Question

Is there a way to queue a triggered bot while a scheduled process is already running?

I have a vm with various scheduled bot runs (9:00, 10:00, etc). I also have a new bot that is triggered on demand (file trigger). If my on-demand bot is triggered while a scheduled bot is running, is it possible to queue the triggered bot to run after the scheduled bot is done running?

 

In the current state, if my on-demand bot is triggered while another process is running, the on-demand bot will fail to launch.

 

Let me know, thanks!

Ideally if it is a normal bot run then it should sit in the queue until VM is free but this is on-demand bot triggered .

 

Could you please raise a support ticket with AA team.

Hi @Eric Sullivan​ ,

 

Yes you can queue this using "Automation priority" feature in A360. PFB Steps

 

  1. Log in to the Control Room as a Bot Creator user.
  2. In the private workspace, select a bot for which you want to set the priority.
  3. The bot is opened in edit mode.
  4. From the actions menu (vertical ellipsis), select Advanced settings.
  5. Set the Automation priority to high, medium, or low based on your requirements.
  6. When bots are queued for a Bot Runner user, bots with higher priority are deployed before bots with lower priority. However, if a bot with lower priority is already running, bots with higher priority are deployed after the bot with lower priority completes running.
  7. The default permission is set to medium.
  8. Return to the bot editor and save the bot.

Thanks for the reply, I think it wasn't queueing because I was attempting this in my dev CR. It queued properly in my QA CR
