Uploading currencies daily


I need to upload the list of currencies daily from OpenExchangeRate and store it on Kinvey. Is there a way to schedule a task that will run everyday on the backend ?




Right now, Kinvey does not support "cron" jobs. See these answers.

You can however just JavaScript, PHP, or anything else running on your own server to kick these off on Kinvey. You can write all the code on Kinvey in a Custom Endpoint, then have a remote server "hit" that Custom Endpoint URL on some schedule.

It's not ideal of course, but it is the only option right now.

Scheduled tasks are now supported! All non-legacy plans should have access.
