Service Agents

Service Agents run the tasks in Ouvvi, they can run across multiple machines and networks providing they can reach and authenticate with this web application.

Setup the Agents to run your Projects, Steps and Triggers in the locations where you need them.

Each configured Agent is an individual Thread in the Agent Service so the more agents configured the more work is executed in parallel.

Dependencies allow you to control Ouvvi Steps so that they only execute on a specific group of Agents. For example running a Step that accesses On Premise resources behind the corporate firewall.
