How to set cycles for loading force during fatigue test in Ansys workbench ?

Hi everyone,

I'm a new user of Ansys workbench. I'm studying 3D printed metallic structures and I'd like to test them in fatigue. I want to set steps for the loading force : step 1 = 4 seconds ramp to 6 kN, then step 2 = 50 seconds of sinus between 0.6 kN and 6 kN, then step 3 = 4 seconds of tension at 6 kN and then go back to step 2 and so on and so forth. So it should look like that : step1, step2, step3, go back to step2, step3, go back to step 2, step 3, etc until the specimen breaks. So do you know how could I do this ? and how could I set this kind of cycle ?
