Schedule a bot

Schedule a bot to run at a specific time.

Prerequisites

This task is performed by the Control Room administrator. You must have the necessary rights and permissions to complete this task. Ensure you are logged in to the Control Room as the administrator.

You must have the Schedule my bots to run permission to schedule bots.

Note: Automation will fail in the following cases:
  • If any of the bot dependencies are missing.
  • If you do not have folder privileges on the dependencies.
  • If you do not have the scheduling permissions.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Manage > Scheduled.
  2. Click Run bot.
  3. Click Schedule bot.
  4. Enter the Name.
  5. Optional: Enter a description.
  6. Add the scheduling details for the bot.
    Note: The value of the Start date is always later than or equal to the current date. If the start date is the current date, the scheduled time cannot be less than the current time.

    Run once To run the bot at a specified time, enter the:
    Start date
    Default value is the current day.
    Start time
    Default value is roundup to the next half-hour.

    Available bots are displayed along with any Input values and dependencies.
  8. Select the Bot Runner user from the Available bot runners list.
    To enable a device, it must be connected to the Control Room.
    Note: If a device does not appear in the list, ensure the user scheduling the bots is assigned a role that provides access to the appropriate Run-As Users.

    Select the pool from the list of available device pools.

    When a bot is deployed, the Control Room selects the first available device based on the order in which you organized the device pools. If none of the devices are available at the time of deployment, the bot is queued.
  12. Click Schedule bot.
The Schedule bot option remains disabled until all the required items, such as bots, schedule details, and devices, are selected.
