there is an easy solution to your issue. Simply use a Cache Task Manager. Create a new task, and within code, instantiate Ensemble service Ens.Director,


Set tSC=##class(Ens.Director).CreateBusinessService("your service configration name",.tService)

If ($$$ISERR(tSC)) Quit
Set tSC=tService.ProcessInput(%request,.output)
If ($$$ISERR(tSC)) Quit
If $IsObject($G(output)) {

   // do whatever you want here


thank's Daniel for the answer , my problem is how to trig my service each houre , is there any loop ? i'm beginner in caché .



Following on from Daniel's instructions... Once you have created a class with the suggested your code to invoke your service, add this as a task in Task Manager.  You can ask Task Manager to invoke this every hour.



To run Business Service once an hour:

  1. Specify Ens.InboundAdapter as an adapter for your Business Service
  2. On Production Configuration page, in Business Service configuration set Call Interval to 3600.
  3. Restart Business Service. It would now be run once an hour (every 36000 seconds)
