If anyone else is still trying to get this to work; don't waste your time if you're using VS 2012; it just doesn't.
I edited the manifest removing the dependency and was able to install it - but when I started Visual Studio it failed to load this plugin
The 'WebJobsVsPackage' did not load correctly. The underlying reason is:
"Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.12.0... The system could not find the file specified'
The statement at the top that this works with VS 2012 is incorrect.
If you have an existing Azure web job with a schedule this plugin will update that job when you deploy your code. You just have to make sure the names match up. The Azure web job must have the exact same name as your console app project or a second job (without a schedule) will be created.
does not exist.
Jobs only seem to get added to the triggered subfolder despite choosing 'continuous'.
As per @rustd Pranav's blog post , there's been a major update to WebJobs, maybe time to review the addin. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2014/03/27/announcing-0-2-0-alpha2-preview-of-windows-azure-webjobs-sdk.aspx
I run a real estate website, and so I need the "Properties" folder in the root to map to my application, not VS's internal nonsense. So I have changed this value in the project:
And created a folder in the project called "AppProperties". But unfortunately, this add-in does not look for that variable, and instead hard-codes a lookup to the Project/Properties/WebJobs.xml file. This throws an error on my system, making the add-in useless.
Would it be possible to make this add-in lookup the variable instead of hard-coding the path, please?
I have version 0.1.3-beta. I seem to be having the EF6 problem. My console app references another project in my solution which references EF6. Unfortunately, I don't get the EF6 dll's in my webjob when I publish. In fact, I don't get them in my website either. Any ideas?
I just installed the plugin and linked a WebJob to a WebSite. I now get this build error - I'm on .NET 4.5.
