Cron Formatting

Cron strings are formatted in crontab format. This is a space-separated list of numbers for when the schedule will execute:

Each value may be a number, a fraction, or an asterisk * .

For example:

A cron string of 0 0 * * * will execute at midnight every day.
A cron string of */5 * * * * will execute every 5 minutes.

Please refer to a full reference on cron formatting here.


Bigeye will not execute a schedule more frequently than every 5 minutes.


Bigeye also does not support cron predefined values such as @weekly.
