Robot registration and work group assignment

Pega Robot Manager supports both RPA Service-assisted robots and stand-alone robots. RPA Service-assisted robots can be scheduled, started, stopped, terminated, and moved between work groups from the Pega Robot Manager interface. A stand-alone robot can be stopped from the Pega Robot Manager interface, but it cannot be scheduled, started, or terminated.

Every robot must successfully register with Pega Robot Manager before it can run automations. The registration process is performed by an administrative operator that has an appropriate access role. During registration, the robot is assigned into a base work group based on the configuration request of the robot or by the configuration of decision tables. A successful registration assigns the robot to the correct base work group with the appropriate access groups and roles.

If you have multiple work groups, and you want to move robots between them either manually or by using a schedule, you need to define a list of eligible work groups that are mapped to an administrative operator that is used to register the robots.

Creating an administrative operator

To start registration, robots use a shared set of credentials. These credentials are for an operator that is sometimes called the administrative operator or registration operatior. These credentials are used only to establish an initial connection with Pega Robot Manager.

  1. Create a new operator record in Designer Studio:
    1. Click +Create > Organization > OperatorID.
    2. Enter a short description and identifier, and click Create and Open.
    3. Enter the details of the administrative operator.
    4. In the Applicationaccess section of Profile tab, add an access group that includes the PegaRULES:RoboticAdministrator, PegaRoboticAutomationConsole:RobotRegistrator, and PegaRULES:PegaAPI access roles.

      Note: The combination of these roles is necessary and sufficient to register robots and RPA Service operators.

    5. Click Save.

You can also refer to the BankingAdministrator operator that is included in the BankerPro sample application layer.

Registering an RPA Service-assisted robot

The RPA Service is a Windows service for monitoring and controlling a robot from Pega Robot Manager. It must be installed and running on the same machine as the Robot Runtime. For more information, see Installing the Robotic Process Automation Scheduling service.

The RPA Service and its associated robot register in Pega Robot Manager by using the administrative credentials. When an RPA Service-assisted robot is started for the first time, it registers into a work group that is based on its configuration request or based on the configuration of your Pega application. This work group becomes the base work group of that robot and enables you to move the robot between work group either manually or by using a schedule. When an RPA Service-assisted robot is stopped and then started again, it is registered into the same work group that it was assigned to, whether this work group was its base group or not.

Registering a stand-alone robot

A stand-alone robot registers with Pega Robot Manager by using the administrative credentials. This type of robot cannot be started, moved, or scheduled from the Pega Robot Manager interface. A successful registration will result in the robot being assigned into the correct work group with the appropriate access groups and roles.

Configuring the work group assignment sequence

A robot can request to join a specific work group. If a specific work group is not specified by the robot, Pega Robot Manager attempts to find a work group that the robot should join from the pyGetWorkGroupByRobotID and pyGetWorkGroupForRobotByRequestorOperatorID decision tables.

You can configure Pega Robot Manager so that the specific method of work group registration takes precedence over the others; if one method does not work, then other methods are applied.

  1. In Designer Studio, click Records > SysAdmin > Dynamic System Settings.
  2. Click the record with the pegarobotics Owning Ruleset and WorkgroupSpecifiedInPayloadTakesPrecedence Setting Purpose.
  3. On the Settings tab, in the Value field, enter one of the following values:
    • true: Use this setting if you have configured your robots to request a work group in their registration requests. Pega Robot Manager attempts to assign the robot to the work group that is specified in the request. However, if the registration request contains an invalid work group, Pega Robot Manager attempts to assign the robot to a work group that is specified in the pyGetWorkGroupByRobotID decision table. If this fails, it attempts to assign the robot to a work group that is specified in the pyGetWorkGroupForRobotByRequestorOperatorID decision table.
    • false: Use this setting if you want Pega Robot Manager to automatically determine the work group for each robot. Pega Robot Manager attempts to match the robot to the work group by using pyGetWorkGroupByRobotID decision table. If the work group that is specified in that decision table is not valid, Pega Robot Manager attempts to match the administrative credentials to a valid work group by using the pyGetWorkGroupForRobotByRequestorOperatorID decision table. However, if the work group that is specified in the decision table is also not valid, Pega Robot Manager uses the work group that is specified in the registration request of the robot.
  4. Click Save.

If none of these options results in a valid work group, the robot registration fails.

Assigning to a work group by request

For more information about configuring the registration request within a robot, see the Common Configuration Settings section in the help for Pega Robotic Automation Runtime.

Assigning to a work group by using a decision table

If you want Pega Robot Manager to automatically assign each robot to a work group, you can customize one of the provided decision tables, depending on the method that you want to use. A robot can be assigned to a work group based on the user ID or the robot ID.

When robots are assigned to a work group by using a decision table, the first processed decision table is pyGetWorkGroupByRobotID, followed by the pyGetWorkGroupForRobotByRequestorOperatorID decision table.

Configuring the pyGetWorkGroupByRobotID decision table

Use the pyGetWorkGroupByRobotID decision table to assign robots to work groups based on robot ID.

  1. In Designer Studio, click Records > Decision > Decision Table.
  2. Click the pyGetWorkGroupByRobotID decision table in the Pega-Robot-Register class and save it to your application ruleset.
  3. Add the robot IDs and their corresponding work group IDs to the decision table. For more information about decision tables, see About Decision Tables.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Set the sequence in which the system registers robots (either from within the registration request of a robot or through the decision tables) by editing the WorkgroupSpecifiedInPayloadTakesPrecedence dynamic system setting. For more information, see Configuring work group assignment sequence.

Configuring the pyGetWorkGroupForRobotByRequestorOperatorID decision table

Use the pyGetWorkGroupForRobotByRequestorOperatorID decision table to map the user credentials to work groups in your application. For example, if you use Kerberos authentication, your decision table maps the Microsoft Windows user principal name (UPN) from a valid Kerberos ticket to a work group in your system. All robots registered using these credentials will be assigned to the work group specified in the decision table.

  1. In Designer Studio, click Records > Decision > Decision Tree.
  2. Click the pyGetWorGroupForRobotByRequestorOperatorID decision table in the Pega-Robot-Register class and save it to your application ruleset.
  3. Add the user names and their corresponding work group IDs to the decision table. For example, for Kerberos authentication, add the user principal names (UPNs) and their corresponding work groups to the decision table. For more information about decision tables, see About Decision Tables.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Set the sequence in which the system registers robots (either from within the registration request of a robot or through the decision tables) by editing WorkgroupSpecifiedInPayloadTakesPrecedence dynamic system setting. For more information, see Configuring work group assignment sequence.

Defining work groups that a robot can move to

To move robots between work groups either manually or by using a schedule, you need to define a list of eligible work groups for each administrative operator that registered the robots. All the robots that were registered by the same administrative operator can move to those work groups.

  1. In Designer Studio, click Records > Decision > Decision Table.
  2. Click the pyGetCandidateWorkGroupListByDispatchOperator decision table in the Pega-Robot-Register class and save it to your application ruleset.
  3. For each administrative operator, provide a comma-separated list of candidate work group IDs. All robots registered by a specific operator can be moved between the specified candidate work groups. The move command can be entered by Pega Robot Manager users or by a schedule.
    The list of candidate work groups must contain ID of robot's base work group, which is the work group where the robot was assigned when it was first registered.
    For more information, see About Decision Tables.
  4. Click Save.

Assigning an access group to a robot

After the robot registration sequence determines a valid work group for a robot, Pega Robot Manager must also identify an access group to which to map the work group. You can customize the pyGetAccessGroupForRobotByWorkGroup decision table to map a valid work group to an access group. Each access group can have different access roles so that you can customize the access rights of each robot in your application. If the decision table does not map a work group to a valid access group, robot registration fails.

You can view the decision table in the BankerPro application layer for an example of how to customize the access group.

Enabling scheduling of robots

The ProcessRobotScheduleActions agent checks whether a schedule is set on a robot and runs the defined schedule.

Enable this agent by completing the following steps:

  1. Click Records > Sys Admin > Agent Schedule.
  2. Select the Pega-Robotic-AutomationPackageManagement instance on the node where you want to enable the ProcessRobotScheduleActions agent.

For more information, see Access Group data instances.

You can also create an access role and add privileges to it. For more information, see Access roles.

Configuring authentication for new users

Configure authentication requirements for user roles before creating users in Pega Robot Manager. By default, Pega Robotic Automation Runtime users authenticate with Pega Robot Manager using single sign-on authentication; users with all other roles authenticate using basic authentication. Pega Robot Manager supports basic authentication and single sign-on (SSO) using either OAuth 2.0 with SAML bearer assertion or Kerberos.

When you create user accounts in Pega Robot Manager, the authentication method that is assigned to each user is determined by their specified role and the dynamic system setting that is associated with the specified role.

  1. In Designer Studio, click Records > Sysadmin > Dynamic System Settings.
  2. To specify the authentication that is used for the AutomationPackageManagement:RuntimeUser role:
    1. Click the PegaRoboticAutomationManagement owning ruleset that has the pegarobotics/DefaultAuthenticationTypeRuntimeOnlyUser Setting Purpose value.
    2. In the Value field, enter SSO or Basic.
    3. Save the rule form.
  3. To specify the authentication for all other roles:
    1. Click the PegaRoboticAutomationManagement owning ruleset that has the pegarobotics/DefaultAuthenticationType Setting Purpose value.
    2. In the Value field, enter SSO or Basic.
    3. Save the rule form.

For information on configuring single sign-on, see Configuring authentication for Pega Robot Manager 6.

Configuring notifications

To see notification preferences, you must define at least one case type.

In case of unexpected behavior or errors, Pega Robot Manager users can be notified by webgadget and email. To take advantage of this feature, perform the following steps:

  1. Configure an email account to send the notifications. For more information, see Creating an email account.
  2. Set the Public Link URL to the following format: http://<host>/prweb/PRServlet. For more information, see System Settings – Resource URLs tab.
  3. Optional: Customize the default notification thresholds:
    1. In Designer Studio, click Records > Decision > Decision Table.
    2. Click the pyGetThresholdByNotificationType decision table in the Pega-Robot-Register class and save it to your application ruleset.
    3. Modify the default values of relevant notification types:
      • pyNotifyAutomationExceedsExecution - notification is triggered when the time it took a robot to complete the automation was longer by the specified percentage than the value specified on the originating workbasket. Default value: 30.
      • pyRobotQueueExceedingCapacity - notification is triggered when pending items in any robotic work queue reaches the specified percentage of capacity. Default value: 80.
      • pyNotifyWorkQueueHasPastSLA - notification is triggered when an assignment in a robotic queue reaches a specific percentage of the SLA deadline. Default value: 80.
      • pyNotifyRobotFailuresReachThreshold - notification is triggered when a robot exceeds its predetermined failure count threshold. Default value: 80.
    4. Modify the labels in the user interface so that they match the customized values.

Configuring the pyCompleteAutomation flow action

In Pega Robot Manager, the pyCompleteAutomation is marked as an Extension. Its default behavior is to consider the automation status as "Complete" and move the flow to the next stage of the case life cycle. It is strongly recommended to customize the default behavior of pyCompleteAutomation flow action to better suit the needs of your organization.

Modifying dynamic system settings

The following dynamic system settings can be modified to adapt Pega Robot Manager to the specific needs of your organization.

  • AllowedWaitTimeForRobotRegistration - specifies the maximum expected time that the RPA Service should take to start up the Robot Runtime system. It includes the time to unlock the remote machine, and start the runtime process. Default value: 120 seconds
  • MaxStartsIssuedPerScheduleAction - prevents the Pega Robot Manager system from continually attempting to restart a robot that has failed to start during one Scheduled action or Otherwise event. This value will be read before attempting to start a robot. If the number of start attempts is less than the number provided, the start will be issued. Default value: 4
  • ServiceOperatorHeartbeatInterval - defines how often the RPA Service should send a heartbeat signal to Pega Robot Manager. When the RPA Service does not send a heartbeat within this interval, it is assumed to be not running. When the RPA Service is not running, UI options (like Start a robot and Terminate a robot) will not be available from the Pega Robot Manager. Default value: 45 seconds
  • TimeoutIntervalForRobotCommandToBeCompleted - determines the time-out interval for the start command issued to robots in conjunction with the RPA Service heartbeat interval. Default value: 30 seconds
