Running a Process

Automator provides several methods by which you can run a process.

Process can be run:

NOTE: If the Config service is not available and you are using Altair licensing, Automator processes will be switched to "Limp Mode." In this mode, you can run only one process (i.e., one Standard Process and one Visual Process) every hour. Moreover, you cannot run a Visual Process that involves other Standard or Visual Processes. Limp Mode is deactivated once the Config service becomes available.

Note: You can specify multiple schedules for a process if desired.

NOTE: If a corresponding job for a process fails to run, refer to When a Job Fails to Run. You should also view the job's log file, as they may indicate why the job failed.
