Thank you, I tried but 2nd last Friday is not even an option for cron builder :-) I have added 2 separate rules. Our build is always 2nd last Friday and it gets tricky with those months when we have 5 Fridays.


Thank you so much for helping out.

Wouldn't it be something like the example here:


0 15 20 ? * 6L 

For it to run at 8.15pm on the last Friday of the month

This is for Last friday, I was looking for 2nd last friday
