Automate: Exciting new Web UI Features towards Parity

March 13, 20233 min read

One of the biggest gripes and complaints over the years has been the lack of feature parity (and frankly extremely limited capabilities) for the CW Automate Web UI. Over the last year, we have seen a steady transition of that changing…and that process continues with the 2023.3 release.

Typically, the three biggest complains were:

  • Lack of Script Editing/Creation

  • Lack of Monitor Editing/Creation

  • Lack of Search Editing/Creation

Well, that has all now changed! Let’s take a look at some of the major feature releases over the last year that have solved the above issues. Now, keep in mind…this is in no way an exhaustive list of the other features added nor is it in great detail. We listed the overviews and links to the features.

I am excited to see where this continues to go. Plugins are really the next major step…

New features released:

  • Searches module: Computer Searches have been added to the Web Control Center to allow you to create, edit, and manage computer searches for use within key Automate workflows (group assignment, etc.).
