New Action Center released for On-Premise Deployments

Action Center standalone user interface outside of Orchestrator, tailor built for business users to trigger automations as well as handle tasks created by Robots is now available for on-premise deployments.

Action Center can be installed on a separate server or same server as Orchestrator (in the latter case, allocate a separate port than the port used by Orchestrator). The authentication and authorization aspects are managed through a corresponding Identity server instance and Orchestrator instance as provided during Action Center installation procedure.

Version and release: Action Center versioned as v20.10, will be an LTS release in the year 2020

Compatibility with Orchestrator : Customers who have been using ‘Actions’ within Orchestrator does not have to perform any additional steps than installing Action Center pointing to an existing Orchestrator instance (after upgrading to 20.10). All the existing actions will be reflected to end users in the new Action Center portal as per the access control defined in a corresponding Orchestrator tenant.

Actions user interface within Orchestrator will continue to be supported until the next future on-premise release. However, it is highly recommended to route your users to new Action Center interface for better user experience and for all the net new features in future .
