WAP/SMA - Scheduled Task Frequency - Add Hours and Minutes options
At present it only seems possible to schedule 'one time' or 'daily' for the frequency for runbooks.
Proposal : Add options for hours and minutes
Justifcation : (1) Many of our scripts need to run on a more frequent basis, such as scanning ftp file drop locations for new files and processing them accordingly. The limitation of this at the moment restricts our ability to use these.
(2) Dependancy on Orchestrator restricts full migration to SMA, adds additional development time and testing.
Current workaround : Make an Orchestrator runbook with a timer which calls the SMA runbook(s).
Just to confirm, you are looking for two additional frequencies: hour and minute. Our team can look into this.
Yes – you can have a monitor/long running runbook that triggers other runbooks on a timer as a workaround for the moment.
Is there any update on this? :)
Comment below indicates hours has been added though I do not see this?

Any update on the schedules frequency.
Well now you've added hours, but not minutes. Please add minutes to. I have jobs I want running every 15 minutes and I don't want to have to create 4 schedules. I have ones I run every 5 minutes and I'm forced to create 12 schedules.
I fully back this statement. I am having to use the orchestrator scheduling for sma runbooks. It would be a very welcomed edition.

Yes, hours and minutes would be a very nice to have in the product.
