Add a new line by using the plus-icon in the header


Avoid to run cronjobs using a user with the developer role due to the following reasons:

  • Having a developer role does not bring any benefit in recalculating data nodes.
  • Behind the scene, pool users are create for running the cronjobs and they will use up the number of developer roles allowed by the license.

Using stored procedure

Use xisp0066 for creating a cron job record in table t1750.

DECLARE @prid int
DECLARE @retval_out int

EXECUTE @RC = [dbo].[xisp0066] 
   @prid OUTPUT
  ,1                -- source type: data node
  ,-1,-1            -- day month
  ,23,00,-1         -- hh mm ss
  ,-1               -- interval (msec)
  ,@retval_out OUTPUT



In case of using TIS with SP-EXPERT the configured user must have the same passwords in TIS and SPX. Generally the authentication is done with SPX. For the cron job execution, the TIS password is used to authenticate with SPX. To do so, reset the password in the User-Management, see TIS Admin, and then set it to the identical password in SPX.

(warning) Starting from SPX 19.3 the password must be entered in the cron jobs portlet.

(warning) Multiple Instances of TIService are not supported, see also Load Balancing.
