Job types overview

AutoConfig job types are a unique component of Gunbot trading automation. Each job type serves a unique purpose, allowing traders to customize their trading strategies and automate tasks with ease.

Gunbot offers various job types that provide traders access to different data points. Selecting the appropriate job type based on the specific task you need to perform is crucial. Some job types are designed to scan markets for data related to trading pairs that Gunbot is not currently processing, while others are intended for use with pairs that are already running in Gunbot. These utilize data that is already available internally and do not consume extra API usage.


The addPairs, settings, and removePairs job types are the most commonly used AutoConfig job types. They enable traders to create a comprehensive workflow for adding pairs, managing their settings, and ultimately removing them. In most cases, these job types will suffice for your automation needs.

Overview of AutoConfig Job Types

See the table below for a list of job types categorized by their primary function. The job types that use external data request ticker data from the exchange and are marked as such. While those that use internal data will be faster to execute and consume no API usage, making it best to choose them whenever possible for the task you want to automate.
