In BPA Schedule conditions (triggers) the capability to include/exclude holidays is missing.

Indeed neither the "Interval" drop down box on the "General" tab of the "Schedule Condition" GUI, nor the "Do not trigger" drop down box on the "Exclude dates" dialog shows the "on holidays" option that does exist in Automate 7.

Also in the SMC Options tab, there is no capability to edit holidays (that exist in AM7 System Options).

And BPA's help does not mention the "holiday" word.

While there is a C:\ProgramData\Network Automation\AutoMate BPA Server\Holidays.aho file present.

This looks like the holidays capability was condidered but not implemented.

I don't see any good reason why the BPA schedules can't benefit of the same features as the AM schedules do.

Could N/A tell what it means ?

Hi Jean,

The .aho file was added for a future revision of BPA. This will be incorporated into BPA as soon as possible.

Hi Suresh,

This will be in the next BPA v8 update.

We are still working on this update, so there has not yet been a release date announced.
