Runtime configuration files

Runtime configuration file management

Pega Robot Manager™ allows you to manage Runtime configuration files from the Pega Robot Manager portal. You can customize the Runtime configuration file options for both attended and unattended robots. You can also assign a specific Runtime configuration file to a department, work group, user, or robot. After you have assign a Runtime configuration file, a new file is deployed when the Runtime system starts. The Runtime configuration file manages the following settings:

robot server icon
Connectivity to the associated servers
log file icon
General log file categories
runtime settings icon
General run-time application settings 
diagnostic settings
Diagnostics settings
Note: After Pega Robot Runtime connects to Pega Robot Manager, the Runtime configuration in Pega Robot Manager overwrites the Runtime configuration file where Pega Robot Runtime is installed.

Runtime configuration file inheritance

When you create a new Pega Robot Manager application, the master Runtime configuration file version is the default Runtime configuration file. Pega Robot Manager allows for use of multiple Runtime configuration files within one application scope. When you create a new configuration file, the system decides which Runtime configuration file to apply by using the following criteria:

For attended robotic process automation (RPA) users:

  1. Direct assignment to the user
  2. Direct assignment to the immediate parent department
  3. If there is no direct assignment to the user's parent department, then direct assignment to its immediate parent, and so on until the top level department in the hierarchy is reached
  4. Default setting assigned to the user’s application
  5. The master Runtime configuration file provided with Pega Robot Manager


For unattended robotic process automation (RPA) users:

  1. Direct assignment to the robot
  2. Direct assignment to the work group
  3. Default setting assigned to the robot’s application
  4. The master Runtime config file provided with Pega Robot Manager
Note: The Runtime configuration file assignment occurs in order of precedence. If a condition is true, all subsequent criteria are ignored.
