Configure the widget life-cycle retry scheduleCommunities uses the IBM WAS scheduler to run a scheduled task that processes events in the widget life-cycle event queue. You can configure the frequency with which this task runs by editing settings in the communities-config.xml file.
Before you beginTo edit configuration files, use the WAS wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for details.
About this taskTo configure the widget life-cycle retry schedule, edit settings in the communities-config.xml file. You can define the interval at which the task runs and specify when the scheduler starts the task. The interval property is configured with a Cron schedule. For more information about the WAS scheduler and the Cron schedule, see Scheduling tasks.

- From the dmgr host:
If prompted to specify a service to connect to, type 1 to pick the first node in the list. Most commands can run on any node. If the command writes or reads information to or from a file using a local file path, pick the node where the file is stored.
- Check out the Communities configuration files using the following command:
- <working_directory> is the temporary working directory to which the configuration XML and XSD files are copied. The files are kept in this working directory while you make changes to them.
Note: AIX and Linux only: The directory must grant write permissions or the command will not run successfully.
- <cell_name> is the name of the WAS cell hosting the IBM Connections application. This argument is required. If you do not know the cell name, you can determine it by typing the following command in the wsadmin command processor:
To view the current configuration settings, use the following command:
Note: After updating any of the configuration settings, you can use this command again to display your updates.

Table 1. LifecycleRetryQueuedEvents properties
Property Description task.LifecycleRetryQueuedEvents.enabled Enables or disables the life-cycle retry queued events task.
This property accepts the following values: true or false.
task.LifecycleRetryQueuedEvents.interval Specifies the interval at which the life-cycle retry queued events task runs.
This property is specified in Cron format. For more information about using the Cron format, see Scheduling tasks.
When you change the interval property, the new schedule is registered the next time that Communities is started on any server in the Communities cluster (if there is one).
CommunitiesConfigService.updateConfig("task.LifecycleRetryQueuedEvents.interval", "0 1 0-23/1 ? * *")
After making changes, check the configuration files back in, and do so during the same wsadmin session in which you checked them out for the changes to take effect. See Apply property changes in Communities for information about how to save and apply your changes.
