A Process Schedule object allows you to execute existing Business Processes at specific times or at regular intervals.
You can view all Process Schedules that are active on a server in the Admin Console | Schedules view. This view allows you to view when all Process Schedules will run on a calendar (either by year, month, week, or day). It also allows you to view a list of all Business Processes affected by Process Schedules in the Process view. You cannot edit Process Schedules in this view.
You could create a Process Schedule to run a Business Process at 9 a.m. on Monday and Friday or a Process Schedule to run a Business Process every eight hours.
You can also create a Process Schedule to run a Business Process only once.
Process Schedules allow the Integration Engine to run Business Processes independent of other occurrences. Otherwise, it is reliant on something else happening (such as receiving a file, or a rule in a Ruleset) to trigger a Business Process.
To make changes to a Process Schedule that is running, you must undeploy the Project that houses it.
