A scheduled rule was triggered. Is it possible to change a date of the scheduled action? (programmatically or not) For example, the scheduled action will be triggered in 3 days but then you would like to change it for 1 day.

Yes, the timestamp of when the task is to be scheduled is stored in rules_scheduler db table, in date field. You can run a query like:

  ->expression('date', 'date + 86400') // 86400 = 24 * 60 * 60
  ->condition('tid', $your_task_id)
  • I have a question. Is $your_task_id equal to tid in this case? Commented Nov 11, 2014 at 8:30
  • Yes, this query will update the task which has tid equal to $your_task_id Commented Nov 11, 2014 at 13:03
