Class Public methods
new(*arguments)

Creates a new job instance. Takes the arguments that will be passed to the perform method.

# File activejob/lib/active_job/core.rb, line 70
def initialize(*arguments)
  @arguments  = arguments
  @job_id     = SecureRandom.uuid
  @queue_name = self.class.queue_name
  @priority   = self.class.priority
  @executions = 0
end
Instance Public methods
deserialize(job_data)

Attaches the stored job data to the current instance. Receives a hash returned from serialize

Examples

class DeliverWebhookJob < ActiveJob::Base
  attr_writer :attempt_number

  def attempt_number
    @attempt_number ||= 0
  end

  def serialize
    super.merge('attempt_number' => attempt_number + 1)
  end

  def deserialize(job_data)
    super
    self.attempt_number = job_data['attempt_number']
  end

  rescue_from(Timeout::Error) do |exception|
    raise exception if attempt_number > 5
    retry_job(wait: 10)
  end
end
# File activejob/lib/active_job/core.rb, line 119
def deserialize(job_data)
  self.job_id               = job_data["job_id"]
  self.provider_job_id      = job_data["provider_job_id"]
  self.queue_name           = job_data["queue_name"]
  self.priority             = job_data["priority"]
  self.serialized_arguments = job_data["arguments"]
  self.executions           = job_data["executions"]
  self.locale               = job_data["locale"] || I18n.locale.to_s
end
serialize()

Returns a hash with the job data that can safely be passed to the queueing adapter.
