The Scheduled trigger is the perfect way to automatically trigger a rule at specific times.

There are a number of scheduling options to choose from or you can define your own custom schedule using a Cron Expression.

Scheduled rules can be used for any number of regular maintenance, escalation or one off "fix it" jobs.

Scheduled trigger configuration

Below you will find a detailed description of each parameter of the basic configuration of the trigger.

Run as* 

Select the user that will be used to execute the rule.

Schedule / Interval* 

Define the exact time and interval when you want to trigger the rule. The time/day options differ depending on the selected schedule.


The rule will be executed every day. The specific time can be set in the Interval* parameter (e.g. once per day at 1:00 am).

Days per Week

The rule will be executed on certain day(s) per week. The day(s) and specific times can be set in Interval* parameter (e.g. every Monday at 7 AM).
