Specification

Property Type Description

.apiVersion

string

APIVersion defines the versioned schema of this representation of an object. Servers should convert recognized schemas to the latest internal value, and may reject unrecognized values. More info: https://git.k8s.io/community/contributors/devel/api-conventions.md#resources

.kind

string

Kind is a string value representing the REST resource this object represents. Servers may infer this from the endpoint the client submits requests to. Cannot be updated. In CamelCase. More info: https://git.k8s.io/community/contributors/devel/api-conventions.md#types-kinds

.metadata

ObjectMeta meta/v1

Standard object’s metadata. More info: https://git.k8s.io/community/contributors/devel/api-conventions.md#metadata

.spec

object

CronJobSpec describes how the job execution will look like and when it will actually run.

.status

object

CronJobStatus represents the current state of a cron job.

.spec
Description

CronJobSpec describes how the job execution will look like and when it will actually run.

Type

object

Required
  • schedule

  • jobTemplate

Property Type Description

concurrencyPolicy

string

Specifies how to treat concurrent executions of a Job. Valid values are: - "Allow" (default): allows CronJobs to run concurrently; - "Forbid": forbids concurrent runs, skipping next run if previous run hasn’t finished yet; - "Replace": cancels currently running job and replaces it with a new one

failedJobsHistoryLimit

integer

The number of failed finished jobs to retain. This is a pointer to distinguish between explicit zero and not specified. Defaults to 1.

jobTemplate

object

JobTemplateSpec describes the data a Job should have when created from a template

schedule

string

The schedule in Cron format, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron.

startingDeadlineSeconds

integer

Optional deadline in seconds for starting the job if it misses scheduled time for any reason. Missed jobs executions will be counted as failed ones.

successfulJobsHistoryLimit

integer

The number of successful finished jobs to retain. This is a pointer to distinguish between explicit zero and not specified. Defaults to 3.

suspend

boolean

This flag tells the controller to suspend subsequent executions, it does not apply to already started executions. Defaults to false.

.spec.jobTemplate
Description

JobTemplateSpec describes the data a Job should have when created from a template

Type

Property Type Description

metadata

ObjectMeta meta/v1

Standard object’s metadata of the jobs created from this template. More info: https://git.k8s.io/community/contributors/devel/api-conventions.md#metadata

Required
  • template

Property Type Description

activeDeadlineSeconds

integer

Specifies the duration in seconds relative to the startTime that the job may be active before the system tries to terminate it; value must be positive integer

backoffLimit

integer

Specifies the number of retries before marking this job failed. Defaults to 6

completions

integer

Specifies the desired number of successfully finished pods the job should be run with. Setting to nil means that the success of any pod signals the success of all pods, and allows parallelism to have any positive value. Setting to 1 means that parallelism is limited to 1 and the success of that pod signals the success of the job. More info: https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/workloads/controllers/jobs-run-to-completion/

manualSelector

boolean

manualSelector controls generation of pod labels and pod selectors. Leave manualSelector unset unless you are certain what you are doing. When false or unset, the system pick labels unique to this job and appends those labels to the pod template. When true, the user is responsible for picking unique labels and specifying the selector. Failure to pick a unique label may cause this and other jobs to not function correctly. However, You may see manualSelector=true in jobs that were created with the old extensions/v1beta1 API. More info: https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/workloads/controllers/jobs-run-to-completion/#specifying-your-own-pod-selector

parallelism

integer

Specifies the maximum desired number of pods the job should run at any given time. The actual number of pods running in steady state will be less than this number when ((.spec.completions - .status.successful) < .spec.parallelism), i.e. when the work left to do is less than max parallelism. More info: https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/workloads/controllers/jobs-run-to-completion/

selector

LabelSelector meta/v1

/apis/batch/v1beta1/cronjobs

Table 1. Global guery parameters
Parameter Type Description

continue

string

The continue option should be set when retrieving more results from the server. Since this value is server defined, clients may only use the continue value from a previous query result with identical query parameters (except for the value of continue) and the server may reject a continue value it does not recognize. If the specified continue value is no longer valid whether due to expiration (generally five to fifteen minutes) or a configuration change on the server the server will respond with a 410 ResourceExpired error indicating the client must restart their list without the continue field. This field is not supported when watch is true. Clients may start a watch from the last resourceVersion value returned by the server and not miss any modifications.

fieldSelector

string

A selector to restrict the list of returned objects by their fields. Defaults to everything.

includeUninitialized

boolean

If true, partially initialized resources are included in the response.

labelSelector

string

A selector to restrict the list of returned objects by their labels. Defaults to everything.

limit

integer

limit is a maximum number of responses to return for a list call. If more items exist, the server will set the `continue` field on the list metadata to a value that can be used with the same initial query to retrieve the next set of results. Setting a limit may return fewer than the requested amount of items (up to zero items) in the event all requested objects are filtered out and clients should only use the presence of the continue field to determine whether more results are available. Servers may choose not to support the limit argument and will return all of the available results. If limit is specified and the continue field is empty, clients may assume that no more results are available. This field is not supported if watch is true.

The server guarantees that the objects returned when using continue will be identical to issuing a single list call without a limit - that is, no objects created, modified, or deleted after the first request is issued will be included in any subsequent continued requests. This is sometimes referred to as a consistent snapshot, and ensures that a client that is using limit to receive smaller chunks of a very large result can ensure they see all possible objects. If objects are updated during a chunked list the version of the object that was present at the time the first list result was calculated is returned.

pretty

string

If 'true', then the output is pretty printed.

resourceVersion

string

When specified with a watch call, shows changes that occur after that particular version of a resource. Defaults to changes from the beginning of history. When specified for list: - if unset, then the result is returned from remote storage based on quorum-read flag; - if it's 0, then we simply return what we currently have in cache, no guarantee; - if set to non zero, then the result is at least as fresh as given rv.

timeoutSeconds

integer

Timeout for the list/watch call. This limits the duration of the call, regardless of any activity or inactivity.

watch

boolean

Watch for changes to the described resources and return them as a stream of add, update, and remove notifications. Specify resourceVersion.

boolean

If true, partially initialized resources are included in the response.

labelSelector

string
