Scheduling Operations

CCKM allows you to periodically refresh keys in the background. To refresh keys, you need to create schedule configuration. A schedule configuration defines when to run a refresh job. You can use either basic format or cron format to specify the time when the refresh job will run.

Specify basic format in the following order:

[Repeats, at]

Where,

  • Repeats: frequency of the scheduler. Possible values are daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly.

  • at: specific time at which the refresh operation will be performed. Possible value lies between 12:00-11:00 AM/PM UTC.

Specify cron format in the following order:

"* * * * *"

These five values indicate when the job should be executed. These values are mandatory and must be specified in order of minute, hour, day of month, month, and day of week.

The following table lists the accepted values:

FieldAllowed valuesAllowed special characters
Minute0-59* / , -
Hour0-23* / , -
Day of month1-31* / , - ?
Month1-12 or JAN-DEC* / , -
