CRON Scheduling in UiPath Orches


I want to schedule the bot from 6 AM to 3 PM ET timings in UiPath Orchestrator.
Bot should run once in every hour.
Any suggestions ?

I’m using below expression but it is not working as expected -
0 0 6-15 ? * MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI *


So you want to run hourly between these timings?

and did you select the timezone as well?

if so then the above expression should be working …can you tell what is wrong or not working


Hi @prerna.gupta

Use the below expression. It may help you

0 0 6-14 ? * MON-FRI *

This expression specifies that the trigger should run every minute between 6 AM and 2:59 PM (14:59) from Monday to Friday.

Hope it helps!!

Yes need to run every hour.
I have selected time zone as - UTC (Coordinated Universal time).
It starts before expected time


You wanted ET so please select the timezone accordingly…


Exp is correct just i need to recheck the time zone ? Is it ?


Yes exactly…expression is perfect…just change timezone as you need


To schedule the bot to run once every hour from 6 AM to 3 PM ET, you can use the following cron expression in UiPath Orchestrator:

0 0 6-14 ? * MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI *

Here’s an explanation of the cron expression:

  • 0 specifies the exact minute when the bot should start (in this case, the start of each hour).
  • 0 specifies the exact hour when the bot should start.
  • 6-14 specifies the range of hours from 6 AM to 2 PM (3 PM ET is equivalent to 2 PM ET).
  • ? is used as a placeholder for the day of the month.
  • * indicates that the bot can run on any day of the month.
  • MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI specifies the days of the week (Monday to Friday) when the bot should run.

By using this expression, the bot will run once at the top of each hour from 6 AM to 2 PM ET, on weekdays (Monday to Friday).

Seems this is entirely similar as below
0 0 6-14/1 ? * MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI *
where /1 is used for every hour ?

0 0 6-14/1 ? * MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI *

Yes correct. Still Facing the same challenge if you use this one? Explain further or show the screenshots if not sensitive.
