Edit queues

Edit a queue using two methods - from the Queues list, or from the View queue page.


Ensure that you are logged in to the Control Room as the administrator.

Permissions required:
  1. AAE_Queue Admin role.
  2. Queue Owner rights to edit queues that you created.
  3. Queue Participant rights to edit queues that are created by other queue owners.

You are allowed to edit a work item only if it is in New, Data error, On hold, Ready to run, or Failed state.

Edit a queue from the View queue page or from the Queues list.

    • When you edit a queue and set new auto retry number, the new number is only applicable to the new failed work items. If the queue owner changes the auto retry attempt value to a number less than the existing number, the work item will not be retried.
