Update dispatches of a periodic job?

Is there a way to easily update a periodic job? For example, if we have 3 different periodic jobs and make an update to the parent job, we would have to run nomad job periodic stop jobname/periodiclaunch a few times and then nomad job dispatch force jobname a few more times.

Is there an easier way to do this?

Hi @brettpatricklarson at the moment there isn’t a better way to manage instantiated periodic jobs (i.e. through its parent). Under the hood, each periodic job is distinct from its parent once it gets created, which makes it hard to re-associate later.

That isn’t to say we wouldn’t like to improve this at some point, along with being able to create periodic job plans, deployments, etc.

grep and awk and pipes to the rescue for now. Thank you!
