Create a time triggered or feed triggered job in Cortex XSOAR to run a playbook.

Time triggered jobs run at predetermined times. You can schedule the job to run at a recurring time or one time at a specific date and time. For an example, see Add Indicators to SIEM Using a Time Triggered Job.


To view a human readable description of a cron schedule for an existing job, change the table settings by clicking the Settings icon and selecting Job Schedule from the available columns.

  1. Select JobsNew Job.

  2. Select Time triggered.

  3. If you want the job to repeat at regular intervals, select the Recurring checkbox and choose the desired interval.

    You can choose to run the job every X number of days, on specific days of the week, at a specific time and also choose a start date and an expiration date. You have the option to configure the recurring job using a cron expression. To do so, after selecting the Recurring checkbox, click Switch to Cron view and enter the expression. For assistance in defining the cron expression, click Show cron examples after switching to cron view.

  4. If you do not want to the job to repeat, Select date and time the job should run.

  5. Add or create any relevant tags to use as search parameter in the system.

  6. In the Basic information section, add the required Time Triggered Job Parameters.

  7. Enter any relevant custom fields parameters.

    All fields that have the Add to all incident types checkbox selected in incident and indicator fields, appear.

  8. In the Queue Handling section, select whether to notify the owner of the job if the job is triggered while a previous run of the job is active.


    Notifications are only sent if a mail sender integration is configured. To test your mail integration, from the CLI, run !send-mail subject=test body=test

  9. Select an option to use if the job is triggered while a previous run of the job is active:

    • Don’t trigger a new job run.

    • Cancel the previous job run and trigger a new job run.

    • Trigger a new job run and execute concurrently with the previous run.

  10. Create new job.
