Scheduled Function Runs Every 2 Minutes

I created an Epicor function that I want to run once every weeknight. I created a new schedule named “Nightly11” which is scheduled as a Daily schedule and runs M-F.

I submitted the task to run on the new schedule and checked the box for recurring. For some reason, it runs every two minutes until 12:01 AM.

12:01AM is coincidentally when the next recurring schedule runs. I have tried recreating the schedule and restarting task agent but the results are the same. We are on 2022.1.22. I’d like to use the system agent but I guess I could convert it to get called via windows task scheduler… Has anyone seen this behavior before or any advice?

What are the settings in your SYstem Agent Schedule (for this task)

Are you sure you selected the right “schedule” when you scheduled it?

Ensure running absolute latest version of task agent you can. There is a bug with timezoning that can cause this.

@josecgomez Thanks for the quick response! I’ve verified that the function call is on the correct schedule

Unfortunately I’m not able to view the task parameters in classic due to a missing DLL and when I choose them in Kinetic, nothing happens. Maybe that is by design since there are no input parameters to the function.

@jgiese.wci Thanks for the linkI did not see that before posting this. I’ll take a look at that

I really hope they fix that soon it’s annoying.


Agreed but I won’t hold my breath on that one. Does it work in Kinetic?

I believe this was fixed. BUT, any pre-existing tasks have the incorrect URL/DLL info stored.

Try removing the task from the schedule and re-adding it. If you’re not sure what parameters it runs with, check the SysTaskParam table first to grab the settings you need.
