Bulk Set Orchestrator Max Policy Requests

In orchestrator there is a concept of ‘Max Policy Requests’ per Runbook that you create. The idea is to allow you to control how many instances can be ‘inside’ any given Runbook at one time. There are many reasons to set this value to different values or to leave it to the default of 1. The purpose of this post however is not to discuss the ‘why’ of this setting, rather to discuss a way we have developed internally for setting this in bulk. We have developed an internal naming convention for our Runbooks and our Folders that makes it obvious what this setting is set to for all Runbooks. We end our Folder and Runbook names with “- MP:NUMBER”. The MP here stands for Max Policy.

Setting from a Runbook in the Disable in AD folder – Defaults to 20

Setting from a Runbook in the Disable in AD folder – Defaults to 5

Setting from a Runbook in the Disable in AD SCOM – Automated Process does not change value

How to use the automated process?

This functionality has been built into the Parse Orchestrator Export Tool (available at https://scorch.codeplex.com/releases/view/104915)

And into the Orchestrator Administration Integration Pack (Available at https://scorch.codeplex.com/releases/92063)

Enjoy!
