Repeating interval trigger


AutoSync has built-in support for triggering a run profile at a repeating interval. For example, a management agent may not have delta import support, requiring instead to perform a full import every 30 minutes. Repeating interval triggers are not restricted to running only import operations - any run profile type can be triggered.

If you need to run a profile at a particular time (eg every 4 hours starting at midday, or every Sunday at 4am), use the scheduled interval trigger instead.


This trigger is available to use on any MA. From the triggers page, select Add trigger... and the repeating interval trigger will be available from the drop down list. Each management agent can have an unlimited number of repeating interval triggers.


Run profile

The run profile to execute

Trigger the run profile every

The amount of time which must pass before the run profile is triggered. Note that is the amount of time since the management agent's executor was started. If this value is set to every 1 hour, then the first execution would take place one hour from when the service started

Run profile must be run exclusively

If this box is checked, then when this profile is triggered, AutoSync prevents any new jobs from starting, it waits for all existing jobs to finish, runs the job, and then resumes normal operations

Note, that while you can specify a multi-step run profile, it is always best practice to specify single-step run profiles, and let AutoSync determine what follow up actions are required.
