    Course Details


    The Cisco® Process Orchestrator 3.0 Process Design and Configuration training is an instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on course offered by Cisco High-Touch Delivery Learning Services. This course covers the usage, programming, testing, and administration of Cisco Process Orchestrator processes, especially when these are used in conjunction with Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (IAC) and Cisco Prime™ Service Catalog.


    This training teaches how to create activities and processes using the Process Editor, which provides toolbox, workflow and properties functions. It also teaches you how to use the adapters and activities that are provided with the automation packs that are packaged with Cisco IAC. The module describes how Cisco Process Orchestrator is integrated with external systems, such as Cisco Prime Service Catalog.


    Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

    • Recognize Cisco Process Orchestrator key concepts and be able to perform key design, configuration, and integration tasks including:
      • Creating and testing new processes
      • Using activities included in automation packs to configure processes
      • Using tables such as a data storage mechanism
      • Using XML and XSLT as part of web services integration
      • Initiating server and client shell scripts
    • Recognize the integration architecture between Cisco Prime Service Catalog and Cisco Process Orchestrator
    • Describe extension points in Cisco IAC 4.0 and Cisco best practices for customizing workflows
