Automation Suite 2022.10.0 is now available.
The capabilities and fixes described in these release notes are currently available only in standalone Insights.
The Insights team is excited to present a new release.
To give you a brief overview, 2022.10 comes with two new Templates, the ability to restrict user data by the folders they have permissions to in Orchestrator, improvements to existing templates to provide additional metrics for measuring your automation program, reduced installation complexity via scripts, and the ability to export historical modeled data to external tools to user for analysis and dashboard.
If you've tried Cloud Insights, you might recognize some of the updates.
You can now keep track of your automation benefits outside of Insights using your own reporting tools such as Power BI, Tableau, etc. Export historical Insights data covering Jobs, Queues, Robot Logs, Process Manual Values, and Queue Manual Values to add it to your business data. The data export is done through a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package that you need to deploy and configure in your environment.
A new template to calculate ROI based on transactions via queues is now available.
You can now capture a snapshot of your robotic workforce and Attended RPA usage through the Attended Reporting template. For a deeper dive into the metrics, see this blog written by the Insights product team .
Insights installation time has been trimmed down by adding two scripts covering the initial steps for preparing the Linux and Windows environments.
You can now choose to enable a tenant-level setting that restricts the data that Insights users can access based on the folders they have access to in Orchestrator. Use this feature to make sure that users are only able to view data that's relevant to them.
To enforce data restrictions based on Orchestrator folder permissions, see Folder permissions
Long running workflows are now supported through a new Jobs measure called Total Suspended Time in Seconds. You can use this measure to report the accurate robot utilization time for a long running job. For example, you can measure a job’s total runtime by subtracting the time spent in Suspended state from the job duration in seconds.
Additionally, Time in Pending in Seconds now includes the time a job spends between the Suspended state and the In Progress state.
The Business ROI template now subtracts the time a job spent in the Suspended state from every visualization on the dashboard to support Long Running Workflows.
Robot Logs Raw Message will be deprecated and no longer supported starting with the 2023.4 release (see Insights deprecation timeline).
The deployment configuration of an Insights installation connected to an Orchestrator installed as PaaS on Azure App Service is now supported. The Insights feature can now be enabled as a parameter when you run the Orchestrator scripts to install Orchestrator on an Azure App Service.

Insights has been tested at scale to provide metrics for data ingestion, background processes and dashboard loading times. You can review Performance and scalability.

This version of Insights is available in two deployment models:
- standalone Insights
- Insights service which is part of Automation Suite
The product is similar enough across deployment types to share the same documentation.
But differences do exist. When certain information applies to only one of the deployments, we use the following labels:
- - only applies to standalone Insights and does not apply to Automation Suite Insights.
- - only applies to Automation Suite Insights and does not apply to standalone Insights.
Whenever there is no label, the information applies to both deployment types.
We recommend that you regularly check the deprecation timeline for any updates regarding features that will be deprecated and removed.
