I have created a Module, Now I wanted that module or controller to run daily once.

I have created below Code.


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Cron:etc/crontab.xsd">
    <group id="default">
        <job name="custom_AutoSynch_cronjob" instance="Autosynch\synchProduct\Cron\Test" method="execute">
            <schedule>*/5 * * * *</schedule>

How can I start cron job Manually ?

where can I check that this job is working and can I write any success or error messages ?


You can manage it by magento2-module-cron-schedule module.


Shows a new Adminhtml menu entry System > Cronjob > View Cronjob Configuration.

  • I have installed this extension. and ran the php bin/magento cron:run but my schedule says it missed. – JB Pakalapati Jun 4 '18 at 5:58
  • @JBPakalapati check admin configuration of that module and configure it. – Nikunj Vadariya Jun 4 '18 at 5:59

You can run CRON by this command: php bin/magento cron:run by terminal or cmd. Even you can configure CRON in server by ssh using crontab -e command. Maybe you will need root user of server you can learn about Magento 2 CRON configuration from here : Magento 2 cron. You can check CRON successful run or not from cron_schedule database table. You can check CRON status by this command on the server : sudo service cron status.
