How to prevent the execution of a job or an order for the last sunday of a month

Question: I would like to know if there a way to prevent the execution of a job or an order at a specific day? For example, a job or an order that runs every day of every month. But I would like to stop it the last Sunday of each month.

Example run-time configuration to prevent the execution of a job or an order for the last sunday of a month
<run_time>
  <weekdays>
    <day day="1 2 3 4 5 6">
      <period single_start="13:00"/>
    </day>
  </weekdays>
  <monthdays>
    <weekday day="7" which="-1">
      <period single_start="13:00"/>
    </weekday>
    <weekday day="7" which="-2">
      <period single_start="13:00" when_holiday="ignore_holiday"/>
    </weekday>
    <weekday day="7" which="-3">
      <period single_start="13:00" when_holiday="ignore_holiday"/>
    </weekday>
    <weekday day="7" which="-4">
      <period single_start="13:00" when_holiday="ignore_holiday"/>
    </weekday>
  </monthdays>

  <holidays>
    <weekdays>
      <day day="7"/>
    </weekdays>
  </holidays>
</run_time>

How to prevent the execution of a job or an order at a specific monthday?

Question: How to run a job or an order every day but stop it the 15th of each month?

Example run-time configuration to run a job or an order every day but stop it the 15th of each month
<run_time>
  <monthdays>
    <day day="1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31">

    </day>
  </monthdays>
</run_time>

How to stop a job or an order for a period that is not previously defined?

Question: How can I stop a job or an order for a specific period that is not previously defined? Example: my order is a daily order. But on e.g. 2013-05-01 I have a maintenance on the machine. So I would like to stop one chain or all the chains.

To prevent the execution of a job or an order at a specific (not predefined) day you can define a holidays file, e.g. in $SCHEDULER_DATA/config/live/holiday.xml like this:

Example holiday configuration for a holiday file
<holidays>
  <holiday day="2013-05-01"/>
</holidays>

 

and include it into your job(s) and order(s) with

Example run-time configuration for maintenance day
<run_time>
  <period  single_start="12:00"/>
  <holidays>
    <include live_file="/holiday.xml"/>
  </holidays>
</run_time>

 

Referencing a central configuration file for holidays as for the above holiday.xml would be effective for all jobs and orders using this file. Modifications to that file will be applied on-the-fly by JobScheduler.
