More on personal automation.

Prerequisites:

  • You or an administrator previously deployed the background process you want to execute to a folder you have access to.
  • An administrator allocated the unattended infrastructure for running jobs by adding a machine template object to the folder.

Start a job as yourself


  1. Navigate to Automations > Jobs in the folder the background process resides in.
  2. Click Start. The Start Job window is displayed.
  3. From the Process Name drop-down, select the process you want to execute.
  4. From the Account drop-down, select Run as Myself (Personal automation) to execute the job under your own identity. Note that this option is available only for background processes.
  5. Configure the other settings following the instructions provided in the Starting a job documentation.
  6. Click Start to start the job. The job is displayed as Pending on the Jobs page until a robot is available to pick it up.

  4. From the Process Name drop-down, select the process you want that trigger to launch jobs for.
