I want help writing a Cron Expression for a scheduled alert to start my search query at 2:45 AM for every 10 mins till 5:55 AM.

My Cron would run like first at 2:45,2:55,3:05,3:15.....5:55.

Can anyone please help me?

Hi,

As far as I know you can't achieve this with single cron but you can schedule same search twice with 2 different cron.

First cron 45-59/10 2 * * *, this cron executes at 02:45 and 02:55

Second cron 5-59/10 3-5 * * * , this cron executes from 03:05, 03:15 to 05:55
