Monitor in progress activity

Monitor the ongoing automation activities, which you have triggered or scheduled from the In progress activity page of the Control Room. Manage one or more automation activities using the pause, stop, or resume operation.

Prerequisites

The following permissions are required:
  • View my In progress activity to monitor and manage all ongoing automations on the bots for which you have either Upload, Download, or Delete permission.
  • View everyone's In progress activity along with View my bots and Run my bots activity permissions to monitor and manage all ongoing automations on the bots with corresponding folder permissions.
  • Version 11.3.4View All in progress activity to see all ongoing automations, irrespective of the Bot folder permission.

Procedure

  1. View the progress of the bots being downloaded from the Bot Store.
  2. View the in progress automations on Bot Runner machines that have the Run Time window hidden from view.
  3. Apply search parameters to Status, Activity Type, Bot, Queue, Device, and Item Name columns for ease of access.
    Tip: When you specify search parameters for the same column, the system searches using the OR operator. When you specify search parameters for different columns, the system searches using the AND operator.
  4. Perform the following actions on a column for efficiency:
    1. Click a column to sort it in ascending and descending order.
      You can sort up to three columns by holding the Shift key when you click two or more columns. This gives you the option of sorting two additional columns. This way, the sorting is done on the entire table and not just on the data that is currently visible to you. The last sorting is stored in the memory applied by a user per session.
    2. Use a drag-and-drop operation to move the column left or right.
    3. Move your mouse cursor at the end of the column and drag it to resize it.
  5. Monitor the following in the Activity table:
    1. Check whether the Status of the activity is:
      Active (In progress) for a bot running on Bot Runner machines.
      Paused for a bot that is paused either from the Control Room or a device.
      Unknown for a bot that fails to run for unknown reasons.
      Waiting for user input for a bot that is paused and requires an input from a user.
      Note: Version 11.3.3Only Active status is applicable to the bots and Digital Workers downloaded from the Bot Store.
    2. View the Progress of the activity, in percentage.
    3. Check whether the Activity Type is:
      Run Bot
      Import queue files
      Run bot with queue
      Version 11.3.3Bot Store - Download bots
    4. View the time when the activity was Started On.
      This is in the format HH:MM:SS YYYY-MM-DD.
    5. View the name of the bot.
    6. Version 11.3.3View the name of the bot package being downloaded from the Bot Store.
    7. View the Queue name.
      Note: Version 11.3.3This column is not applicable for the bots and Digital Workers downloaded from the Bot Store.
    8. Check the Device on which the activity is running.
      Note: Version 11.3.3This column is not applicable for the bots and Digital Workers downloaded from the Bot Store.
    9. Check the Username, which is an Control Room user account used for running the automation on a remote Bot Runner.
    10. Check the name of the automation in Item Name.
  6. Perform the following table-level actions for a set of multiple activities:
    1. Refresh the list of activities listed in the table.
    2. Pause in progress activities that are being performed on the bot.
    3. Resume in progress activities that were paused.
    4. Stop in progress activities regardless of the activity stage of a bot.
    5. Export in progress activities list to a csv file.
    6. Move to History the selected activities.
    7. Click the Customize columns icon to show the list of available columns. Select to add a column.

      This is visible only when you pause the activity.
