Setting up Pega Platform to use reports in Pega Robot Manager

Updated on October 7, 2021

During the installation of Pega Robot Manager, the required Robot Manager configurations are turned on by default. As a system administrator, review the settings to ensure that your application is optimized for Elasticsearch reporting.

Pega Robot Runtime 19.1.64 or later is required for reporting.
  1. Log in to Dev Studio as a system administrator.
  2. Verify that at least one of the active nodes has a node type which contains Search or is set to Universal.
    For more information about nodes, see Assigning node types to nodes for on-premises environments.
  3. In the navigation panel of Dev Studio, click RecordsSysAdminDynamic System Settings, and confirm the values of the following Data Admin System settings:
    • indexing/useDataInstances row (owning ruleset: Pega-SearchEngine) – true.
    • reporting/searchdata/enabled (owning ruleset: Pega-Reporting) – true.
    • pegarobotics/defaultTimezoneForRMReporting (owning ruleset: Pega-Robotic-AutomationPackageManagement) – GMT.
      • The defaultTimezoneForRMReporting setting provides the preferred timezone for the Collection Interval column of daily, monthly, and yearly usage reports. Hourly reports use the time zone defined on the requestor's Operator ID record.
      • Do not modify this setting to avoid discrepancies between the hourly reports and the daily, monthly, or yearly reports.
  4. In the navigation panel of Dev Studio, click RecordsSysAdminQueue Processor, and confirm the values of the following queue processors:
    • pyBatchIndexClassesProcessor – the Enable Queue Processor switch is turned on.
