Check out the new features and enhancements for PagerDuty Process Automation, PagerDuty Runbook Automation, and Rundeck Community included in this release. With the release of PagerDuty Runbook Automation 4.11.0 and PagerDuty Process Automation 4.11.0, we are introducing a new architecture for orchestrating workflows across cloud and hybrid environments through the Enterprise Runners. In addition, this release includes two new Plugin Suites to simplify configuration of plugins and the release of an official Docker image for the Runner.


The new architecture for Runnersopen in new window offers flexibility to create powerful and resilient cross-environment jobs. The new architecture separates workflow orchestration from task execution. It offers next- generation remote Runners that are now packaged with common plugins such as Ansible, Docker, and Kubernetes that execute locally within the private network. The new architecture now allows job authors to develop automated jobs that incorporate multiple environments, and job authors have the flexibility to specify where and how Runners participate in executing distributed job steps.

This release includes new Plugin Suites for ServiceNow and Jira. As a reminder, Plugin Suites streamline the configuration of plugins. Now users can update plugin configurations from a single location (previously this had to be done in multiple locations). In addition, this release includes an official container image for the Runner.

  • The new ServiceNow Plugin Suite has a Node Source and many job steps to help pull in nodes from your CMDB and execute automation back into tables within ServiceNow. The ServiceNow Plugin Suite can be configured on a per-project basis or for the entire system. Learn more.

  • An official Docker container image for the Runner has been published and is available from Dockerhubopen in new window. The Runner allows users to execute commands, scripts and Job steps within their remote environments using a secure (outbound-only HTTPS) architecture. With a container-version of the Runner, users can more easily deploy, maintain and scale their Runners - as well as deploy them into their containerized environments for more native automation.
