I am trying to schedule a service to run every 5 minutes inLayer7 (usind its Schedule Service Execution option) but the "Basic" doesn't allow that option. How does it get configured under "Advanced" where the policy is executed every 5 minutes?
Hi Mukti12. You just have to leave all the fields except minutes to have the default value of '*', and set the minutes field to '5'. Please note that manage scheduled tasks feature did not exist before version 9.0, so I assume you are using version 9.0 or higher. If that is not the case, and you want to schedule a task using cron, you could see format of crontab and some examples at http://www.adminschoice.com/crontab-quick-reference.

In the Policy Manager --> Tasks --> Manage Scheduled Tasks --> Add.
For the Execution Time, select "Recurring".
In the "Every" row, change the value from "1" to "5", and use the dropdown menu to change the option from "Second" to "Minute".
Thanks for your response. In our Policy Manager version, i.e. 8.3.0, the options are:
Tasks --> Additional Actions --> Schedule Service Execution
When I select Schedule Service Execution,and select Schedule Recurring Job, it can either be created as a Basic, which is allowed to every Second/Minute/hour/day/month/week. Or as Advanced, under which Second, Minute, Hour, Day, and Month all are set to * (which means "every" I reckon?) and Weekday has "?" as default values. Now to run the service every 5 minutes, what values need to go for all these 6 parameters of "Advanced"?
