Agent Deployment Wizard

Overview

A workflow's multi-machine execution capability is made possible in part by remote task agents that interact with the server component via TCP/IP. Once deployed/installed on a remote computer, the server component can readily communicate with the agent and control its execution.

Manually installing agents on separate computers can be too cumbersome, time-consuming and lacks centralized point of control. The Agent Deployment Wizard eliminates this burden by providing users with the ability to "deploy" agents across multiple domains and remote computers from a single location, improving consistency and transparency throughout the organization.
