How do I setup and use Operation Hours?

Event-based schedules poll the event-source continuously. But you may want it to be "live" only at certain times. Operational Hours allow you to setup times during which an event is will trigger an Event-Based schedule.

System - Operation Hours

  • Go to System.
Power BI and SSRS. PBRS Home Menu
  • Select Operation Hours.
Power BI and SSRS. Operation Hours in PBRS.

Operational Hours allow you to setup times during which an event is allowed to trigger an Event-Based schedule. If an event occurs during operational hours, the scheduled tasks will execute. For example, if you only wanted PBRS to monitor your database in the overnight hours, then this option would be quite useful.
