Understanding Scheduled Job

  • Dark
    Light

Users can schedule a job to run a Flow, send a command, run a Report, synchronize Active Directory, or perform other tasks via a Scheduled Job, with each job running at different intervals. By using advanced scheduling options, a job schedule may be set for almost any frequency. Once a Scheduled Job is added, the job's details may be viewed by selecting the job in the Folder Data panel.


Accessing Scheduled Jobs

Navigate to the System > Jobs And Events > Scheduled Jobs in the Designer Studio. On the Scheduled Jobs page, any options listed on the Global Action Bar can be used to create the specified Scheduled Job Type. Each Scheduled Job has unique settings that help specify what the job does.


Scheduled Job Types

Schedule Configuration: Calendar

Each job type has a Calendar option under the Schedule Configuration category that provides start time options. When an option is selected, each option gives a new selection of choices that gives the user the ability to schedule a job to run at the desired interval.
