Before you begin

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable the Google Cloud Scheduler API.
  3. Set up authentication with a service account so you can access the API from your local workstation.

Installing the client library

npm install @google-cloud/scheduler

Using the client library

  // const projectId = "PROJECT_ID"
  // const locationId = "LOCATION_ID" // see:
  // const url = "" // where should we say hello?

  const scheduler = require('@google-cloud/scheduler');

  // Create a client.
  const client = new scheduler.CloudSchedulerClient();

  // Construct the fully qualified location path.
  const parent = client.locationPath(projectId, locationId);

  // Construct the request body.
  const job = {
    httpTarget: {
      uri: url,
      httpMethod: 'POST',
      body: Buffer.from('Hello World'),
    schedule: '* * * * *',
    timeZone: 'America/Los_Angeles',

  const request = {
    parent: parent,
    job: job,

  // Use the client to send the job creation request.
  const [response] = await client.createJob(request);
  console.log(`Created job: ${}`);

This library follows Semantic Versioning.

This library is considered to be General Availability (GA). This means it is stable; the code surface will not change in backwards-incompatible ways unless absolutely necessary (e.g. because of critical security issues) or with an extensive deprecation period. Issues and requests against GA libraries are addressed with the highest priority.
