Is it possible to schedule a Batch Apex job hourly?

Hi,

 

I've seen this example that shows how to leverage the Scheduling API to set jobs to run on an hourly basis. But can I set up a Batch Apex job to run hourly as well? If so, can someone guide me through the process? I already know how to write and set up Batch Apex jobs that run daily, but need help getting them to run hourly.

 

Thanks in advance.

You can.  All you need to do is have your schedulable class instantiate and execute the batch apex.

Thanks for the advice :smileyhappy: I made the necessary changes to my Batch Class (now it implements the Schedulable interface w/ its execute method) and then scheduled it via the System Log. The batch job has been running for a few hours now and it's working great!

Hi,

 

Is there any other way I can schedule this scheduler class to run Batch Apex on hourly base except System log or Anonymous block ?

 

Thanks,
