If two foreground processes are triggered does this error or set one job pending

We have one robot that does a foreground process (A) on a schedule, but lets say we also want it to run another foreground process (B) to work whenever things land in a queue (i.e. set up a trigger on that queue) - we don’t care if the the user of (B) has to wait sometimes for (A) if it happens to be running.

Does orchestrator:

(1) Work out that (A) is running and is foreground process, and so schedule the process (B) behind it, if its triggered … i,e. it creates a new job but in pending state.

(2) Starts a job for process (B) the moment it is triggered by an incoming queue item, but then errors that job with ‘Bot fails due to a foreground process already running’ because (A) is still running.

If (2) what is the best way to go about achieving my ambition with a single robot?

When starting two foreground processes from Orchestrator, the second job is marked as Pending and thus is queued
