Create workload queues
A queue is one of the main building blocks of Workload Management (WLM). A queue holds data known as Work Items for further processing. The system distributes these Work Items to individual unattended Bot Runners in a device pool for processing.
For workload automation create and attach a work item template to a bot, create device pools, add Bot Runners to the pool, create queues, add queue owners/participants/consumers, define the work item structure, insert work items, and finally run the automation with the queue.
- Create queues using default workload parameters (express queues)
Create queues with default parameters for workload automation using the express queue option in the Control Room.
- Create and attach work item template to a bot
Attach a work item template to a TaskBot to use the TaskBot in workload automation.
- Create device pools and add
bot runners to the pool
Create a device pool with a unique name and add Unattended Bot Runners to the device pool.
- Create queues
Create queues that hold specific sets of data your bot is expecting for automation. To create queues, an Control Room administrator assigns the AAE_Queue Admin role with View and manage my queues, Create queues, Administer all queues, and View my in progress activity permissions.
- Add queue owners
Add queue owners who can create, edit, and view queues.
- Add participants to queue
Add queue participants from different roles defined in the Control Room. This is an optional step.
- Add consumers of queues
Add queue consumers from different roles defined in the Control Room. This is an optional step.
- Define Work Item structure
Define the Work Item structure for processing in a queue. This enables you to manually upload the Work Items from the system in the absence of ready data in a file.
- Insert Work Items
Add Work Items from an Excel or CSV file to the queue after you define the structure.
