 'POST',
  'url': 'https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log',
  'headers': {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  },
  body: JSON.stringify({
    "project": "my-saas",
    "channel": "cronjobs",
    "event": "Cronjob Started",
    "description": "job: email-notifications",
    "icon": "⏰",
    "notify": true
  })

};
request(options, function (error, response) {
  if (error) throw new Error(error);
  console.log(response.body);
});
Using NodeJs with Unirest
var unirest = require('unirest');
var req = unirest('POST', 'https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log')
  .headers({
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  })
  .send(JSON.stringify({
    "project": "my-saas",
    "channel": "cronjobs",
    "event": "Cronjob Started",
    "description": "job: email-notifications",
    "icon": "⏰",
    "notify": true
  }))
  .end(function (res) { 
    if (res.error) throw new Error(res.error); 
    console.log(res.raw_body);
  });
