Yes you can trigger a Schedule via command line and you can use Blue Prism to send command line commands.

See the Blue Prism Help topic under Advanced Topics -> Command Line Options.

As an alternative you could program your own scheduling logic into Blue Prism processes by using command line to start processes on your resources at certain times. You could have a master process that starts processes on all of your resources dependent on logic in the master process.

Hello,

Where can I find "Blue Prism Help topic under Advanced Topics -> Command Line Options ". I try to find on portal but couldn't. Is it on some guides?

Hi Nabin,

Open for example a Calc stage -> click on the question mark button on the top right corner of the window -> on the left hand side type command line.

Is it possible to put some timeout to start the schedule. like now if I run /startschedule /schedule <schedule name> it starts right after but I want to put some time gap like 5 minutes or something is it possible?

It would be good to put the command in a bat file or a script file or powershell then you can give the delay or wait in the file itself before the line of code for starting the schedule.
If it is from a Blue Prism process then you can use the Sleep action of Utility General VBO.

Yeah,I am running like that (By keeping command on bat file and running the bat file from BP process) but I mean when I run bat file it start the schedule right after.
like, if I run a bat file at 23 Nov 2018 09:45:00 it runs like,
"Schedule <Schedule name> set to run at 23 Nov 2018 09:45:06"
And if I put timeout before the code it execute the code after some time but I want code to run at same time but schedule to start after some time , if possible.

like if I run a bat file at 09:45:30 it should run schedule like,
"Schedule <Schedule name> set to run at 23 Nov 2018 09:50:30"
