# Event Store Cloud Jobs

The Event Store Cloud runs scheduled jobs on the user's behalf. All of these jobs consist of a human-readable description and a schedule.

Currently, the following jobs are supported:

# Job Schedules

The schedule format used by the Event Store Cloud CLI tool and API is a simplified subset of cron (opens new window), in the future we may support more cron features.

The supported subset is:

  • for the first field, minute:
    • a wildcard *
    • a number between 0 and 59 (inclusive).
    • a rate, written as a wildcard divided by a number. E.g: */15
  • For the second field, hour:
    • a wildcard *
    • a number must be between 0 and 23 (inclusive)
    • a rate, written as a wildcard divided by a number. E.g: */1
  • for the third field, day of month:
    • a wildcard *
  • for the fourth field, month:
    • a wildcard *
  • for the fifth field, day of the week:
    • a wildcard *
    • a number between 0 and 7 (inclusive), Sunday to Saturday
 ┌───────────── Minute: wildcard, number (0 - 59), rate
 │ ┌─────────── Hour: wildcard, number (0 - 23), rate
 │ │ ┌───────── Day of the month: wildcard
 │ │ │ ┌─────── Month: wildcard
 │ │ │ │ ┌───── Day of the week: wildcard, number (0 - 7)

Scheduled backups have a minimum frequency of 60 minutes. Currently, it is not possible to schedule backups more frequently.

# Examples:

0 */1 * * * runs a job once an hour, at minute 00.

0 12 * * 1 runs a job at 12:00 PM on Monday.

30 13 * * 0 runs a job at 13:30 PM on Sunday.
