Feature request: Schedule script for one-off tasks


Recommended Posts

It would be good to be able to set a schedule when executing a script from a device. For example, if I wanted to schedule a script to run at night. This script would be scheduled on a per device basis. An example would be scheduling a reboot script for a server in the middle of the night. I don't want to have to create tasks to run these. Instead, I would go to the device to run a script the same way I would run a script now, but with an option to schedule this script for a later time and date.

While 8.4 does offer some automation, it's really not a good way to schedule scripts (unless I am missing something)

I am looking for a way to schedule a script at a later time. For example, if I wanted to reboot a server at 2am. Or I want to run a disk check, but not during work hours, so I schedule it for 4am. Ā 

All that's needed is to add a scheduler instead of just a "run now" option.

I hope this is still something that is considered.
