If a node is scheduled by month, the node is automatically run at a specified time on specific days every month.

Precautions

  • To ensure that the descendant instances of a node that is scheduled by month can be run as expected during the time period that is not the scheduled time of the node, the system generates dry-run auto triggered instances for the node. That means the scheduling system does not actually run the node but directly returns a success response when the scheduled time of the node arrives. This way, the descendant nodes of the node can be run as expected and resources are not occupied by the node.
  • You can set the Run Every parameter to Last Day of the Month. This way, the node is run on the last day of every month.

Configuration example

  • Configuration method

    On the DataStudio page, create a node and go to the configuration tab of the node. Click the Properties tab in the right-side navigation pane. In the General section of the Properties tab, configure the scheduling period for the node.

  • Scenario
    • Configuration details
      If the node is scheduled to run on the last day of each month, the scheduling system runs the instances that are generated on the last day of each month. The scheduling system generates dry-run instances for the node on each of the rest days every month and directly returns a success response for the instances. The following figure shows the details about the configurations.
