ExclusionWindow - updateWindowWithMonthlySchedule

Description :

This command updates an existing Exclusion Window to have a monthly schedule, with support for all schedule choices (specific day of a particular week of every month, particular day of every month or last day of every month).

There are three types of monthly schedules that are supported. The command requires specifying one of the types listed below.

  • Specific day of every month=0
  • Specific day of a week of every month=1
  • Last day of every month=2

The dateString argument defines a monthly schedule to be added to the window. It must be in the format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.

Use the dayOfWeekOrMonth argument to specify the day when the window is active. For last day of month schedule (scheduleType=2) this argument gets ignored and you may specify -1 as its value. For specific day of month schedule (scheduleType=0), this specifies actual calendar day (1-31) and for specific day of a week schedule (scheduleType=1) it provides the actual day of the week based on the following scheme.

  • SUNDAY=1
  • MONDAY=2
  • FRIDAY=32

Use the weekOfMonth argument for specific day of a week schedule (scheduleType=1), to select the week in which the window will be active. Set value to -1 to set the window to be active in last week of every month. Please note any value entered gets ignored for all other type of schedules (scheduleType=0 or scheduleType=2).
