Alerts for exceeding the API rate limits

We have recently announced the upcoming enforcement of rate limits on API requests to certain jobs and queue items endpoints. You can brush up on the details in the Rate limits and API audit documentation pages.

We want you to be fully aware not only of these limits, but also of the scenarios where you might be impacted by them. As such, we have implemented two new alerts aimed at informing you when limits are exceeded:
  • Request rate exceeded the limit in the last day - This is a daily alert with the Warn severity, enabled by default.
  • Request rate exceeded the limit - This is a real-time alert with the Error severity, disabled by default.
    Note: The checks corresponding to this alert are run every 10 minutes, meaning that there might be a delay of up to 10 minutes between the limit breach and the alert receipt.

Both alerts specify the endpoint impacted by the limit breach, with a link to the applicable API audit section of the tenant monitoring window.

Discontinuing the Robot role for new tenants

As part of our ongoing endeavor to modernize our access control infrastructure, we have made the decision to discontinue the mixed Robot role for new tenants. It will, however, continue to be available for all existing tenants.

This is the role combination you can use to replicate the same permissions:
  • Allow to be Automation User at the tenant level
  • Automation User at the folder level

Please also check out the Recommended role-to-group mapping page for further suggestions.

Unattended setup improvements

We have improved the experience of creating a new unattended setup. The changes are the following:
  • We have replaced the ACR VMs reference with ERO VMs under the Self hosted (Unattended Robot) section.
  • We have renamed the Unattended Robot option to Unattended setup when creating a new unattended setup.
  • We have renamed the Add machine button to Create a new machine template when configuring the unattended infrastructure.
  • You can now proceed to completing the setup without choosing a folder.
  • On the last step of the setup, in the Machine status section, we no longer display the number of machines associated to the selected template.

Retrieving jobs from the read-only replica

Jobs data is now retrieved from the Orchestrator read-only replica, which is used for ensuring uninterrupted performance.

Bug fixes

The Monitoring page displayed the status of Automation Cloud Robot - Serverless machines. This no longer occurs.

Displaying queue transaction details as a side panel

Queue transaction details are now displayed in a side panel, adjacent to the transactions list. This means that you can now benefit from:
  • A better outlook - All the details of a transaction are available in a side-by-side view.
  • More screen space - The side panel can be resized or expanded to a full-sized window for enhanced visibility.
  • Efficient navigation - Navigation between the details corresponding to several transactions happens by simply clicking anywhere on a transaction row. This allows you to easily move through the list while also maintaining focus.
