Configuring a Scheduler—Quick Configuration

You can use J-Web Quick Configuration to quickly configure a schedule for the security policies.

To configure a scheduler in the J-Web user interface:

  1. Select Configure>Security>Policy Elements>Scheduler.
  2. Select one of the following options:
    • Add–To create a new scheduler, click Add. The Add new scheduler dialog box appears.
    • Edit–To edit an existing configuration, select the scheduler that you want to change and click Edit. The Edit scheduler dialog box appears.
    • Delete–To delete an existing scheduler, select it and click Delete. (If you select this option, you can skip the remaining steps in this section.)
  3. In the Scheduler Name field, enter a name for the scheduler.
  4. In the Date of start and Date of stop fields, use the calendar pick tool to specify the date range for the scheduler. Then, specify the exact start and stop times using the HH.MM fields.
  5. If you want the scheduler to run at regular, recurring intervals, select the Daily tab or any of the day-of-the-week tabs.

    Within the specified tab, you can fine-tune when the scheduler runs by choosing one of the following options from the Daily Options drop-down list:

    • all-day—Select this option to run the scheduler throughout the specified day of the week. (This option is not available for the Daily tab.)
    • exclude—Select this option to configure the scheduler not to run on the specified day of the week. (This option is not available for the Daily tab.)
    • period—Select this option to configure the scheduler to run only between the specified start and stop time periods. Specify the start and stop times in hh, mm, ss (hour, minute, second) format.
    • none—Select this option to keep the scheduler “as is” with no further configuration options.
  6. Select one of the following options:
    • OK–To apply the configuration and return to the main Configuration page, click OK.
    • Cancel–To cancel your entries and return to the main page, click Cancel.
