You can create lazy job using
start
param in launch/async
To start use start() function or join()/await()

@gildor something like:
Copy code
fun startUpdate(): Lazy<Job> {
    return lazy {
        GlobalScope.launch {
            hierachyUpdater.doUpdate()
        }
    }
}
?

No
As I said, there is
start
param in launch/async functions
Check docs of launch/async

Copy code

    hierachyUpdater.doUpdate()
}

Yes, this is what I meant. But I wouldn't use GlobalScope
