What is Automation Manager

Automation Manager automation automation policies automation checklist

Automation Manager enables you to eliminate repetitive tasks across your customer base by creating repeatable processes using a visual "drag and drop" scripting interface.

Policy files larger than 10MB cannot be uploaded through the Automation Manager Designer.
Policy files larger than 20MB cannot be uploaded through Ncentral.

If you try to run two policies containing SSH objects at the same time, then unexpected errors can occur. For example, the first policy can send commands in the SSH session created by the second policy. These errors occur because a class which handles the SSH connection is static.

If you have a number of tasks that you need to perform on a regular basis, you roll up these tasks into a "policy" (an Automation Manager Policy, or AMP) using Automation Manager, set up the schedule for this policy in MSP N-central, and then report back the details and status to your customers.

Assembling an Automation Manager Policy draws on the Automation Objects (a set of actions or tasks) library from the following categories:
