Scheduler

Note: Scheduler is a Server-type plugin hence there must be only 1 server in the project.

Purpose:

Start a process based on a time interval or a time schedule

Supported types:

  • Interval – execute periodically with time intervals in milliseconds (1 second = 1000 milliseconds).
    • Flag “Await” will make the scheduler to wait until previous run is completely finished.
  • Daily – execute daily at specific time

How to use:

  1. Start a new project or open an existing one.
  2. Drag-n-drop Scheduler block to the canvas.
  3. Select mode: Interval or Daily
  4. Specify desired parameters for the selected mode
  5. Link (map) to a target block (e.g. SAP Read table or SQL Client)

In the example below, there are two timers – one is an interval of 60 seconds (60,000 msec.), another is daily at 12AM (00:00).
