Hello the community!
I got some questions about cronjob system in Magento 2.
I'm currently working on a Magento 2.1.2 version and I'm facing an issue about Sitemap cronjob generation. It's simple Sitemap aren't update with cronjob.
1. Job format
Looking on the job declaration, I noticed that the job doesn't have schedule:
<job name="sitemap_generate" instance="Magento\Sitemap\Model\Observer" method="scheduledGenerateSitemaps" />
So, is it supposed to work anyway? What is the default schedule used?
2. Sitemap Start Time option
Under Store > Configuration > Catalog > XML Sitemap > Generation Settings, I can choose the Start Time.
I can see the cron expression on Core_config_data table under "crontab/default/jobs/sitemap_generate/schedule/cron_expr" path, but can't find any use in Magento source files.
There is something similar on the Sitemap Observer Model (app/code/magento/Sitemap/Model/Observer.php):
* Cronjob expression configuration
const XML_PATH_CRON_EXPR = 'crontab/default/jobs/generate_sitemaps/schedule/cron_expr';
It's "generate_sitemaps" instead of "sitemap_generate" but again the XML_PATH_CRON_EXPR constant is never used.
Is this feature really working?
To test, I added schedule to the job in crontab.xml and the job start to work...
I am missing something?
ps: Yes I generated my sitemaps under Marketing > Site Map and added cron:run on the server crontab.
Hey, I got the same issue, also I have ran manually the cron job task via cli using below command but didn't work.
bin/magento cron:run --group generate_sitemaps
bin/magento cron:run --group sitemap_generate
I tought the issue was related with my server time, I can't get it work properly.
