First search of a scheduled report at fix time


Hi Team,

I have the following requirement -

I have a report that needs to be scheduled to be run every 10 minutes. The catch is, I want the first search of the day to be run at 00:10AM and after that it should run every 10 minutes.

I am implementing the report in 'Search and reporting' app.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @shaquibk ,

you can create your report in Settings > Searches, Reports, and Alerts > New Report.
Once you set all the details of your report (i.e. report name, search, earliest and latest time, ...) you can save it and the click on Edit > Edit Schedule > check Enable.
Here you can schedule your report at a fixed frequency. In the Schedule dropdown, select "Run on Cron Schedule" and then you can explicitly insert a cron expression. If you need you report to run every 10 minutes, you can type "*/10 * * * *" (this will execute the report every 10 minutes every day).

Hope this will help
