Mapping agents to node types

To effectively use node classifications, you must map agents to node types. When you start a node with a specific node type, the node runs only the agents that are associated with that node type.

To map agents to node types in an open ruleset, complete the following steps:

  1. Open an agent rule form by performing the following actions:
    1. In the navigation panel, click Records > SysAdmin > Agents.
    2. Click the name of an agent in the list to open its rule form.
  2. On the Schedule tab, click the Gear icon in the Associated with Node type column to open the condition builder for the agent.
  3. Select the check box next to each node type that you want to map to the agent. The agent runs for all the nodes that are started with the node type or types that you select. Fom more information, see Pega node types
    Note: If you specify configurable node types at a startup, you can see only these configurable node types in the list.
    Note: By default, an agent is mapped to the background node type.
  4. Optional: Clear the check box next to each node type that you no longer want to be associated with the agent.
  5. Click Submit.
  6. Ensure that the Enabled check box that corresponds to the agent that you want to map to the node type is selected.
  7. Click Save.
    Note: The agent schedule is created during the node startup, if it does not exist.
