As of Germain APM v8.6.11, all Automation features (Click, Http action, Local Program, Script, Sql, Ssh and Wmi) now have a “schedule” field (instead of old "repeatSeconds"), both on the Deployment Wizards and on the Configuration dashboards, so that you can execute an Action or Task on a schedule or at a specific time of day.

Scheduling can be applied via GUI or CRON expression(advanced)

Enabling schedule via GUI

1. Enable “Run on schedule” option

This will reveal the scheduler. In the basic option, you can configure it to run every minute, hourly, daily or weekly or have it configured to run at specific times.

CRON expression

If you prefer not to use the GUI, you can choose to use advanced option. Here you can write any valid CRON expression.

Examples of CRON expressions
