This is a quick question, is there a way to schedule a copy instance job to run on the 4th Saturday of every month? We want to do a monthly backup of a particular instance but ensure it runs at the weekend. In cron I can't find a way to specify that with the fields available in ylastic.

    Sorry, there is no way to specify a job to run on the 4th saturday of every month using plain cron format without the job itself having some custom code to check that.
