Current behavior

Hello, I just want to ask about usage.
If I want to write my own code or script where should I do it? Should I add extension?

I need script that can do get request -> save data -> some processing -> post request. That fires for example every hour. In strapi i remember there were cron tasks where I can code it.

Thank for any help.

Expected behavior

Squidex does not support cron tasks. You need to build a custom service which cron support or a script that you trigger by cronjobs in Linux.

I don’t know your techstack, so I cannot give you a very concrete recommendation.

Thank you for your answer. Yes I decided to use cron task inside linux with custom script.
