This setting allows administrators to configure duration of jobs and the GC checkers.
Scheduling jobs gives administrators control over when jobs run. These jobs can be scheduled in two ways:
Scanning interval – where jobs are scheduled on regular interval in minutes.
Cron expression – where jobs are scheduled via cron expression to run at specific timetables.
Look at the Git Integration app job names in Jira Administration ➜ System ➜ Scheduler details:
Expand them to observe schedule, duration, last run, duration, and next run.
Repository reindexing and Garbage collection and revision validation checkers settings are now moved into the Scheduled Jobs settings group.
Reindex interval – Set the automatic reindex interval frequency value in minutes as required. Default value is 5 minutes.
Configuration of the scheduler jobs are no longer accessible in the Jira administration page. For this case, the Git for Jira app offers Jira administrators this capability via the General screen. Minimum value is 1. Maximum value is 76,861,433,640,456. Only whole numbers are allowed.
Garbage collection and revision validation checkers
Job interval – Set the number of minutes that will elapse before a repository is checked to see if it should be garbage collected. The default value is 1440 minutes.
For detailed information, see introductory article on Scheduling Jobs.
