To go with the new System.Queueable interface, I'm looking for the analogy of:

  • System.isBatch()
  • System.isFuture()
  • System.isScheduled()

Is there a System.isQueued() or something?


Spring '16 brings us a new method:

System.isQueueable() which takes care of this requirement.


As of Spring '16, isBatch() does NOT return true from inside Queueable implementation.

  • But how do you distinguish between being in a batch job and a queued job? :) – kbentsen Jun 22 '15 at 23:21
  • @kbentsen if (context instanceof QueueableContext) ... – bigassforce Jun 23 '15 at 9:24

I think that better is option is use this query, to veryfy if your class is in the queue

SELECT Id, ApexClassId from AsyncApexJob WHERE JobType = 'Queueable' AND Status = 'Queued' AND ApexClassId in (SELECT Id FROM ApexClass WHERE NAME = 'Imp')
