## Scheduled save search in every 30 minutes past 2 mins

Engager

How to run a saved search for every 2 minute in 30 minutes interval (i.e) it should run at 2.02, 2.32, 3.02, 3.32. I tried this 2/30 * * * *, but it is showing as invalid format

If you are asking about a cron schedule, you can use this:
`2,32 * * * *`

Which means, run 2 AND 32 minutes past every hour, (every day of the month, every month, every day of the week)

To elaborate further, if you only wanted this to run during business hours, you could use
`2,32 9-17 * * *`
Which then says 2 & 32 minutes past every hour between 09 - 17

The `/` notation allows you to set repeats. If you wanted something to run every 17 (!?) minutes every 9 hours, it would be:
`*/17 */9 * * *`

@rekakumaresan You were close. Comma, not slash. The following cron job will run on minutes 2 and 32 every hour, like in the example you gave.
`2,32 * * * *`

While it can't solve 100% of scenarios, for a majority of cron expression testing, try sites like crontab.guru:
