NAME crontab - maintain crontab files for individual users
SYNOPSIS crontab [-u user] file crontab [-u user] [-l | -r | -e | -s] [-i] (blank) default operation is replace -u, --user edit some other user's crontab -l, --list list user's crontab -r, --remove delete user's crontab -e, --edit edit user's crontab -s, --show show all user who have a crontab -i, --ask prompt before deleting user's crontab
DESCRIPTION Crontab is the program used to let users install, deinstall or list recurrent jobs in the legacy cron format. Each user can have their own crontab, and though these are files in /var/spool/cron/crontabs, they are not intended to be edited directly. These jobs are then automatically translated in systemd Timers & Units by systemd-crontab- generator.
FILES /var/spool/cron/crontabs Directory for users crontabs. /etc/cron.allow list of users that can use crontab /etc/cron.deny list of users that aren't allowed to use crontab (by default, only root can use crontab)
LIMITATIONS SELinux is not supported.
