Delayed content scheduled job events

Hello everyone,

Today I was working on content events that adds the products under the category. As soon as you publish the category that will trigger the publish event and associates the products with the category that is being saved. This is working perfectly. 

The other scenarios where this was needed as where a category is scheduled to be published at a particular future time then those products should be auto assigned as soon as category is published. Now this required publish events to be triggered. I thought the job that keeps running is "Publish Delayed Content Versions" should handle those events by itself but unfortunately that wasn't supported. 

Per many blog posts it was suggested to write your own scheduled job that does it, This is what I'm sharing with you. Hopefully, It saves some time for you in future.

So I ended up writing my own scheduled job that looks for delayed contents and publishes them - 

  private void PublishOnBehalfOf(ContentReference contentLink, string user)
        {
            IPrincipal currentPrincipal = Thread.CurrentPrincipal;
            try
            {
                Thread.CurrentPrincipal = new GenericPrincipal(new GenericIdentity(user), null);

                var content = _contentLoader.Get<ContentData>(contentLink).CreateWritableClone();

                if (content != null)
                {
                    _contentRepository.Save((content as IContent), EPiServer.DataAccess.SaveAction.Publish | EPiServer.DataAccess.SaveAction.SkipValidation, AccessLevel.NoAccess);
                }
            }
            finally
            {
                Thread.CurrentPrincipal = currentPrincipal;
            }
        }

Let me know if full code is required. Thanks a lot for reading.
