scheduling report error

Champion

Hi,

I'm trying to schedule a report with the following cron config:

2-59/5 * * * *

When I try to save this, the "Edit Schedule" box says that I have an "Invalid cron". I know that this cron is valid. Any suggestions?

The cron is not valid. perhaps you mean:

2-59/5 * * * *

Just ensure spacing is correct. 2(no space)-(no space)59(no space)/(no space)5(1 space)(1 space)(1 space)(1 space)

Yes, it's correct. Going to open a ticket on it...

Turned out to be a bug - you can enter the cron entry via searches-reports and it will work.

a212830 can you elaborate? I'm having the same issue. When you say you can enter the cron entry via searches-reports, what do you mean?
