Regarding Schedulers

Hi team,

 

Can someone help me with the creation of scheduler. I am able to create it but I need to know what needs to be put in "schedule" field.

 

By default, what is the time interval for which the scheduler runs and how to configure it?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Hi,

 

Please see this Article about formating Cron Strings:

https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article/CS210207

 

  • A cron expression will be comprised of 6 or 7 fields, separated by white space.
  • Every field except Year is mandatory
  • Special characters and their meanings:
    • * = all values in a field
    • ? = no specific value in a field
    • = specify range between values
      • 9-15 in the hour field
    • , = specify additional values
      • MON,FRI,SAT
    • / = specify increments
      • 0/10 in the seconds field translates to the seconds 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50
    • L = "last"
      • L in day of month field means the last day of the month
      • in day of week field it means or SAT
      • 4L in day of week field it mean the last WEDNESDAY of the month
      • Do not specify ranges of values to avoid misinterpreted results
    • W = weekday
      • 10W in day of month field means the nearest weekday to the 10th of the month; if the 10th is a Saturday the trigger would fire on Friday
      • If 1W were the value in the day of month field and it happened to be a Saturday the trigger would fire on Monday because it would still stay in this month and not jump back to the prior month
      • LW can be combined in the day of month field to trigger the last weekday of the month
    • = specify the nth day of the week of the month
      • 4#3 in day of week field translates to the third Wednesday of the month
      • If n#5 is specified and there is not 5 of n day of week in the month the trigger will not fire
  • The following table displays all of the field names and their allowed values and special characters
Field Name Allowed Values Allowed Special
Characters
Seconds 0-59 , - * /
Minutes 0-59 , - * /
Hours 0-23 , - * /
Day of month 1-31 , - * ? / L W
