No human input required means that no “human in the loop” is required - once invoked, these automations are designed to execute without human involvement/intervention. Click the link below matching the Solution Pattern Model for your use case for details on an appropriate automation template/framework, as well as the specific least privilege roles needed for execution. How will your automation be executed?
There are 4 Solution Patterns for running Unattended Automations:
- Initiating an automation run directly from the Control Room ad-hoc to run on unattended runners.
- Initiating an automation using the Control Room API to run on one or more unattended runners/devices
- A ‘variation’ of ‘Run Remote via API’, this pattern involves invoking automation from an external “chatbot”
- The automation will be executed on one or more unattended runners/devices.
- An automation that is initiated/configured using the Control Room scheduling capabilities to run on one or more unattended runners/devices.
- Usage: any time you need a process executed on a schedule.
There are 2 Solution Patterns for running Attended Automation:
Run Local on Demand
- Initiating an automation run directly from the Control Room ad-hoc to run on the local machine
Run Local via Event Trigger
- An automation that is initiated from an event trigger, run locally on the user's workstation
Workload Management (WLM)
There are 5 Solution Patterns for running Automations with WLM:
Run Remote on Demand with WLM
- an automation that is initiated using the Run Task Bot functionality of the Control Room to execute an automation that adds Work Items to a Queue
Run Remote via API with WLM
- using the Control Room API to add Work Items to a WLM Queue
Run Remote via Schedule with WLM
- an automation that is initiated/configured using the Control Room scheduling capabilities to execute and add Work Items to a WLM Queue
Run Local on Demand with WLM
- Initiating an automation directly from the Control Room that will execute on the local device that adds Work Items to a Queue
Run Local via Event Trigger with WLM
- An automation that is initiated from an event trigger where Work Items are added to a WLM queue
