I have scheduled a report with cron config, to run this report on the first monday of each month.
My cron is : 45 3 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 * 1
This was working well until now... but after splunk upgrade (6.6.3 to 7.2.6), it looks like Splunk doesn't recognize this cron definition, and the report is run every day...
Any idea of a solution or workaround ?
@DavidCaputo above cron schedule does not seem to pick 1st monday of each month. Have you verified?
You're right, my cron schedule doesn't work... I created this few months ago and apparently it was working... until this morning. Sorry for the post, I have to find to "good" cron schedule
Plenty of suggestions here - https://superuser.com/questions/428807/run-a-cron-job-on-the-first-monday-of-every-month
However, I'm not sure if Splunk would natively support complex cron schedules. If not, you can make the search one that can be called via the CLI or REST API by an external script if the cron job triggers.
