Allow bigger integers in Frequency based interval setting for interfaces

When setting an interface to run, we wanted to schedule the job to run at odd numbers to prevent too many launching at once.

Trying to set the interval to 1027 seconds (17 min and 7 sec) resulted in DSMA being unable to load the screen for any of the interfaces.  There was an error regarding the conversion of the integer to a varchar.  I had to edit the underlying table values to a lower number and then the screen worked again.    I would suggest that the ideal would be to allow larger integers or alternatively, to prevent larger numbers being saved.

    Thanks Phil, I'll get this added to the backlog and investigated within a future release.  The max limit currently is 3 digits if you are going to use the seconds example you gave.

    no problem.

    Automate > Interfaces > select or create a new entry with a frequency based schedule..

    Go to vertical view, go to Schedule info tab.

    Select UOM = Second, change Frequency see image.
