Users can define a job that can run in regular intervals. The interval can be from one minute to several days or months.


Here is an example that will allow a user to specify job that will be executed every 10 minutes.

Create an application in the Define perspective and then edit the associated event. Using the event's Schedule tab, click the Add Schedule button and enter "EVERY 10 MINUTES" into the When column. User may also want to specify a period that the application will run, enter the Suspend and Resume fields. So if the job(s) will run only during works hours, then suspend at 5 PM and resume at 8 AM. Click OK when done.

Figure 1

Once the application is uploaded CA Workload Automation will then trigger this application every 10 minutes. If 'Suspend' and 'Resume' fields have been entered then it will trigger between those defined hours only, e.g. 8 AM to 5 PM. Users can also edit an existing event from Services perspective -> Event. The event listing will show the 'Next Scheduled Time'.
