Process Scheduler is an add-on that allows for easy scheduling of Heroku processes depending on the hour of the day and day of the week.

Configuring Process Scheduler to scale your processes of any kind is done in a few clicks through a calendar web UI and will allow you to save on dyno hours with very minimal efforts.

Provisioning the add-on

Process Scheduler can be attached to a Heroku application via the CLI:

$ heroku addons:add process-scheduler
-----> Adding process-scheduler to sharp-mountain-4005... done, v18 (free)

After installing Process Scheduler, it should be configured to properly scale your processes.

Service setup

The Process Scheduler dashboard allows you to configure the schedule for each of the process types of your application.

The dashboard can be accessed via the CLI:

$ heroku addons:open process-scheduler
Opening process-scheduler for sharp-mountain-4005…

or by visiting the Heroku apps web interface and selecting the application in question. Select Process Scheduler from the Add-ons menu.

The first time you visit the Process Scheduler dashboard, you will need to fill in your Heroku API key and your time zone before configuring your processes schedules.

Removing the add-on

Process Scheduler can be removed via the CLI.

This will destroy all associated data and cannot be undone!

$ heroku addons:remove process-scheduler
-----> Removing process-scheduler from sharp-mountain-4005... done, v20 (free)


All Process Scheduler support and runtime issues should be submitted via one of the Heroku Support channels. Any non-support related issues or product feedback is welcome at the Process Scheduler UserVoice.
