Runbook types

Transfer your procedure based documentation to manual runbooks. Then add automation and continue with semi-automated runbooks or fully automated runbooks.

IBM® Runbook Automation supports three different types of runbooks:
Manual runbooks
Steps describe the exact procedure that an operator must follow. The operator uses standard tools, which can be accessed from their working environment.
Semi-automated runbooks
Each step describes exactly what an operator must do. Additionally, the operator can run an automated task on a target system.
Fully automated runbooks
The runbook runs automatically without operator interaction.
