A scheduler is set through Forge but running crontab -e in the server (Ubuntu 16.04) outputs no crontab for forge - using an empty one and then opens an empty default file. Where is it being set? The user is the same i.e., forge in this case.

  • Maybe take a look in /etc/crontab or something similar? – ceejayoz Oct 4 '18 at 16:42
  • Thank you @ceejayoz. Everything was included in /etc/crontab but why does crontab -e behave like this? – sinaza Oct 4 '18 at 16:45

Unfortunately, there are a couple ways cron tasks can be configured, in various locations. Looks like Forge puts its tasks in /etc/crontab, which won't be visible/editable with crontab -l or crontab -e.
