PROBLEM: iCal expression in OIC

About iCal Expression: – For scheduling an OIC integration iCal expression is required, iCal is an advance type to schedule the frequency of any integration.

Example: FREQ=MONTHLY;BYMONTHDAY=6,12,18;BYHOUR=12,14,16,18;BYMINUTE=20;

Above example indicates that the integration will run every month on 6th,12thand 18th days of the month at time 12:20PM,02:20PM,04:20PM and 06:20PM

There are two types through which we can schedule any OIC integration.

  1. Basic schedule: for basic Scheduling there is a minimum frequency limit of 10 mins, below which we cannot create any schedule, therefore use of iCal expression is required.
  2. Scheduling through iCal Expression: we can schedule any integration by the frequency less than 10 mins also.

Prerequisites:

OIC instance access with User having Service Developer role, Service Monitor, Service invoker role.

Solution:

STEP1: Activate a Scheduled OIC integration.

STEP:2 Select ‘Schedule’ from the dropdown and select the pencil icon to edit the schedule as shown below.

STEP:3 click on iCal button and write the expressions in the builder.

Using below expression, Integration will run monthly on days 13th and 14th at time 10:10AM,12:10PM,02:10PM,04:10PM

You can select time interval for the schedule to repeat until when and can set for the particular period from calendar as shown below.

STEP:4 VALIDATE the expression ,save and start the schedule.

Integration is successfully scheduled as per frequency.

Similarly we can schedule integrations  daily, by hour, by minute, by secs.

Example: FREQ=DAILY;BYHOUR=4,6,8,10,12,14;BYMINUTE=0,20,40,50;BYSECOND=30;
