You can schedule pipelines that do not contain a trigger step. Your scheduled pipeline will run at the intervals you choose.
Note: When you are adding a new pipeline, you can set up your schedule after you've added your first step, completed the required fields, and the pipeline is valid.
To schedule a pipeline:
- Select Schedule pipeline from within the pipeline or from the three dot menu on the My pipelines page.
- Select hour, day, week, month or year from the drop-down and specify the units.
Note: Scheduled time is based on the timezone you select. Your pipeline will run within a few minutes of the scheduled time.
- Click the CRON tab to enter your schedule in the CRON format for more flexibility. For more information about the CRON format see About CRON.
- Click Schedule to save your entries.
Note: You can turn off without clearing your schedule.
Pipelines and concurrency
What if a pipeline is still running when the schedule calls it to run again? Will you have two versions of the same pipeline running? If a pipeline schedule occurs while the pipeline is still running both tasks will be executed in parallel - this means that the first one will not stop running.
