Schedule expression is invalid (copied from docs)

Getting the errror Schedule expression is invalid when trying to deploy a new cron job.

Here’s the job:

    type: task
      code: src/tasks/REALTIME_PRICES/handler.ts
    schedule: cron(0/5 14-21 ? MON-FRI )

It’s supposed to run every 5 minutes from 9am to 4pm (EST) Monday through Friday.

Technically I need it to be 9:30 am to 4pm. But that won’t fix the error :sweat_smile:

I copied the schedule directly from the docs where it says:

cron(0/5 8-17 ? MON-FRI ) Invoke task every 5 minutes Mon-Fri between 8:00am and 5:55pm (UTC)

Seems like this is also invalid?

I did try removing the space at the end but that didn’t fix it.

Could anyone update the docs, and also please send the correct way to format a cronjob running every 5 minutes 09:30 to 14:00 Monday to Friday?

Found the answer here:

It’s missing some * in the documentation.

Should be cron(0/5 14-21 ? * MON-FRI *)

@sebastian.scholl created a PR to fix this in the docs:
