Replied to Custom Code In Scheduler

Okay, i'll try and be more specific. I have this command that got optional argument.

protected $signature = 'affiliatenetwork:fetchrevenue {affiliate_network_id?}';

This gets called from my kernel every five minutes through

$schedule->command('affiliatenetwork:fetchrevenue')->everyFiveMinutes();

But every night at 01 AM i want to run it with a specific argument. But that argument can be different on my dev site and the live site. So to always get the current one, i want to get it with a simple DB::get(). But i dont want to run that DB::get() every time my schedule run, and only when the nightly run is going on. Does this help explain it?

Replied to Inner Joins

Yes, it is because you are not joining in users and products. You are joining in comments 2 times. If you look at this you can see the correct syntax.

https://laravel.com/docs/5.8/queries#joins

$comments = DB::table('comments')
         ->join('users','comments.user_id', '=', 'users.id') //I swapped 'comments' for 'users' and also added the constaint for better readability
         ->Join('products','comments.product_id', '=', 'products.id') //I swapped 'comments' for 'products' and also added the constaint for better readability
         -> select ('comment.*')
         -> paginate(self::COMMENTS_PER_PAGE);
    return view ('product.show', compact ('product','comments'));

isnt the problem here that you are joining comments on comments? Shouldn't it be "select count(*) as aggregate from comments inner join users on comments.user_id = users.id inner join products on comments.product_id = products.id" ?

SELET COUNT(*) AS aggregate
FROM comments
INNER JOIN users
    ON comments.user_id = users.id
INNER JOIN products
    ON comments.product_id = products.id

You are joining in comments instead of both users and products.

Started a new Conversation Custom Code In Scheduler

Hi everyone. My question is this, within my schedular i have multiple job. But some of them require some extra code to be executed correctly.

$schedule->command('exchangerates:update')->hourly();
$schedule->command('exchangerates:updateyesterday')->dailyAt('00:10');

$now = new \DateTime();
$end = clone $now;
$start = clone $now;
$end->modify('-1 day');
$start->modify('-7 days');

$schedule->command('affiliatenetwork:fetchrevenueperiod ' .$start->format('Y-m-d'). ' ' .$end->format('Y-m-d'). ' 29')->dailyAt('00:10');

But this way all my datetime code is being run every minute which is not very effective. Is there a way to make so it only does the code IF the command needing it is being executed?

Something like

if(dailyAt('00:10')) {
    $now = new \DateTime();
    $end = clone $now;
    $start = clone $now;
    $end->modify('-1 day');
    $start->modify('-7 days');

    $schedule->command('affiliatenetwork:fetchrevenueperiod ' .$start->format('Y-m-d'). ' ' .$end->format('Y-m-d'). ' 29')->dailyAt('00:10');
}

Hope this makes any kind of sense.
