Recently I have been trying to schedule processes to run after one another using the Control Tower scheduler.
This appeared to work initially; however, at some point in time I attempted to schedule three tasks after one another and the whole thing stalled. Thinking that something had gone wrong, I figured that the process had simply failed; however I couldn’t find that out easily because there seems to be no clear audit trail when scheduling processes as opposed to running them directly as a business process.
After ‘deleting’ the business processes from the schedule panel and rebooting my PC, I assumed that said processes had now been terminated and deleted from the system. However, when I started RPA Express again the processes were suddenly running, which suggests to me that these schedules are like requests to a server - once sent they cannot be retrieved, or can they?
- Is there an accessible audit trail for processes ran in the scheduler?
- Can I ‘terminate’ a process once scheduled and ‘started’? There only seems to be a ‘pause’ option and no other way to actually ‘stop’ the process.
- Why did I encounter the aforementioned incident, where the three tasks ran about an hour after I had originally scheduled them?
If I could get answers to these questions I’d be extremely grateful.
Thank you very much.
