Robolytix is the key online analytic and monitoring tool for Robotic Process Automation using Sonar technology to evaluate, audit, monitor and improve performance of robots operating on any application or RPA platform. This tutorial will guide you to analyze you processes in WorkFusion.
WorkFusion is combination of a software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud computing platform with process designer, that enables you to automate, optimize, and manage any repetitive business process using one intuitive interface. WorkFusion can be used to fill data gaps, manage seasonal spikes, and source "long tail" announcements securely. WorkFusion does this by combining crowdsourcing with artificial intelligence. The company has made deals with freelance labor markets around the world to take care of the business processes that corporations want to outsource.
To use Robolytix with WorkFusion, it is necessary to have a Robolytix account. If you do not have one, you can create the account at Robolytix.com and make basic settings using the onboarding wizard.
We have prepared script containing Robolytix Sonar action. This Robolytix Sonar script is written in Java programming language and you can use it as custom action in WofkFusion Studio.
To connect your Robolytix account to WorkFusion, you must provide access to processes in your account. In WorkFusion, the best way to do it is by using variables. Create three following variables in Recorder Variables window:
Now create process in Robolytix and set value of robolytix_processid to the process GUID. It is located in Settings ->Process -> General tab. You can create new process in Robolytix by following detailed guide Setting up processes in Robolytix.
Keep default value of robolytix_runid empty. The first Sonar in process will set its value.
Process monitoring is performing by using Sonar checkpoints. The Sonars are at the beginning of the process, at all ends of the process, and at main branches in the process. Each Sonar embedded in the process contains the following settings:
Now you can add Sonars to your processes. Each Sonar is defined by its name and type. At the begining of the custom action is located definition of two variables:
// Sonar name - describe current action in process String ROBOLYTIX_NAME = "Process start"; // Type of Sonar - select from values "start" | "continuous" | "end" | "error" String ROBOLYTIX_TYPE = "start";
First step is to add Sonar with type start to the beginning of the process. Set field Name properly with clear description and choose your process in Robolytix. You can create new process in Robolytix by following detailed guide Setting up processes in Robolytix.
Second step is to mark end of the process. Add Sonar with ROBOLYTIX_TYPE variable value end and set ROBOLYTIX_NAME variable value.
Now you can add as many Sonars as you want. Good practice is to add Sonar to each important branch and each big loop in you process. Use Sonar type common, or type error for handling errors.
After proper process execution go to Robolytix platform and check process statistics. It is possible to show all recent messages sent to specified process. Go to Settings -> Processes menu and select list of process messages.
When you have any problems with implementation look at the Robolytix Demo task. There is also Robolytix Support Forum for following questions.
