Set Update rate of timer at run time

Is there a way to set update rate f timer dynamically, I am looking for a way to reset the timer when a service executes.

Yes, you can update its Configuration Table.

For example:

- Retrieve the actual configuration table of the thing Timer and create a DataShape ("TimerSettingsDS") from the result

var result = Things["thing_name"].GetConfigurationTable({tableName: "Settings"});

- Service to update the configuration table "Settings" of the thing Timer

var values = Resources["InfoTableFunctions"].CreateInfoTableFromDataShape({dataShapeName: "TimerSettingsDS"});

values.AddRow({

    runAsUser : undefined,

    updateRate : 30000, // new update rate

    enabled: true // activate or deactivate the timer

});

var params = {

  configurationTable: values /* INFOTABLE */,

  persistent: true /* BOOLEAN */,

  tableName: "Settings" /* STRING */

};

Things["thing_name"].SetConfigurationTable(params);

Use RestartThing Service to reset the timer.
