Hi, 

I have a queue with work items and assigned it to a device pool. Queue is in inuse state and the work items are in “Ready to run” state but the Bot is not executing. No error messages in Audit logs as well. 

 

Please help me resolve the issue

Thanks

Title

Automation 360 WLM : WorkItems stuck in Ready to Run Status

Summary

Applicable for Automation 360 (formerly Automation Anywhere Enterprise A2019) v.18 & v.19

WLM queue unable to deploy workitems in the device associated with device pool, making the items stuck in Ready to Run status.

Cause

Right after an upgrade from Automation 360 v.17 to Automation 360 v.18/Automation 360 v.19; we observed that cache was going into this state where currentAutomationIndex is set to 0 and the pool's scheme would be AUTOMATION_SCHEME_UNKNOWN for Device pool status.

We have a workaround in this case and that's to just drop the device pool and recreate it as it'll reset the cache.

Resolution/Workaround

The permanent fix will be available in Automation 360 v.20 version of Control room.

@rbkadiyam  @VanithaR  has this been fixed? I am facing this same issue in v27

Hi @Andoni Yes. We manually ran the Bot in the VM in attended mode (which eventually failed) but somehow this made the queue to pick up the VM correctly when we triggered the queue again. 

This is so weird that it resolved the issue, but unfortunately we were unable to find the root cause because there was no errors even in the Control Room Web CR logs. Not sure if this will resolve your issue, but just give a try and let me know if it works

 

Thanks

Thanks a lot for your response! I just deleted the device pool associated with the “Run bot with queue”, re-created it and eventually it worked (I am not 100% sure that this has been the solution of it...)

 

So weird….
