Add Schedule Dialog

As needed, you can create a new schedule to execute jobs.

To add a schedule to your flow, click the drop-down menu in the Flow View page, and select Schedule.


Flow owners can create schedules. Other users must have the appropriate privileges to create schedules for the flow.


By default, when scheduled or API jobs are executed, no validations are performed of any writesettings objects for file-based outputs. Issues with these objects may cause failures during transformation or publishing stages of job execution. Jobs of these types should be tested through the Trifacta Application first. A workspace administrator can disable the skipping of these validations.


For a dataset with parameters, scheduled times are used when resolving date range parameters.


Do not schedule executions through Flow View in a Prod instance when Deployment Manager is enabled.

  • Schedules defined in Flow View are applied to Active and Non-Active releases in Production environments.

  • If the scheduled release is deactivated, the schedule still exists, and the jobs are executed on an flow that is now out-of-date.

  • For more information, see Overview of Deployment Manager.

Scheduling Options

  • Timezone: Select the timezone to apply to the schedule.

  • Frequency:

    • Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly: Run the schedule at the specified moment for the interval.


      For drop-downs showing days of the week or days of the month, you can click multiple values to select them.

    • cron: Set the schedule according to cron syntax.

To add another trigger for the flow's schedule, click Add.

To create the schedule, click Save.

Parameter Overrides

If your flow contains one or more variable parameters, you can apply overrides to any variables. When the scheduled job is executed, the variable value is applied to job at runtime.


In a trigger, displayed parameter values may be inherited from the plan or flow that is being triggered. To ensure that the proper value is used, you should set a specific value for the override in the trigger. This is a known issue.

For each listed variable, you can modify the value that is applied when the schedule is executed.

For more information, see Overview of Parameterization.
