Configuring Scheduler Settings

Configuring Scheduler Settings

Configure the Schedule tab of the scheduler to set run options, schedule options, start options, and end options for the schedule.
The following table describes the settings on the Schedule tab:
Scheduler Options
Description
Run Options:
Run On Integration Service Initialization/Run On Demand/Run Continuously
Indicates the workflow schedule type.
If you select Run On Integration Service Initialization, the Integration Service runs the workflow as soon as the service is initialized. The Integration Service then starts the next run of the workflow according to settings in Schedule Options.
If you select Run On Demand, the Integration Service runs the workflow when you start the workflow manually.
If you select Run Continuously, the Integration Service runs the workflow as soon as the service initializes. The Integration Service then starts the next run of the workflow as soon as it finishes the previous run. If you edit a workflow that is set to run continuously, you must stop or unschedule the workflow, save the workflow, and then restart or reschedule the workflow.
Schedule Options:
Run Once/Run Every/Customized Repeat
Required if you select Run On Integration Service Initialization, or if you do not choose any setting in Run Options.
If you select Run Once, the Integration Service runs the workflow once, as scheduled in the scheduler.
If you select Run Every, the Integration Service runs the workflow at regular intervals, as configured.
If you select Customized Repeat, the Integration Service runs the workflow on the dates and times specified in the Repeat dialog box.
When you select Customized Repeat, click Edit to open the Repeat dialog box. The Repeat dialog box lets you schedule specific dates and times for the workflow run. The selected scheduler appears at the bottom of the page.
Start Options: Start Date/Start Time
Start Date indicates the date on which the Integration Service begins the workflow schedule.
Start Time indicates the time at which the Integration Service begins the workflow schedule.
End Options: End On/End After/Forever
Required if the workflow schedule is Run Every or Customized Repeat.
If you select End On, the Integration Service stops scheduling the workflow in the selected date.
If you select End After, the Integration Service stops scheduling the workflow after the set number of workflow runs.
If you select Forever, the Integration Service schedules the workflow as long as the workflow does not fail.
