Setting the Automation Schedule

  • Last updated on

When you set the Automation schedule, you indicate when the daily, weekly, and monthly automated tasks occur. Then, when you create an Automation policy, you indicate whether the policy uses the daily, weekly, or monthly automation schedule in the applicable execution schedule.

For example, in the execution schedule, you set the daily automation schedule to occur every day at 3 a.m. Then, when you go to Configuration > Policies > Automation to create an Automation policy, on the Settings tab, you can indicate that the automated task in the policy run on the daily automated schedule.

Setting the Daily Automation

Daily automation schedules can be set to run once a day, or by indicating the frequency, in hours, the schedule should run.

When you select a recurrence pattern that occurs more than once a day (i.e. every 2 hours) you can also determine the last run. For example, you may want to run tasks every 2 hours starting at 1 a.m. but have the last run time begin at 5 a.m., to help ensure that the automated tasks have completed before the start of the work day.

  1. In the Automation Details area, click the link for the daily automated schedule.
    By default, daily automated tasks are set to run once a day at 7 a.m.

  2. In the Start Time box, enter the time when the daily automation begins running.
    You can also click the clock icon to select from a list of start times.
  3. From the Run Daily list, select the frequency in which the automated task runs on a daily basis.
  4. If you selected something other than Once a day from the Run daily list, select when the last run time for the day. In the Last run time box, enter the time when the last occurrence of the daily automation begins.
    You can also click the clock icon to select from a list of last run times.
  5. Click Save.

Setting the Weekly Automation Schedule

Using a weekly automation schedule, you can indicate on which days of the week an automated task runs. You can have the schedule run more than once a week. For example, you can choose to have the schedule run twice a week by indicating that it runs on Tuesdays and Fridays.

  1. In the Automation Schedules area, click the link for the weekly automated schedule.
  2. In the Start Time box, enter the time when the weekly automation begins running.
    You can also click the clock icon to select from a list of start times.
  3. Select the check box beside each day of the week that you want the weekly automation schedule to run.
  4. Click Save.

Setting the Monthly Automation Schedule

Monthly automation schedules allow you to determine a day of the month that the automated task runs, i.e. the first, 5th, or last day of the month. Or, you can select a day and week for the task to run, i.e. the second Tuesday of the month.

  1. In the Automation Schedules area, click the link for the monthly automated schedule.
  2. In the Start Time box, enter the time when the monthly automation begins running.
    You can also click the clock icon to select from a list of start times.
  3. To select a day of the month when the automated task runs, in the Run every month on area, select the top button, and then select a day of the month from the list.
  4. To select a day and week for the task to run, in the Run every month on area, select the bottom button, and then select a week (first, second, third, etc.) and day.
  5. Click Save.
