Guidelines for Entering Time Values for Service Schedules

 

When you enter time schedules, you can use the values in the following list. See Setting the Time Schedule (SRC CLI) for a description of the options.

Note

Dates in the to statements apply only to services that have an authorization plug-in configured. If an authorization plug-in is not configured for the service associated with the schedule, the entries in the to statements are ignored.

  • *—Asterisks are interpreted as follows:

    • Minutes and hours:

      • 0 if used in the from or to statements of a scheduled event

      • First or last if used in the statements of a schedule exclusion

    • Time zones—Local SAE time zone

    • All other options—First through last

    • For options in the to statements, * for the end time is equivalent to “deny service activation after this start date.”

    • For dates in the from statements, * is equivalent to “deny service activation before this end date.”

  • Range of numbers separated by a hyphen. The range is inclusive; for example, 1-5 for the hour specifies hours 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

  • List of numbers or ranges separated by commas. For example, 1,2,5,9 or 0-4,8-12.

  • Skip values in ranges:

    • To skip a number’s value through the range, follow a range with /<number>. For example, 0-23/2 used in the hour option specifies that the event occurs every other hour.

    • Skip values with *. If you want to specify every two hours, use */2.

      Note
      • In general, if you set both a day-of-month and a day-of-week, then the service scheduler uses the day-of-month configuration. However, using the weekly recurrence feature, if you set both a day-of-month and a day-of-week, then the service scheduler uses the day-of-week configuration.

      • When the day-of-week is configured and the weekly-recur-freq is set to a value greater than 1, then the service scheduler performs the scheduled service changes based on the weekly-recur-freq configuration, whereas if the weekly-recur-freq is set to 0 or 1, then the service scheduler performs the scheduled service changes based on the day-of-week configuration.
