Using the Scheduler Assistant Cron Helper

The Cron Helper is the second tab within Scheduler Assistant.  

The software utility Cron is a time-based job scheduler. Users can set up searches to run in Splunk periodically at fixed dates, times, or intervals. Each digit in the expression denotes a specific value: minute, hour, day, month, and weekday. 

Use the “SYNTAX” key in the lower left of the screen to determine what values to enter into the Cron expression. 

Click on any one of the “EXAMPLES” to see how it would translate into a Cron expression.
