How to check the next execution date of an Airflow DAG

As far as I know, there is no way to check the next execution date in the Airflow web interface. It may be possible if you make some customizations of your Airflow instance or use a plugin.

If you are quite desperate, you may try to copy the cron expression to and check the execution date using that website.

In this article, I will use something way simpler. All we need is the airflow command-line interface.

We have to copy the DAG id and use the next_execution command like this:

airflow next_execution dag_id

In the output, we are going to get the next execution date.
