Default dynamic system settings for Pega Robot Manager


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

While Pega Robot Manager runs, you can change the dynamic system settings data instances that are related to robotic operations in your application to answer your specific business needs.

Setting Name Default Value Additional information
pegarobotics/ServiceOperatorHeartbeatInterval 30 (seconds) Defines how often the RPA service sends the heartbeat signal to Pega Robot Manager. The lack of a heartbeat signal within the specified interval means that the RPA Service is not running, and that administrative actions such as starting or terminating a robot are unavailable in Pega Robot Manager.
pegarobotics/TimeoutIntervalForRobotCommandToBeCompleted 60 (seconds) Together with pegarobotics/ServiceOperatorHeartbeatInterval this setting determines the timeout interval for START commands that you issue to robots.
pegarobotics/HeartbeatInterval 30 (seconds) Determines how often robots provide their health status to Pega Robot Manager through heartbeat messages. A robot receives the STOP command only at the time of the next heartbeat message. For more information, see Configuring robot intervals.
pegarobotics/RuntimeEvaluationTimeInterval 60 (minutes) Indicates the time period for evaluating whether a robot is in the HEALTHY, FAILING, or UNDERPERFORMING state. For more information, see Configuring robot intervals.
pegarobotics/NotificationAlertInterval 30 (minutes) Prevents the system from sending repeated notifications of the same type. For more information, see:
pegarobotics/AutoBalancerChunkInterval 60 (minutes) Determines the length of the period in which Pega Robot Manager evaluates the expected workload in a work group by looking at how many open assignments will reach their SLA deadlines. For more information, see Estimating the workload across work groups.
pegarobotics/RobotNotReadyThreshold 10 (minutes) Indicates how long a robot can remain in the APPLICATION NOT READY state before Pega Robot Manager stops the robot. For more information, see:
pegarobotics/UnderPerformingBotsExpiryInterval 60 (minutes) Prevents underperforming robots from performing additional assignments within the current work group until the interval expires. For more information, see Handling underperforming robots.
pegarobotics/WorkgroupSpecifiedInPayloadTakesPrecedence false Determines whether the work group for a newly provisioned robot is determined by the Pega Robot Runtime. If false, it is Pega Robot Manager that determines the work group registration sequence by using decision tables. For more information, see Robot registration and work group assignment for RPA (unattended) robots.
pegarobotics/defaultTimezoneForRMReporting GMT The default time zone for converting the payload date and time.
pegarobotics/AutomationPackageRepository empty The repository that stores automation packages. This repository can be a local Pega Package Server or a custom repository that Pega Robot Manager controls. For more information, see:
pegarobotics/MaxStartsIssuedPerScheduleAction 4 Prevents Pega Robot Manager from continually attempting to restart a robot. Pega Robot Manager tries to start a robot only if the number of start attempts is less than the value of this setting.
pegarobotics/AllowedWaitTimeForRobotRegistration 120 (seconds) Specifies the maximum expected time for the RPA Service to start Pega Robot Runtime. This setting value includes the time needed to unlock the remote machine and retrieve the package assignment only.
pegarobotics/DefaultTimeoutForRoboticAutomationService 30 (seconds) When unattended automations are invoked through Data Pages, a REST service starts in Pega Robot Manager. If this REST service does not acknowledge the invocation within the time period that this setting specifies, the Data Page times out. You can also configure the Data Page and set a time period defining how long the automation can take. For more information, see Data pages.
pegarobotics/EnableDefaultKerberosAuthenticationForRobotManager true When true, the custom authentication service attempts to authenticate the incoming ticket by using the default SPNEGO lib/configurations for Pega Robot Manager.
pegarobotics/DefaultAuthenticationType Basic Determines the authentication method for users (other than Runtime users) that you add through Pega Robot Manager. You can use the following values:
  • Basic
  • SSO
pegarobotics/DefaultAuthenticationTypeForRuntimeOnlyUser SSO Determines the authentication method for Runtime users that you add through Pega Robot Manager. You can use the following values:
  • Basic
  • SSO
pegarobotics/RobotManagerHostDomain http://localhost:8080/prweb Indicates the host domain of Pega Robot Manager when the application that invokes automations (for example, through an RDA data page) and Pega Robot Manager reside within separate system instances. For more information, see Robotic desktop automation as a data page source.
pegarobotics/RoboticAutomationRequestorProfile RoboticAutomationRequestorProfile The authentication profile for connecting to the Pega Robot Manager host server by applications that use robotic automations to populate a data page. For more information, see Robotic desktop automation as a data page source.
pegarobotics/runtime/DesktopRoboticsURL The URL to invoke robotic automations. If you do not specify the protocol (HTTP or HTTPS), the default protocol is HTTPS, for example,
pegarobotics/WorkPollingInterval 30 (seconds) Deprecated. The frequency with which active robots request new assignments. Starting from Pega Robot Manager 8.5.1, set the polling interval at the work group level. For more information, see Configuring how often robots request assignments.

  • Configuring Pega Robot Manager

    Pega Robot Manager allows you to manage your RPA robots; start, stop, terminate and schedule them. You can configure it to suit the needs of your organization. You can also create and view reports on robot health, exceptions and usage data.
