How to start a job in Register-ScheduledJob

i have use Register-ScheduledJob

and register a job ,

Register-ScheduledJob -ScriptBlock $setu 

and could get the schedulejob with Get-ScheduledJob


Id         Name            JobTriggers     Command                                  Enabled   
--         ----            -----------     -------                                  -------   
1          setu            0                (Invoke-WebRequest https://www.jilig... True      

problem is how can i start to job manualy in the schedulejob?

I think just to run it as a manual one off, Start-Job can do it: Start-Job (Microsoft.PowerShell.Core) - PowerShell | Microsoft Learn. Looks like you might have to pass it the Type parameter of PSScheduledJob.

If you want to do something on a schedule I think you need a job trigger. Take a look at: about Scheduled Jobs - PowerShell | Microsoft Learn and New-JobTrigger (PSScheduledJob) - PowerShell | Microsoft Learn

i am sorry ,i was trying to use the Register-ScheduledJob and run the job without trigger

i try to use Get-ScheduledJob and get the command and run it but fail

The call operator won’t work with that command structure. You can either use Invoke-Expression to run the string as a command:

Invoke-Expression (Get-ScheduledJob -Name 'Test').Command

or use the call operator, but convert the String to a ScriptBlock:

& ([ScriptBlock]::Create((Get-ScheduledJob -Name 'Test').Command))
