The UiPath Orchestrator Guide

Jobs Overview

The Jobs Overview page provides real-time monitoring and metrics of pending, active, and completed jobs in the current folder of your Orchestrator instance. It is accessed by clicking the Jobs Overview tab from the Jobs page.

General View

Displays information about all the existing jobs on an aggregate basis, and it allows you to check the overall health of the jobs in your system. On this page, you can isolate data per environment so that you can quickly act in the event of an error. You can also control the granularity of the displayed data, to have a more accurate overview of how your jobs are getting executed in time.
Note: A job executing a long-running process is counted as one, regardless of being fragmented or executed by different Robots.

Filters

  • Environment - enables you to filter data per environment. Only available for classic folders.
  • Include Subfolders - enables you to select if the contents of all subfolders are included. Only available for modern folders.
  • Interval - enables you to control the granularity of the data, and display either the last hour or last day (last 24 hours) of your Robots activity.

Note

Filtering impacts all widgets, unless specified otherwise in the dedicated section.

Processes Overview

Enables you to check the status of your jobs and associated processes in real time so you can assess if there are any problems that can impact the entire system. Each color block represents a specific process from your instance. Hovering over a block displays the name of the corresponding process and its containing folder. Note that it is possible to have multiple processes with the same name if each is in a different folder.The total number of processes is displayed in parentheses after the widget name.

Processes are represented with colored blocks as follows:

Color
Tooltip

Green

The process was executed successfully.

Note: If the job was executed successfully at least once, the block keeps its green color regardless of the failed executions.

Blue

The process is currently being executed.

Orange

Waiting for a Robot to connect.
The process is suspended.

Red

The process was executed with errors.

Note: The block keeps its red color if all the associated process executions fail. If the job is successfully executed at least once, the block changes to green.

Grey

The process that was never executed.

As a job's state changes, the chart gets updated and the block color changes accordingly. More information on jobs states is available here. Hovering over a block displays detailed information on the corresponding process. Clicking the block displays the corresponding detailed view page. Click the arrow at the top-left of the page to return to the general view.

Triggered Jobs States

Allows you to see the number of jobs currently being executed, awaiting execution, or being stopped so you can assess the efficiency of your system. As a job is either started or stopped, the chart gets updated accordingly. If the long-running workflows functionality is enabled, the widget also displays metrics on suspended and resumed jobs.

Filtering by Interval does not impact this widget.

Running Jobs Timeframe

Allows you to see running jobs in the selected interval broken down into specific timeframes. Starting a new job results in a job number increase for the past hour. Please note that jobs started within schedules are taken into account as well.

Completed Jobs Timeline

Allows you to see the jobs timeline in the selected interval broken down according to their final state. It enables you to have an overview of the number of jobs finished or stopped. Stopping a job causes the corresponding information here to update accordingly. As long as a job is not yet finished, it is not taken into account in this widget.

Job states are represented with colors as follows:

The errors are displayed in reverse chronological order as they occur, meaning a new error is always displayed at the top of the feed. The number of errors displayed in parentheses after the widget name is expressed according to your position within the feed and to the total number of errors. Let's say there are 453 errors in your feed. The following behavior is encountered:

After reaching the end of the feed, the total number of errors is displayed regardless of your position.

You can dismiss an error after having acknowledged it, however please take into account that multiple users might check the feed simultaneously, so we recommend carefully using the Dismiss button. A dismissed error is still taken into account in the error counter. After an error was dismissed, the name of the user who performed the action is displayed adjacently in a tooltip. Note that you need Edit permissions on Monitoring to dismiss errors. Details here.
