This package provides a hosted service that can run periodically.

The concept is from this documentation:

How to add this to your project:
How to use:

Implement a class that inherits TimedHostedService.

public class MyHostedService : TimedHostedService<IMyService>
	protected override TimeSpan StartDelay => TimeSpan.FromSeconds(3);

	protected override TimeSpan ExecutionInterval => TimeSpan.FromDays(1);
	public MyHostedService(ILogger<MyHostedService> logger, IServiceScopeFactory services) 
		: base(logger, services)
	protected override Task RunScoped(IMyService myService)
		return Task.CompletedTask;

Register the hosted service in startup:

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)

Possible configurations:

  • ExecutionInterval: How often the job ticks after starting (default: 60 seconds)
  • StartDelay: Delay the first tick for a specific time after starting (default: 0)
  • OnlySingleInstance: If the last tick is still no other tick is started even if the executionInterval is over (default: false)

Possible hook points:

  • RunScoped: Execute your logic here (mandatory)
  • OnStartup: Is called before the timer starts ticking (optional)
  • OnRunSuccessful: Is executed after the current tick is over (optional)
  • OnError: Can be used to handle errors that occur within a running tick


  • Errors inside "ExecutionInterval" are catched and can be handled with "OnError"
  • "RunScoped" is running in it's ioc scope. The other hook points are outside of this scope.
