You can schedule your tasks based on simple or advanced time triggers. Time-based scheduling uses a simple trigger or a Cron trigger depending on the way you want your time-based triggered task to be executed, either at a defined time and date or regularly, over a period of time.


Note that if you define several types of triggers for the same rule execution, the first trigger to be verified is the first to be executed.

On the Scheduling view, you can set up different types of triggers that automate the execution of the defined migration rule.

The triggers available include:

  • Time-based triggers (SimpleTrigger):

  • Periodic multi-platform CRON-like triggers (CronTrigger):

The toolbar on top of the trigger table allows you to refresh the table, add or delete triggers, or duplicate a trigger configuration. For further information regarding the trigger management toolsManaging the Scheduling module
