Interval Plug-in

Ops Center Automator Service Builder User Guide

Part Number

The Interval Plug-in controls the interval between running steps. The user specifies the wait time for a process as the execution interval, and Ops Center Automator waits for the interval to elapse before running the succeeding steps. By using an interval plug-in, you can run steps at fixed intervals.

The following figure shows how the Interval Plug-in is used.

  • You can only specify literal characters in the input property. You cannot map the value of a service property or reserved property.
