Pega Robot Manager

Updated on November 29, 2022

Pega Robot Manager extends the functionality of robotic process automation (RPA), and 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. An automation package is a collection of automations that have been written for your RPA robots. When a robot logs in to Pega Platform, it registers itself into a specified work group, retrieves the automation package that is assigned to that work group, loads it, and is then ready to be started by a user, based on a schedule, or based on Auto-balancing.

When a robot is started, it continuously fetches assignments from the assignment types (work queues) within a specified work group, runs the automation that is configured for the assignment, and notifies your Pega Platform application when the assignment has been completed.

Implementing an RPA solution inside your Pega Platform application allows your workforce to focus on higher-value, customer-facing work.

Note: Pega Robot Manager 8.6.4:

  • supports Pega Robotic Automation versions 19.1.64 or later
  • requires the installation of Pega Platform 8.6.6, which includes an important security update.
