Processes are automated tasks that run on agents.

There are three types of processes:

Processes are lists of steps and connections between those steps. Each step is an individual command that runs on a target computer. Steps can manipulate files, run system commands, download files, and run programs. Plug-ins contribute most of these steps; plug-ins are available that work with many different types of software. For information about steps that are provided by plug-ins, see the documentation for the individual plug-in on HCL® developerWorks®: HCL UrbanCode™ Deploy Plug-ins.

You use the process editor to work with processes. See Editing processes.

Each time you request a process, the server keeps a log of information about the process and the individual logs from each step. To download these logs, open the process request and click Download All Logs.
