Manage device pools

A device pool is a logical grouping of similar type of devices on which bots are run as work items from their respective queues. For example, you can group devices of a particular department/unit and create a device pool for it.


You can manage all device pools that can be used for work items in Workload if you are a device Pool Admin. You can view only those device pools for which you have device Pool Owner, Pool Consumer or both privileges.

The device pool owner privilege allows you to create device pools comprising Bot Runners.

The My device pools page is illustrated in the following figure: Image of My device pools

Note: You need to create device pools to view those in the list. To get started, click the create a device pool here link.

For ease of access, you can search by device pool name.

The following describes the list of items that can be viewed in the table:

  • Connected when the user and device are connected to the Control Room from selected Bot Runner

You can do the following actions on a table column:
  • 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 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 the data that is currently visible to you. The last sorting is stored in memory applied by a user per session.
  • Use a drag-and-drop operation to move the column left or right
  • Move your mouse cursor at the end of the column and drag to re-size
