Exploring processes

📘

Note:

Make sure you:

  • are in the correct Orchestrator folder context, and
  • have the right user permissions to view and manage processes.

 

By Action Center Processes we imply all queues and unattended processes from the Orchestrator folders you have access to.

 

Accessing processes


To access processes, navigate to the Processes tab from the left-hand menu in Automation Cloud.

 

Displaying processes


A card is displayed for every queue or unattended process found in the Orchestrator folders you have access to, containing the following details:

  • Process name
  • Description
  • Recipient folder name
  • Latest publishing date and time
  • Published package version (only for processes)

 

Running processes


To run an unattended process, hover over the process card and click Run .

To trigger an unattended process using a queue, provide the queue schema.
For a sample workflow, click here.

To trigger an unattended process using a file upload, provide the file.
For more information about how to do that, click here.

 

Viewing details


To view a specific process details, hover over the process card and click View details .

The details page opens, displaying an entry for every process run, with the following details:

  • Status
  • Creation date
  • Start date
  • End date
  • Source (for processes)
  • Exception (for queues)

To dive further into details, click View process data for a specific entry. This expands the Input and Output/Result data of the corresponding process, to help you track the changes between entries.

To restart a process, kill it, or remove it from the entries list, click More options .

Logs

To debug your processes or just to track their executions, check the corresponding job logs.
Viewing logs is not available for processes in New state.

  1. In the View Details page of the selected process, open the More Actions menu for a specific run.
  2. Click View logs. The logs page opens, listing all the registered logs for the selected process execution.
  3. For more details about a log entry, click View detail. The Log Detail window opens.

To download the logs to your machine in CSV format, click Download.
We recommend downloading logs periodically to keep them beyond the 30 days retention period.

Wait events of suspended processes

Every time a job or queue enters the suspended state, a new trigger containing the latest wait events is created.

To check the events processes in Suspended state wait on, access the View Wait Events page:

  1. In the View Details page of the selected process, open the More Actions menu for the Suspended execution.
  2. Click View wait events. The wait events page opens, listing the following suspension details:
    • Status—the process corresponding trigger status;
    • Wait Event Type—the type of the event the processes is waiting on ( Task, Queue Item, Job, Time Delay);
    • Identifier—the ID of the event the process is waiting on;
      The ID relates to the wait event type, as follows:
      • Task Action ID
      • Queue Item Queue ID
      • Job Job ID
    • Title—the name of the corresponding queue or process;
    • Assignee—the currently assigned user to complete the action;
      This field is populated only for wait events of type Task. If empty, the task is unassigned.

      This field is populated only for wait events of type Time Delay.
    • Created—the time stamp of the process creation;

Total runs

The Total Runs panel provides simplified analytics of the total number of runs for the corresponding process, in the indicated time span (last 24h, last week, or last month). On the main page of the service, the analytics refer to the total runs of all processes, displaying the recent ones and their status.
