29th January to 20th February.
29th April to 20th May.
29th July to 20th August.
29th October to 20th November.

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)

Resolution

Assuming that you need to create a calendar for all days in the following periods:

29th January to 20th February.
29th April to 20th May.
29th July to 20th August.
29th October to 20th November

You can first create a cycle to include the above four periods as shown as an example as follows:

Enter Cycle Name: Cycle_32158943
Description :

Start Date : 01/29/1972 00:00:00
End Date : 02/20/1972 00:00:00

Start Date : 04/29/1972 00:00:00
End Date : 05/20/1972 00:00:00

Start Date : 07/29/1972 00:00:00
End Date : 08/20/1972 00:00:00

Start Date : 10/29/1972 00:00:00
End Date : 11/20/1972 00:00:00

You can then use this cycle to create an extended calendar that includes all days in those periods:

Enter Calendar Name: ExtCal_32158943
Name : ExtCal_32158943
Description :
Workdays : all
Holiday Calendar :
Cycle Name : Cycle_32158943
Holiday Action :
Non Workday Action : N
Date Adjustment : 0
Date Conditions : CYCLE

This can be done using autocal_asc or QuickEdit in WCC.
