I am looking for the way to define QoS policy on ASA 5520 only from 8:00 till 16:00

We use Cisco security manager and cannot find option to specify time interval.

I didn't find such option in ASDM as well

Can you help me?

Thanks, Igor

Yes, you can use time range ACL to match the traffic, and apply the QoS accordingly.

On CSM: Firewall --> Access Rules --> Add a new ACL/ACE --> click on the "Advanced" button --> there would be "Time Range" option to configure time range.

Thanks for the answer

Probably I misunderstand something

You wrote about time range in Access rule, and I really see this option in Access rule in CSM

But when I define QoS - I define  Access control list, Traffic flow and then I define QoS in
CSM --> PIX/ASA/FWSM Platform --> Service Policy Rules  --> IPS, QoS and Connections Rules

And I didn't find option to define time range not in ACL, not in Traffic flow and not in QoS options

You are absolutely right. I have just double checked that in the lab, and there is no time-range option for QoS on CSM.

You might want to open a TAC case for that.
