[Fixed]-How can i pass argument to celery task?


delay will work. This method is convenient as it looks like calling a regular function: see doc here


delay is clearly convenient, but if you want to set additional execution options you have to use apply_async.

task_a.apply_async(args=[arg1, arg2])

Note that the argument passed is a list.


To pass arguments to task with apply_async() you need to wrap them in a list and then pass the list as first argument, I.e. apply_async([arg1, arg2, arg3]). See the documentation for more details and examples.

Use delay() as an alternative. The benefit is that it preserves more or less function’s parameters interface, i.e. it is not needed to wrap the args in a list.
