How to schedule polling time in SNOW TA?


Hello everyone, I am new with SNOW TA and I am trying to find how can I schedule polling time. I have the collection interval set to poll once a day, but I would like to schedule it to run some time at night.

Create your cron expression using Crontab guru. There are loads of examples already present to help you understand how it works. Or if you can just tell us as to how frequent do you want the input to run, we can help you make a cron expression.

@Juan_Leon Have you tried to set a cron expression in field "collection interval"? May do it directly in the inputs.conf in the backend.
