Learn how to schedule scripts or command on a single client or on multiple clients concurrently
Starting with RPort 0.7.0 a centralized cron-like scheduler has been introduced.
Both, the server and the clients must run at least version 0.7.0 of Rport to use the scheduler. Updating all your clients is not necessary as long as you don't want to run scheduled scripts on them.
The scheduler runs only on the RPort server. Jobs are dispatched when due to the clients as regular script or command execution. All security filters are applied.
If a client is disconnected, a job will not be caught up.
For a single client
Create a schedule
Click on the Commands or Scripts tab of a client. Enter the script or command that you want to execute. You can execute it right away to verify it's doing what is it supposed to do. To execute the command or script at a given time, click the gray Schedule button. Using cron syntax, you can then specify the execution interval. Cron syntax is used for Windows, Linux and macOS.
