    You can use the default Sitecore Publishing agent (Sitecore.Tasks.PublishAgent). It will use the Publishing service. May 29, 2018 at 9:30

You can use the default Sitecore Publishing Agent. It is found in the Sitecore.config. You can search for it by using Sitecore.Tasks.PublishAgent.

You just need to configure the source and target database (default: master and web). I had asked the same question to Sitecore Support and their response was that the methods from the Sitecore.Publishing.PublishManager class to perform new publishing.

For an example:

PublishManager.PublishSmart(database, targets, languageArray);
PublishManager.PublishIncremental(database, targets, languageArray); 

In Sitecore 8.2 Update -2 default PublishAgent works fine and calls the new Publish Module.

  • Is it possible to have a similar agent on the publishing service "application"? I mean, I want to be sure that the publishing service publishes even if the content manager is down. Sep 20, 2019 at 14:32
  • Yes it is possible but you’ll need to write custom code. I would suggest to use hangfire Sep 20, 2019 at 14:33
