Nick, if it helps I could quickly ssh in and take a look if it suits you?

Just to be clear about the problem I am experiencing, there is a scheduler app on the dashboard (/apps/dashboard/index.html). When I click on it, it lists several Running Xqueries and has several items in the scheduled Jobs tab.

The problem I am experiencing is that I when I try to call the scheduler:schedule-xquery-cron-job() function in my code, eXist-db complains that "err:XPST0081 No namespace defined for prefix scheduler"

In the past, I would manually include the exist-scheduler.jar file in $EXIST_HOME/lib/extensions, enable the module in conf.xml and set scheduler = true in /extensions/ and then run After that, I was able to schedule and unschedule the running of my Xquery code.

Has anything changed with scheduler? It sounds like it is no longer needed to manually include the jar? How can I be sure my code can reference it?

The documentation makes reference to the conf.xml settings ( but it does not mention the file. Am I doing anything wrong? Do I need to include an import statement at the top of my code like I do with other modules like ft-client? Perhaps something like this?
import module namespace scheduler = "";
