ID 238429

This functionality requires Edit settings permissions and is only available when the digest is enabled.

To configure the schedule of Backup Digest delivery:

  1. In the application web interface window, select the SettingsGeneralBackup section.
  2. Select the Digest tab.
  3. In the Schedule drop-down list, select one of the options and do the following to configure the schedule:
    • Every few hours.
      1. The Every field appears; in that field, specify how frequently you want the digest to be sent, in hours. Possible values are 1 through 23.

        If the digest could not be sent out completely before the next scheduled time because of the large number of users, the next digest is skipped.

      2. In the From field, specify the starting date for sending out the digest.
    • Daily.
    • Weekly.

      The Day of week field appears; in that field, specify the day of the week when you want the digest to be sent. The default value is Mon.

    • Monthly.

      The Day of month field appears; in that field, specify the day of the month when you want the digest to be sent. Possible values are 1 through 31. Default value: 1.

      If the specified value exceeds the number of days in a given month, the Backup Digest is not created in that month. For example, if you specify 31, the digest will not be sent in 30-day months.

      By default, the digest is sent daily.

  4. In the At field, select the time when you want to start the mailing. Possible values are 00:00 to 23:59. The default value is 01:00.

    The mailing time is local time of the Control node.

    For example, if the specified values are Weekly, Mon, and 15:00, the Backup Digest is sent every Monday at 15:00.

  5. Click Save.

The digest schedule is configured. The first mailing of the Backup Digest will take place at the configured time.
