This addin provides an awesome workflow for deploying Azure WebJobs alongside your Azure Web Site.

Saved me so much time. Thanks!

  • This extension cannot be installed because the following references are missing: Visual Studio MPF 12.0

    • I have VS2012 and VS2012 SDK installed but I'm still getting this issue.
      Can this package be bundled in some way, or where do I find and install it?
    • Hi Anders, could you repair Visual Studio and try again?
    • I received the same error with 2012 Premium. 2013 Ultimate worked.
    • Any workaround for this? Other than installing the MPF thing https://mpfproj11.codeplex.com/
    • Remove the line <Dependency.. which references MPF 12 from the extension.vsixmanifest file in the .vsix archive. That will do it.
    • 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.
  • This doesn't work when the console app already has a reference back to the web app

    • Funnily enough, a fairly common scenario
  • Remove / Edit WebJob

    • How would I go about removing the association between my Web application and a Web Job project?
      Also, how would I go about changing the schedule of a continuous Web Job using this extension?
    • 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.

    • Hi Sayed, 
      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
  • Breaks build with a silverlight project
    1 Posts | Last post July 04, 2014
    • This extension breaks the build of my web project (which references a silverlight one), with this error message : "No Silverlight project specified for Silverlight output".
  • Extension will not work if "Properties" folder does not exist
    1 Posts | Last post June 28, 2014
    • 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?
  • EF6

    • Nice plugin, but it doesn't seem to deploy EF6. 
    • @Jeff, only VS 2013 is supported for this plugin. Please try the latest version which fixes the issue with deploying EF
    • 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?
    • We are having similar issues with other DLLs from NuGet packages, e.g. RazorMachine.
    • Same problem here with version 0.2 and VS 2013 Ultimate Update 2 where my website fails to deploy properly once I add a WebJob to it, apparently because of missing EF6 dependencies.
    • I was able to fix my EF deployment problems by unchecking the "Remove additional files at destination" checkbox in the File Publish Options when publishing.
  • Can't find IDisposable after adding WebJob

    • I just installed the plugin and linked a WebJob to a WebSite. I now get this build error - I'm on .NET 4.5.
      The type 'System.IDisposable' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Runtime, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.
    • I get the same message :(, did you find a solution?

    • Does this work with the express editions of Visual Studio?
