Execution schedule recommendation

The Execution schedule field allows you to set the feed to run automatically at specified intervals. Running the feed too frequently can strain resources and exhaust API rate limits. Follow your feed provider’s recommendations when setting the Execution schedule.

The Execution schedule field is set to None by default.

Silobreaker recommends that you:

  • Manually run the incoming feed. Set the Execution schedule to None.

  • Or automatically run the incoming feed a maximum of once every 30 minutes:

    1. Set the Execution schedule to: Every [n] minutes

    2. Then, select 30 from the drop-down menu that appears below so that the line reads:

      “Every 30 minutes”
