start/stop schedule options

Hi all,

I'm wondering if it is possible to set an EC2 instance to start at 8am on a Monday morning then stop at 8pm on Friday?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Jayson,

You can accomplish what you want by using a “Stop EC2 Instance” or “Stop Multiple EC2 Instances” action.

Configure the action to start at 8pm on Fridays, then set the following fields:

  • Restart the Instance: Yes
  • Time Before Restart: 2 days, 12 hours after the action starts

This should keep your EC2 instances running through the week, and have them off for the weekend.
