This bundle will allow you to easily manage scheduling for Symfony's console commands (native or not) with cron expression. See Wiki for Details

Versions & Dependencies

Version 5.x has the goal to use modern Php and Symfony features and low maintenance. So only Php >= 8.0 and Symfony ^5.4|^6.0 are supported at the moment.

The following table shows the compatibilities of different versions of the bundle :

Version Symfony PHP
5.0 (master) ^5.4 + ^6.0 >=8.0
4.x ^4.4.20 + ^5.3 >=8.0
3.x ^4.4.20 + ^5.3 >=7.3
2.2.x ^3.4 + ^4.3 ^7.1


When using Symfony Flex there is an installation recipe.
To use it, you have to enable contrib recipes on your project :

composer config extra.symfony.allow-contrib true
composer req dukecity/command-scheduler-bundle

Update Database

If you're using DoctrineMigrationsBundle (recommended way):

php bin/console make:migration
php bin/console doctrine:migrations:migrate

Without DoctrineMigrationsBundle:

php bin/console doctrine:schema:update --force

Install Assets

php bin/console assets:install --symlink --relative public
