Using job filtersΒΆ

All processes are implemented with Chain-of-responsibility pattern and can be intercepted like with ASP.NET MVC Action Filters.

Define the filter

public class LogEverythingAttribute : JobFilterAttribute,
    IClientFilter, IServerFilter, IElectStateFilter, IApplyStateFilter
{
    private static readonly ILog Logger = LogProvider.GetCurrentClassLogger();

    public void OnCreating(CreatingContext context)
    {
        Logger.InfoFormat("Creating a job based on method `{0}`...", context.Job.Method.Name);
    }

    public void OnCreated(CreatedContext context)
    {
        Logger.InfoFormat(
            "Job that is based on method `{0}` has been created with id `{1}`",
            context.Job.Method.Name,
            context.BackgroundJob?.Id);
    }

    public void OnPerforming(PerformingContext context)
    {
        Logger.InfoFormat("Starting to perform job `{0}`", context.BackgroundJob.Id);
    }

    public void OnPerformed(PerformedContext context)
    {
        Logger.InfoFormat("Job `{0}` has been performed", context.BackgroundJob.Id);
    }

    public void OnStateElection(ElectStateContext context)
    {
        var failedState = context.CandidateState as FailedState;
        if (failedState != null)
        {
            Logger.WarnFormat(
                "Job `{0}` has been failed due to an exception `{1}`",
                context.BackgroundJob.Id,
                failedState.Exception);
        }
    }

    public void OnStateApplied(ApplyStateContext context, IWriteOnlyTransaction transaction)
    {
        Logger.InfoFormat(
            "Job `{0}` state was changed from `{1}` to `{2}`",
            context.BackgroundJob.Id,
            context.OldStateName,
            context.NewState.Name);
    }

    public void OnStateUnapplied(ApplyStateContext context, IWriteOnlyTransaction transaction)
    {
        Logger.InfoFormat(
            "Job `{0}` state `{1}` was unapplied.",
            context.BackgroundJob.Id,
            context.OldStateName);
    }
}

Apply it

Like ASP.NET filters, you can apply filters on method, class and globally:

[LogEverything]
public class EmailService
{
    [LogEverything]
    public static void Send() { }
}

GlobalJobFilters.Filters.Add(new LogEverythingAttribute());
