Specifying the schedule

Updated in 8.3

In the Schedule window, you create the schedule for Automation Server jobs or other scheduled Business Logic Management events. This window opens up when you click Change under Schedule when configuring the job.

Use the Schedule window to set the job schedule:

  • Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly - Choose how often the job should occur, and then specify the additional options on the right. These options change based on the occurrence you choose. For example, for a weekly job, specify the number of weeks between runs and on which days of the week to run.

  • Daily Frequency - To run the job once a day, click Occurs once at and specify the time. To run the job several times a day, click Occurs every and specify the frequency and the Starting at and Ending at times.

  • Duration - Specify the start and end dates. If you want the job to repeat forever, click No end date.

TIP: If you do not want an Automation Server job to run regularly, you can configure a disabled job with any schedule, and then manually run the Automation Server job when needed. For details, see Managing all Automation Server jobs: To force a job to run.
