    Default Need an idea about scheduler

    hi ,

    I have worked in pentaho for the reports [ designed with BIRT ]
    i am feeling successful over there

    I have seen scheduled reports in pentaho
    here i am capable of scheduling reports this with repeated counts
    and on repeated intervals but i am not able to give any dynamic inputs to the scheduled report
    for eg. the export type of the report

    and can i place a start time for the scheduler ?
    Now the proccess was getting activated at the moment
    of starting the schedule but can i start the process after some pre defined time

    EG . If the user is giving the values and give the detail that "start this process at this time eg 12/11/2005 12:00 AM "

    If possible give me the procedure to do that ..


    Any way thanks for helping me in creating a neat and colour full report

    regards,
    siva

    Hi Siva,

    Thank you for evaluating the Pentaho BI Platform.

    Yes, it is possible to schedule a task in a variety of ways. The Scheduler supports two different types of triggers. A "simple" trigger which allows you to set a repetition number and interval and a "cron" Trigger that allows fine grain tuning of Schedule firing. This trigger gives you the ability to scheule the trigger to start whenever you want and to repeat it based on years months, days, hours, minutes etc.

    There is a sample of a cron trigger in the test solution in test\\scheduler\\SchedulerTest_new_cron_job.action.xml in test-solution You can also find documentation for building the cron string in the Building Pentaho Solutions guide in the Scheduler chapter.

    I hope this helps. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further problems.

    reguards,

    Bill

    Hi Siva,

    I'm sorry but the forum can't take XML embedded directly. Please send it as an attachment and I will try to do a little debugging on it.

    Thanks,

    Bill
