I am looking for a way to list all magento 2 cron jobs. Is it available somewhere easy to review?

You can run n98-magerun2 command line utility to list all cronjobs.

If you run the following command in your magento installation, it will display all the cronjobs available in your magento.

n98-magerun2 sys:cron:list

    Third party tool but still, I agree that it's very useful. Perfect for development

  • This is not working for me.. I am not sure whether this is available at present or not. I have downloaded this plugin but "n98-magerun2 sys:cron:list" command says "bash: n98-magerun2: command not found". Commented Feb 20 at 6:52

I decided to get cron jobs list by performing following simple query on a database:

select job_code from cron_schedule GROUP BY job_code;

but it's neither handy nor detailed. Maybe somebody has a better idea...


@Luke I needed to review CRON jobs too and I couldn't find any simple solution.

I went the lazy way and used grep to find all <job> entries and put them into one file for easier review:

grep -r -A 2 "<job" . > cron.txt

It's not a great solution, but it may help at this point.


You can check following URLs for cron job in Magento 2.

Get cron list from database using following SQL query:

select job_code from cron_schedule GROUP BY job_code;

    The question is about listing active cron jobs, not running them or creating new ones.

Inspired by Wojtek Naruniec's answer (https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/198682/104439), but tweaked a bit to skip irrelevant directories, and avoid the redirected file from reading itself;

grep -r -A 2 "<job" app/code/ vendor/ > var/system_cronjobs.txt

Run from the M2 root directory and it will get any system cron jobs that run during cron:run executions. Plus dump to var/ so it works on MCloud as well.
