Question

Can we specify a subset of runner machines from the Device pool to run a WLM automation?

We have a device pool having 5 runner machines. Several WLM automations are scheduled on this pool. We need to deploy one more WLM automation but that requires configuration which is done on only two runners. Can I still use the same device pool to create an automation and specify just those 2 machines. Note- The other WLM automations can run on any of the 5 machines hence we cannot reduce the devices in this device pool.

Hello @Ruchir Agarwal​ 

 

Thank you for posting in Automation Anywhere user community forum!

 

  • As per the current behavior and design of the application, a user cannot select a few particular devices from a Device Pool to run automation via a queue
  • When bots are deployed using a Device pool, all the devices in the pool will be utilized

Hi Team,

Thank you for replying! But probably this would be a good feature to have when multiple bots are expected to be running on a Device Pool, a few may have limitation to be run on a subset of machines (eg. I have only 2 sets of SAP credentials for a process that I want to run on a device pool having 5 runner machines).

 

Is there a place where we can submit our suggestions for new features to be included in upcoming versions?
