Scheduling jobs (cron for builds)

With CircleCI 2.0 you can schedule jobs and workflows. This is similar to a cron job that sets the time (hour day week) when your job will repeat or run automatically.

Scheduling vanilla 2.0:

Scheduling 2.0 workflows:

https://circleci.com/docs/2.0/workflows/#scheduling-a-workflow

NOTE: All times must be scheduled in UTC. Other timezone formats are not supported.

NOTE: Scheduling only supports POSIX crontab syntax. You can read about supported syntax characters on their page here.

  • What does "vanilla" mean here?

  • Hey Petr,

    Vanilla in the context meant a config file that does not contain `workflows`.
