Managing Jobs

Starting a Job

This procedure starts from the presumption that you previously created a process.

  1. In the Jobs page, click the Start Job button. The Start Job window is displayed.
  1. From the Process drop-down list, select a previously deployed process. The Robots section is populated with all the Robots associated with that process.
  2. Select the Robot(s) that you want to execute the indicated package.
  3. Click Start. The Start Jobs window closes and the execution starts. The status of each job is displayed, in real time, in the Jobs page.

Note:

Unattended Robots can execute processes only if the Windows credentials are provided (username and password). For more information, see Registering a Robot to Orchestrator.

Stopping a Job

Click the corresponding More Actions more_actions button, and then Stop. The automation project is executed until it finds a Should Stop activity. During this time, the job is in the Canceling state. If the activity is encountered, the execution is stopped, and the job's final status is Canceled. If a Should Stop activity is not found, the job execution does not stop until it reaches the end of the project. The final status, in this case, is Successful.

Killing a Job

Click the corresponding More Actions more_actions button, and then Kill. The automation project is executed until it finds a Should Stop activity. During this time, the job is in the Terminating state. If the activity is found, the execution is stopped, the job's final status is Canceled, and a "Job canceled" message is displayed in the Job Details window. If the Should Stop activity is not found, the process is forcefully stopped, the job is marked as Canceled, and a "Job [job name] was stopped (forced)!" message is displayed in the Job Details window.

To view the logs for a specific job, click the corresponding More Actions more_actions button, and then View Logs. The Logs page is displayed and contains only data regarding the indicated job.
