This course is designed for any engineers involved in the installation and configuration of the Cico Process Orchestrator component of Cisco IAC 4.0, as well as technicians tasked with extending CPO workflows to accomodate their organisations business needs.
This instructor-led, lab-based training covers the usage, programming, testing, and administration of Cisco Process Orchestrator processes, especially when used in conjunction with Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (IAC) and Cisco Prime™ Service Catalog. You will learn how to create activities and processes using the Process Editor, which provides toolbox, workflow and properties functions, as well as how to use the adapters and activities that are provided with the automation packs that are packaged with Cisco IAC. Integration with external systems, such as Cisco Prime Service Catalog is also included.
