Placeholders you could use in cron job URL

EasyCron added placeholder support in cron job URL today.

You could use placeholders:
in your cron job URL.

__RANDOM__ will be replaced with a random 12-digit integer when your cron job is fired.
And __TIMESTAMP__ will be replaced with unix timestamp.

For example, URL
could finally be http://www.example.com?123456789000 when it's fired.

Random integer or timestamp in URL will prevent EasyCron's requests from hitting cache in your proxy or server.


  1. I need cron_job_id to be posted as GET or POST request along with Cron URL when its fired, how to get it?

    1. I know I can edit cron url and add cron_job_id with it but I don't want to hit API request just for that.

    2. Thanks for your comment. There are 2 methods to do what you requested: 1) manually edit the URL to include the cron_job_id; 2) do it via API. How do you create your cron job (manually or API)? You could contact us at https://www.easycron.com/contact for further discussion.

  2. However, it is possible to become employed in far fewer job applications than 200 made over four months, the current statistics for the average job seeker. guarantor
