Execute Task

Last Updated: Mar 8, 2023


After designing the task, you can execute tasks from two places.

  1. Design Studio: Run the tasks in Design Mode to check if it runs successfully and desired results are achieved. The tasks run on the Developer Bot.
  2. Run Tasks page: Run the tasks in Execution Mode on the cluster assigned in the node configuration. The tasks are run in execution mode in production, the load is balanced across the bots that are assigned to the Cluster.

Design Mode

  1. Click the Image description icon to execute the task using a Developer Bot.
  2. Click the Image description icon and select the Execute in Cluster option to execute the task on the cluster using an Execution Bot. To know more about Clusters click here.

During execution, the color of the nodes changes to indicate the execution state of that node.

Execution State Color of the Node Indication Example                
Neutral Grey Node is currently at rest Image description
Success Green Node executed successfully Image description
Partial Success Pear Green Node has one or more skipped iterations Image description
In Progress Blue Node is currently being executed Image description
Continue on Failure Amber Execution of this node failed and Continue on Failure is enabled for this node Image description
Failure Red Execution of this node failed Image description

Resume Execution

During the execution of Tasks with multiple nodes, you can make modifications in any node and resume execution from that node.

  1. Click the link between nodes. The Image description icon turns to Image description icon.
  2. Click the Image description icon.

Output: Displays the execution status and the values of the output variables in the current node that can be mapped to the succeeding nodes.

Run Info: Displays the information of the current node such as Run ID, Configuration, Machine details, Cluster details, time taken for the task to execute, etc.

Step Data: Displays the complete details of the steps designed inside the node, the status of each step, and the values stored in the variables. This is applicable only for specific nodes, for example, UI nodes.

Formatted Output: Displays if any output variable is in the table format.

The Iterations are listed in the left panel. You can select the iteration for which you want to view the results.

Execution Mode

The other mode of execution is Execution Mode.
You can run the tasks from the Run Tasks page on the cluster assigned in the node configuration. The tasks run in the Execution Bot and the execution results can be viewed from the Execution History page.

Click the Image description icon in the Tasks page to navigate to the Run Tasks page.
