Setting Periodic Schedules

When you are ready to modify your Periodic schedule, you need to specify the following information:

  • The machine(s) for which you want to create or update the periodic schedule(s)
  • The type of batch processing work you want to assign
  • The environments to process
  • When to start and stop the batch process

You can add jobs to the schedule if a Periodic schedule already exists for a particular machine, or you can clear out any pre-existing jobs before setting new jobs in the schedule. You can clear a Periodic schedule without setting any new jobs—see Clearing Periodic Schedules.
