The Schedules page allows you to run workspaces at specific times in the future on a repeating or non-repeating basis.

A request to run a workspace at a scheduled time is called a task. Each entry in the Schedules table represents a scheduled task. When a task is completed, its entry is removed from the table when the page is refreshed.

From the Schedules page, you can:

The columns displayed in the Schedules table are:

Name: The user-defined name of the task

Category: The user-defined name of the general category or group to which the task belongs

Start Time: The time at which the task is scheduled to start, using the following syntax:

year-month-day hour:minute:second

End Time: The time at which the task is to end. The time displays as N/A if the task does not end, or using the following syntax:

year-month-day hour:minute:second

Recurrence: The frequency of the task. Recurrence displays as, Never (if the task occurs only once), a Cron expression, or the recurrence interval, whichever is specified.

Note: cron expressions display according to the time zone of the FME Server that is running the task. All other times display in your local time zone.

Workspace: The workspace that runs the request.

Status: The current status of the task.

  • Enabled (green checkmark): it will run at the next scheduled time.
  • Disabled (red circle with x): the task has been paused.

Owner: The user who created the schedule owns it and has full permissions on it.

You can share an item if you own it, or if you are a user with Manage Security permissions, such as an administrator.
