The FlexDeploy group which is responsible for approving or rejecting the task associated with this step.  Sample cron expressions are provided in the  drop-down.  A free cron expression builder such as Cron Maker can also be used, but it must be compatible with

Starting in the 4.6 release, multiple Cron Expressions can be specified using semicolon as a delimeter. For example, 

0 0 11 ? * *;0 0 12 ? * *

is equivalent to

0 0 11-12 ? * *

This allows for Cron Expressions that are scheduled to run on the 2nd and 4th Friday which is not normally possible with Quartz Cron.

A new Admin Screen was added to test expressions in the Administration Menu on the Admin Operations Screen.

Schedule Override RoleThe pipeline role which is allowed to continue execution prior to the step completing on the configured schedule.


An optional Groovy script which determines whether the gate or step is applicable during execution. The script has access to variables and methods listed in Pipeline Groovy Variables and Methods. You can find these variables methods using Variable Lookup help.

The script must return true if the gate is applicable, or false otherwise.  If no script is provided, the default is to return true (applicable).

ContinueIf checked, any failure will be ignored, and the pipeline execution will continue.
Notify Pipeline RoleSelects one or more roles from the pipeline definition to notify in case of error.  Default role members are defined on the pipeline, and optional overridden for each release.
