module ActiveJob::Enqueuing::ClassMethods

Includes the perform_later method for job initialization.

Public instance methods

Push a job onto the queue. By default the arguments must be either String, Integer, Float, NilClass, TrueClass, FalseClass, BigDecimal, Symbol, Date, Time, DateTime, ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone, ActiveSupport::Duration, Hash, ActiveSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess, Array, Range, or GlobalID::Identification instances, although this can be extended by adding custom serializers.

Returns an instance of the job class queued with arguments available in Job#arguments or false if the enqueue did not succeed.

After the attempted enqueue, the job will be yielded to an optional block.
