Running A cronjob in a pod in Kubernetes

0 votes

I have a backend nodeJS application running in a kubernetes cluster. Now I want to run two cron jobs to be scheduled every month. The cron jobs are in a JS file. How do I create a job that runs those JS files in the pod running that service every month using Kubernetes ?

Unfortunately, you cannot run the CronJob inside a container of your application.

But you can create a container which will contain your cronjob and necessary environment for running it and schedule to run that pod by a CronJob.
