Hi,

I have a requirement in which, I need to run a message flow at a particular time everyday. The flow needs to read from Queue and do processing. The issue with the timer node that I am facing is that the message flow executes just once. I want the message flow to read all the messages from the Queue at that time and then restarts again the next day.

Is there any way to do this out of box?

Thanks

hi...It is possible to trigger a flow at a specific time using TimeoutControl and TimeoutNotification flows, see topic

...but I guess you would be better off keeping the design simple if possible, what is the real reason for having to process the messages at a specific time? can't the business problem be solved by a standard flow listening on the Queue continuously?

This needs to be done since they the client needs to reprocess rejected messages everyday at a particular time. If done regularly, it would interfere with normal processing.

With Timeout Notification and Timeout Control node, I can play with number of times message flow is invoked by defining Count and Interval. Something like this:

<Count>-1</Count>
<Interval>45</Interval>

However, the issue with above is that the MF will be invoked indefinite number of times every 45 seconds. But thats the not result that I want.

Thanks

If you want it to run once, and at a specific time, I'd use the MF external scheduler (CA7 or equivalent) to pick it off rather than a Timer node.
