Configurations act as variables into which different information can be substituted as needed. A package can contain one or more configurations, which are defined on the automation by the Pega Robot Studio developer.
For example, an automation developer builds an automation that retrieves parcel delivery information from an intranet website. A user must enter a tracking number in the website to retrieve parcel information.
For performance purposes, two sites are maintained on the intranet website—one for the East Coast of the United States, and one for the West Coast, with separate URLs for each site. The automation developer can create two configurations for the automation package, with one for the East Coast and one for the West Coast. Depending on which package configuration is used, when the automation runs, it loads either the East Coast or West Coast website URL.
In Pega Robot Manager, when you assign a package, you can assign the package configuration for the East Coast website to East Coast users and the package configuration for the West Coast website to West Coast users.
- Automation packages
After you build an automation, you can publish automation packages to a Package Server and then to Pega Robot Manager, which displays all the available packages that developers can publish.
