Hello,

I have a python script that I created in ArcGIS Pro with Model Builder that appends features to a feature class stored in SDE. 

I need this script to run every hour. 

Can this be done on ArcGIS Server? I have it running on task scheduler on a VM, but this is not ideal. 

Thank you, 

Michael

If the question is asking if ArcGIS Server Manager has any type of scheduling ability, no it does not.  You can run the script from the machine that ArcGIS Server is installed on, but it would still require Windows Task Scheduler to kick off the script to run.

Could you create a python script, and schedule the task using Windows Task Scheduler? This process will work at Desktop/Enterprise Geodatabase level. And a faster one too.

Ended up realizing the only way to do what I wanted was to use scheduled notebooks (available only after 10.8.1 ArcGIS Server). More info here: https://enterprise.arcgis.com/en/notebook/latest/administer/windows/automate-notebook-execution.htm

I personally did not end up going with notebooks because we do not have the license for it. I therefore just stuck with task scheduler like you all suggested. 

Thanks for the input!
