Scheduling a rule - dillema

    Question

  • Hi. I've once had a question from a customer and doesn't want to lie to him on that topic. There are two ways of scheduling a rule: once every X minutes or on a specific schedule (like Mon - Fri, 8:00-16:00). OK, so how often the rule with launch in the second case and is it possible to combine those two like Mon-Fri, 8:00-16:00, every X minutes ?

  • That would be part of your original rule though?
    I've not tested it, but have created a timed script rule, the schedule for is still there - with the filter at the bottom.

    These guys touch on it from a monitor perspective also, their example is pretty much what you're after, a timed script with a filtered schedule (albeit a monitor):

  • Hi there -

    it's a good point! Boris Yanushpolsky covers this subject here:

    Essentially you create your timed rule, than add a filter to the scheduler.

    Cheers!

  • Hi Nick. Boris' post tells how to create filter with exceptions, I don't see the place to put schedule with time frame like 15 minutes.

  • Also be aware that scheduled rules do not always run at the time specified, see KB974098
