Cortex XSOAR: Add a Job: First Friday of the Month

Hello all

We are using Cortex XSOAR Version Version 6.0.0; Build 79522 and having problems to generate a valid schedule in the Jobs.

I would like to add a Job, which runs on first Firday of the Month.

The Human View part has no Monthly recurring tasks.

The Cron View does not unterstand these settings:


0 21 ? * 6#1 -> the background turns red on "Update job"

00 21 1-7 * 5 -> the next Run will be on the 13th of November 2020


Can anyone solve this?

Hi Roger!

Yes, that's quite a problem!  It looks like Cron doesn't have a good way to identify specifically which week it's running in.  The recommendation would be to run the job weekly but have the first section of your playbook determine if it's within the first 7 days.  You can do that with the GetTime task with the dateFormat = Day.  Something like the following will accomplish that for you:


I hope that helps!

As a quick follow up my task is slightly misnamed and should have been "Day of Month"!
