How can I use ARA runbooks from a non-ARA context?

    Hello,

    I'm trying to use ARA runbooks (those in RUNBOOKS/UC4_ARA/RELEASE_MANAGER) from a general workflow but I have problems figuring out how to use them especially when it comes to agent assignment.

    If I consider say UC4_RF.UC_RM.PROPERTY_GET I notice three promptsets:
    UC4_RP.UC_RM.PROPERTY_GET
    UC4_RP.UC_ARA.RM_CONNECTION_SETTINGS
    UC4_RP.UC_ARA.OVERWRITE_AGENT
    of which only the latter has a setting relating to agents: Overwrite Agent, but when looking at the implementation (UC4_SL.JOBI.PREPARE_JOB) it seems to be intented for something else.

    So in short, how am I supposed to be able to assign an agent to those runbooks. Currently it just hangs waiting for agent '<WIN>' and/or '<UNIX>'
    Maybe you just cannot use ARA runbooks in a non-ARA context?

    Thanks in advance!

    NB: I'm using AE 10.0.2+hf.1

    It seems you can actually achieve what I wanted using the UC4_RP.UC_ARA.OVERWRITE_AGENT promptset only for some reason unknown to me the include script HEADER.WINDOWS.USER.PRE was modified in my installation in a way not allowing this.
