On behalf of all teams involved, I’m excited to announce a new feature meant to improve your automation workflow, especially when dealing with queue item execution. We are always listening to your feedback, and we understand that identifying the root cause of failed transactions can be a real challenge. Therefore, on top of the existing video recording capabilities, we have just released Queue Recording.
Queue Recording is an integrated video recording feature that aims to record queue process execution on the Robot. It focuses on storing videos of failed transactions when enabled at a process level, making them easily accessible and playable within Orchestrator, when viewing transactions.
Here’s a brief overview of this feature:
Configuring Video Recording: You will have the ability to configure video recording settings for individual automations (processes), giving you control over which processes have queue transactions recorded when setting up or when editing the process.
Recording Execution: Queue Recorder will capture a video of the last minutes of each queue item execution, up to 3 minutes long, providing a visual record for improved debugging capability.
Viewing & Managing Videos: Within Orchestrator, you will be able to view and manage recorded videos related to failed transactions from the transaction details and action menu, which will greatly facilitate monitoring and debugging.
Permissions: Media Execution permission will extend to this feature as well, ensuring appropriate access and control over video recordings.
Audit: The Queue Recorder will maintain an audit trail record of video access and manual video deletion.
We believe that this new feature can significantly help in identifying the root cause of failed transactions, making monitoring and analyzing queue item execution a more efficient and effective process.
We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback. Feel free to share your comments, questions, or suggestions below!
Thanks for sharing this amazing feature. It will help a lot.
I think that a good feature to integrate with this Recording one is the possibility to link the recorded video with an external storage to prevent recorded video for deletation after 3 or 7 days (for audit purpose when it necessary. So we can decide how many days the videos will be preserved for some specific projects. )
this is a very useful feature that will enable many of us to handle item-specific execution errors more efficiently and I’m glad to have it - but I think an additional option to enable recordings on SystemExceptions only would be great. In my personal experience BusinessRuleExceptions are well defined and usually occur due to professional rather than technical reasons, so the videos are interesting, but not necessarily relevant to developers
Record all jobs stores the video at the Job level, not the queue item level.
@Adrian_Tamas these two selections should not be mutually exclusive. We should be able to select to have all jobs recorded at the job level and failed queue item videos attached to the queue item in question.
