I've written a custom module and the module has to run every Wednesday at 07:10. I've written a cron job and in the schedule. Below is the code added in crontab.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Cron:etc/crontab.xsd">
<group id="Vendorname_Modulename"> 
    <job name="Vendorname_Modulename" instance="Netelixir\ProductFeed\Cron\Testcron" method="execute">
        <schedule>00-10 7 * * 3</schedule>

The cron job is not working as expected. The cron is working only when it's scheduled to run every minute or 5 minutes or 30 minutes. But not at a particular time. Can anyone help me with this scenario?

First, check the status in the cron_schedule table and take the necessary action.

SELECT * FROM `cron_schedule` WHERE `job_code` = 'your_cron_job_name'

Also, your schedule will be run on At every minute from 0 through 10 past hour 7 on Wednesday. So it will be run 10 times from 2021-07-21 07:00:00 to 2021-07-21 07:10:00.

To run At 07:10 on Wednesday, we need to use 10 7 * * 3

  • Thanks for the response. I want the cron to run from 0 to 10 mins at 7 on Wednesday. But it's still not working. Jul 14, 2021 at 11:25
  • what is the status of the job on the cron table? Jul 14, 2021 at 11:44
  • There are no entries for that job at that time. Jul 14, 2021 at 12:03
  • It is probably due to time zone difference and time mismatch. Jul 14, 2021 at 12:06
  • I've scheduled the cron job as per the server time stamp. Jul 14, 2021 at 12:20
