Scheduler

2 new options in scheduler has been added.

Interval scheduler

The interval scheduler allow you to schedule the agents after fixed interval time. For example, if you schedule your agent using 15 minutes interval at 9:01am your time

Using the interval scheduler it will run at

9:16
9:31
9:46
etc...

While using the minutes scheduler it will run at

9:15
9:30
9:45
etc

CRON scheduler

You can use the CRON scheduler to schedule agents using CRON expression. See here to learn more about CRON expression.

S3, Dropbox and SFTP Plugin update

We’ve updated the S3, Dropbox and SFTP integration to upload multiple collection files (when available) and logs file as well if enabled in the plugin configuration.

You may edit your plugins to add or enable these features.

Note : You must use dynamic parameter {{name}} in S3 path or Dropbox path to generate dynamic file names when Agenty needs to upload multiple files using collections or logs enabled. Because, if you use the static name - for example “output.csv” - The plugin will throw error on 2nd upload (or logs upload) because one file already uploaded with the same name.
