Description

When you create a new task in the scheduler, you can see a list of available tasks in Class.

Here, you have to select "Execute console commands" to see a list of the console commands.

This makes the usability a bit clunky, because you do not have a full list of what is available. You have to choose "console command" and only then do you see the console commands (or not).

Extension authors may want to make their schedulable tasks available as console commands because this adds more flexibility (as they can be called on the console or via cron directly). However, having the commands then be a bit hidden is a downside of this.

Possible solution

  • add the console commands to the list of scheduler tasks to be visible like any other scheduler task.
