This beta finally adds the Queue property directly to a job and adds all the required overloads to BackgroundJob, RecurringJob classes and IBackgroundJobClient and IRecurringJobManager interfaces to specify queues dynamically at run-time and preserve them between retries. Dashboard UI is now implemented in full-width, so long method names are no longer a problem.


  • Added – Introduce the Job.Queue property, so jobs now can have their own queue specified.
  • Added – Method overloads to create recurring jobs directly with a custom default queue.
  • Added – Method overloads to create background jobs directly with a custom default queue.
  • AddedIBackgroundJobClient.Create method overloads with the new queue parameter.

  • Changed – Don’t display queue name in state transition list when it’s the default one.
  • Changed – Re-implement TaskExtensions.WaitOneAsync only with the RegisterWaitForSingleObject method.
  • Changed – Expose state data dictionaries in list DTOs when supported by storage.
  • Changed – Make it possible to display methods of non-loaded jobs in Dashboard UI when supported by storage.
  • Fixed – Check job details for the null value before passing it to renderers (regression).
  • DeprecatedAddOrUpdate overloads with optional params defined in the RecurringJobManagerExtensions class.
  • DeprecatedAddOrUpdate overloads with optional parameters defined in the RecurringJob class.
  • DeprecatedAddOrUpdate method overloads with no recurringJobId parameter.
