Scheduling pipeline tasks

Define how frequently you want to run your pipeline task.

Note that schedule updates that are made within three minutes prior to the scheduled execution time immediately impact the execution. For this reason, avoid making schedule changes when an execution is about to be triggered.

Before you begin

  • You must have the Execute permission on the workspace where the task is located to configure the Schedule steps when creating or editing a task.
  • If parallel run is not allowed for the task, for an optimized design you should leave at least a one minute margin between the end of the first run and the beginning of the next one.

About this task

You can define multiple time triggers for the same Pipeline task.

You can have 15 triggers including Once, Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Cron types for each task.

Triggers must be separated by at least five minutes.

Information noteNote: When you edit the schedule of a single-triggered task in the UI, this task is converted to multi-triggered. Once done, you need to use GET /executables/tasks/{taskId}/schedule endpoint to get task schedule details.

    To start the task manually without a trigger, go to the task details page and click Run now.
