Feature suggestion :
Currently ActiveJob allows to retry jobs with
retry_job queue allowing to set the
It would be nice to allow changing/adding parameters during the retry.
I want to retry a job up to 5 times, each time with a bigger interval between the retries.
I would pass an optional/keyword parameter
retry_count to the job signature, and depending on the value I would schedule the retry further in time
class MyJob < ApplicationJob rescue_from(JobError) do reschedule_time.try do |wait_time| retry_job( retry_count: (@retry_count + 1), # Change retry_count wait: wait_time ) end end def perform(*args, retry_count: 0) @retry_count = retry_count raise JobError end def reschedule_time # This can eventually be configured in a Settings class / per user config case retry_count when 0..2 1.day when 3..4 5.days when 5 2.weeks else nil end end end
Right now what I am doing is just calling the Job name again
rescue_from(JobError) do reschedule_time.try do |wait_time| MyJob .set(wait_until: wait_duration.from_now) .perform_later( retry_count: (@retry_count + 1) ) end end
A typical use for this would be automation flows where we want to keep sending emails until an action is performed : reminders, etc.
