Arcus Background Jobs

Background job development in Azure with a breeze

Securely Receive CloudEvents

The Arcus.BackgroundJobs.CloudEvents library provides a collection of background jobs to securely receive CloudEvents.

This allows workloads to asynchronously process event from other components without exposing a public endpoint.

How does it work?

An Azure Service Bus Topic resource is required to receive CloudEvents on. CloudEvent messages on this Topic will be processed by a background job.

Automatically Invalidate Azure Key Vault Secrets

You can write your own background job(s) by deriving from CloudEventBackgroundJob which already takes care of topic subscription creation/deletion on start/stop of the job.


You can easily implement your own job by implementing the ProcessMessageAsync method to prcocess new CloudEvents.

using Arcus.BackgroundJobs.CloudEvents;
using CloudNative.CloudEvents;
using Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration;
using Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection;
using Microsoft.Extensions.Logging;

public class MyBackgroundJob : CloudEventBackgroundJob
    public MyBackgroundJob(
        IConfiguration configuration,
        IServiceProvider serviceProvider,
        ILogger<CloudEventBackgroundJob> logger) : base(configuration, serviceProvider, logger)


    protected override async Task ProcessMessageAsync(
        CloudEvent message,
        AzureServiceBusMessageContext messageContext,
        MessageCorrelationInfo correlationInfo,
        CancellationToken cancellationToken)
            // Process the CloudEvent message...
