Delay Periodic Report

Issue #

  • How can I delay the Monthly or Weekly periodic reports?

Environment #

  • UNIX – Core Serve

Resolution #

  • Insert these directives in openit.cfg:
    WEEKLY_REPORT_WAIT_DAYS (Available in Patch 917)
    LICENSE_REPORT_WAIT_DAYS
    SERVER_CRONJOB_OFFSET
    number of seconds to be delayed (after midnight)
    e.g.
    SERVER_CRONJOB_OFFSET 23400
    will schedule the cronjob to 6:30am instead of the default 5:30am

Overview #

  • This will delay the generation of yearly, quarterly and monthly reports by the specified number of days, e.g. by setting this to 2, the monthly report will be generated on the 3rd of the month instead of the 1st.
