CRON-like scenario triggers

simonkth Registered Posts: 1 ✭✭✭


I have a scenario with a trigger every 5 minutes:Screenshot from 2021-08-12 19-02-08.png

As you can see I have no control over the initial timestamp, so instead of running roughly at 18:55:00 it ran at 18:56:51.

What would be the easiest way to have a CRON-like trigger, like 5 * * * * would do?

    Hi @simonkth

    If you are looking for some more control over when it executes. I would recommend using a python based trigger for the scenario to help solve this problem.

    Here is some helpful documentation:

    Perhaps the python based trigger can calculate the times it is suppose to run for that day and execute the scenario when it determines the current time is that 5 minute time mark.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi @simonkth

    If you do pursue a python custom trigger as @adamnieto
    suggests, here are a few tips on python triggers.

    Alternatively, you can specify the exact time starting with a granularity of 1 hour. So to have a scenario triggered exactly every 5 min at 0'clock, 5, 10, ... you can create 12 1-hour triggers
