Operation name: Setsearchandprocessschedule


Permits custom code to take action on the entire set of search results. For example, the Search and Add to Hold page, which is part of the Records Center Site Template, allows users to specify a search query. The results of this query are saved, and, when the search and process timer job runs, the results are added to a specified hold. This operation allows customers to set how often the timer job will run.
