Configuring Scheduling and Triggers


You can schedule Voyager to run some tasks at specified times or events. This is especially useful in keeping the index updated when new locations are added or the existing content changes.

You can schedule the following tasks:

  • Scan a location
  • Rebuild the index
  • Scan all locations
  • Enable Discovery
  • Disable Discovery
  • Backup the index
  • Clear Log files
  • Clear temporary files

When you schedule a task, you select when it will start with a Trigger. Triggers can be time-based values such as hourly or daily, or can be based on events such as Voyager starting up or Indexing documents. When the conditions for a Trigger are met, the selected task will begin.

You can add new Triggers or configure an existing Trigger.

Adding a New Trigger

To add a new Trigger:

  1. Go to Manage Voyager > Discovery > Schedule

  2. Select a scheduling scheme from the Add Trigger section - you can choose:
      • Time of Day
        Select a Day and time
      • Periodic (a regular time interval)
        Select an interval and choose Hours, Minutes or Seconds from the drop-down menu
      • Advanced timing using Cron 
        Cron scheduling uses the format <Seconds> <Minutes> <Hours> <Day-of-Month> <Month> <Day-of-Week> <Year>. For example, 0 0 0 13 * ? creates a trigger that fires at 0:0:0AM on the 13th day of every month. For more information about creating Cron triggers, see this Tutorial and this page.
      • An Event
        Select an event from the drop-down menu, for example, Voyager Started 

Configuring an Existing Trigger

To configure an existing Trigger:

  1. Go to Manage Voyager > Discovery > Schedule

  2.  Click Manage for the Trigger you want to modify

  3. You can Add a Task or remove an existing Task, or you can Click Remove to delete the Trigger completely
  4. Click Close when you are done modifying the Trigger
