You can manually start one or multiple robots either from the global list of robots or from the list of robots in a specific work group.After a robot registers with the RPA Service, it is in standby state, which is indicated by a blue dot on its icon. In this state, a Pega Robot Runtime on the remote computer is not running. For a robot to be able to process assignments, it must be started. You cannot manually start robots that are running on a schedule.
Starting a robot is a multistage process. Each stage of the startup sequence is indicated by the progress bar of the robot. Starting a robot can take up to three minutes from when the command was entered. The robot startup time depends on the value of the heartbeat interval, package download requirements, and the time required to start and log in to the applications with which the robots interact.
