Cron

To configure cron jobs you need at least push access to the repository.

Add a new cron job

  1. To create a new cron job adjust your pipeline config(s) and add the event filter to all steps you would like to run by the cron job:

     steps:
       sync_locales:
         image: weblate_sync
         settings:
           url: example.com
           token:
             from_secret: weblate_token
    +    when:
    +      event: cron
    +      cron: "name of the cron job" # if you only want to execute this step by a specific cron job
    
  2. Create a new cron job in the repository settings:

    cron settings

    The supported schedule syntax can be found at https://pkg.go.dev/github.com/robfig/cron?utm_source=godoc#hdr-CRON_Expression_Format. If you need general understanding of the cron syntax https://crontab.guru/ is a good place to start and experiment.

    Examples: @every 5m, @daily, 0 30 * * * * ...

    Woodpeckers cron syntax starts with seconds instead of minutes as used by most linux cron schedulers.

    Example: "At minute 30 every hour" would be 0 30 * * * * instead of 30 * * * *
