When it comes to automate certain activity BSA has its own feature of scheduling and once scheduled it will do its job without human intervention.
since you are looking for an solution with AO in picture, its all about If AO supports an auto trigger or something related to schedule. There must be something related to this in AO.
You must have some workflow that will interact with BSA job and trigger the job in BSA end. I would suggest check If you can set some configuration that auto trigger the execution of workflow as per your requirement.
Thanks for the reply Blas P. I am aware of scheduling in AO and how to trigger a workflow in AO based on a condition.
I somehow believe AO, being so powerful, can be leveraged to do a lot more in automating patching - from the stage a patch download is needed until a system is patched. And I am fairly new to AO.
So was looking for the approach on how AO is utilized elsewhere in bigger environments, might be a workflow screenshot, process doc, something elaborate if possible.
Anyone else doing more on patching with AO? Please share you thoughts.
I does not claim much about AO. Just have little idea how AO operates. Your query may be better addressed in BAO community.
I hope below stuff will be helpful for you.
Why do you want to perform all of these actions from AO vs using the built-in blade functionality? bsa can be setup to schedule the CUJs, schedule the patching jobs, schedule the deploy jobs, etc. if you are driving this via bao instead, what benefit do you think this will provide or why do you want to drive this w/ bao ?
