Management Console

Overview

The Management Console is the feature of Automation Server you use to administer Production or Test environments and perform maintenance activities such as following up Scheduled jobs, changing the SMTP Server for notifications, setting execution traces, reviewing connection parameters configured for integrations with external systems, and managing licenses and clustering in your Production environment, amongst others).

The Management Console is installed with Automation Server so you can manage projects in Production environments, but, is also installed with Bizagi Studio so you can manage projects in Development and Test environments.

Working Time Schema: to access this option right-click the Organization icon and select Working Time Schema. A wizard displays where you can manage schedules. You can edit other Organization features in the Bizagi Studio and then deployed changes to production.

User groups: Use the Management Console to include users in or exclude them from groups, by clicking the Properties option at the top.

If new user groups are needed, or existing ones need to be changed, manage them in the Bizagi Studio and then deploy them.

 

Organization

 

Changes in this module in the Production environment will not be persisted in the Development environment. We recommend that you perform changes in both environments to keep them synchronized.

 

Security

This module presents options to manage the Authentication, Authorization and LDAP configurations.

In a first deployment, the configuration of these options will be taken to Production. After that, they will be in read-only mode in the Development environment.

 

Perform authentication and LDAP configuration changes separately for each environment after the first deployment.

Perform required changes for Authorization options in the Development environment and then deploy them to Production.

This module is presented only in a Production environment.

It lets you manage nodes configuration for a clustered-Production environment, or move your current Production server.
