Without options, this cronjob will execute all notifications.

id

The option id is optional. It can be used to define the notifications to executed.

Possible values

  • ID (integer): The ID of one notification rule you want to execute

  • List: A comma separated list of IDs to execute multiple notification rules at once, like: 1,2,3

You can find the ID in the first column of the notifications list table in section “Notifications”.

Notifications ID
// ID example:
bash script.sh Asa2_Module_Notifications_Cron_RepoNotifications -id=2

// List example:
bash script.sh Asa2_Module_Notifications_Cron_RepoNotifications -id=1,2,3,5
Notifications bash

php

With the php option, you can tell the ASA2 cronjob what PHP executable it should use to execute the command. With some webhosters the standard command “php” executes an outdated version and there is a special command for each version, e.g. “php73” or “php74”.

Please check which PHP version is required for the use of ASA2 here: https://bit.ly/asa2-php-version

bash script.sh Asa2_Module_Repo_Cron_Refresh --limit=10 --php=php74
