How do I schedule a search to run every Friday morning at 11 am until Sunday morning at 9 am using a cron job?

The third position is day of the week, with 0 = Sunday.

So if you want to run something every Friday it would be 5.

The second position is hour.

* 11 5 * *

Will run every Friday at 11.

Schedule the search time frame to look back to Sunday at 9, eariest=-122h@m latest=now.

if it is this: minute | hour | Day of month | Month| Day of week
then it should be
full hour | 11 hours | any day of the month | any month | 5 day of the week (0=Sunday)

  • 11 * * 5

so, this post is swallowing some characters when being published, as it actually had 5 positions in the cron .
Let's try again (this time correct):

Zero eleven asterix asterix five

0 11 * * 5
