Neurons Bots homepage
The Ivanti Neurons Bots homepage provides an overall view of all Neurons Bots.
The grid displays the following details for all bots:
The bot requires an action. The action required prevents the bot from running. Such as, a stage has been disabled.
The bot has warnings. The warnings do not prevent the bot from running, but does prevent any edits from being saved and published. Such as, a stage has been deprecated.
If a bot has both warnings and actions required then only the action icon displays in the column.
- Name & Description: The name and description given to the bot when created in the Bot editor. You can select to rename or edit the description from the Actions menu. Click on a bot name to display the Neurons Bots results page.
- Trigger Type: The bot trigger type; Schedule or Custom Action. Learn more about Triggers.
- Status: The status of the bot:
- Draft Inactive: The bot is a draft version that has not been published. The bot cannot be run.
- Inactive: The bot has been published but not made active. The bot cannot be run.
- Active: The bot has been published and has been made active. The bot can be run.
The state indicates whether the bot can be run or not, the bot must be set to active to be invoked either by a Schedule or Custom Action. To do this go to the Bot editor > Trigger settings > Trigger status and set the toggle to Active. Learn more about Trigger settings.
- Trigger count: The number of times the bot has been triggered.

If you have previously created workflows in Neurons (Feature) before the introduction of Neurons Bots, you have the option to import them.
You can only import one Neuron at a time, because each stage needs to be converted to the equivalent stage in Neurons Bots and may need some settings updated. If this is the case, you will receive a message to inform you of which stages need updating and why.
- Navigate to Neurons Bots in the Neurons platform menu. The Neurons Bots homepage displays.
