Each of these engines has its own configuration settings. These engines launch robotic worker processes to perform the work. All date/times are stored within the database as UTC and displayed based on local timezone of the user. 

Note: Engine runtime data are in ISO + UTC format. 

The pulse action animation indicates the service is running and the play graphic indicates the service to be started manually by FlowWright Admin.

 

Settings Cache

What's this cache for?

To improve the performance of the application, FlowWright caches some of the configuration information. Any changes to the configuration will automatically clear the cache and will rebuild itself.  The contents of the cache can be downloaded or cleared using the buttons. 

How often should we clear the cache?

We advise not to clear the cache unless it’s required - for e.g. when the process step does not reflect the new changes updated through the patch release.    

Any performance issues on the user side?

The settings cache is used when the application runs for the first time. As such, there are no performance issues on the user side. 

 

Master Script (for Form Widgets)

We advise to update the master scripts file once, after every patch release update. The event scripts configured for form control stays updated by this action. 

 

Process Request Queue

The request queue displays a summary graph based on the status of engine alerts.  

Click on the “View Engine Alerts” display a list of engine alerts:

The engine alerts can be filtered by type and status.

Use the Clear menu to remove engine alerts as required. 

 

Restart Application

Restarts the IIS web service and relaunches the FlowWright web application. 

An alert notification confirms the application is restarted and the user should exit the browser tab and login to application again.
