How do Robot Runtime and Robot Manager work together?
Pega Robot Manager™ manages the work performed by the various installations of Robot Runtime that you have in your Robotic Process Automation (RPA) implementation. For example, this allows you to batch process a large volume of work assignments by using unattended robots with your Pega Platform™ application. Each robot belongs to a work group that has an assigned automation package. Automation packages are collections of automations that have been written for your RPA robots.
When a robot logs in to Pega Platform, it registers itself into a defined work group, retrieves the automation package that is assigned to that work group, loads it, and becomes ready to receive work assignments. When a robot is ready to work, it continuously fetches assignments from shared assignment types within a specified work group, and runs the automations required to complete the assignment.
