Paragon Automation GUI Menu Overview

The Paragon Automation GUI menu enables you to access the different Paragon Automation applications and perform tasks related to those applications. In addition, you can perform tasks that are common to the different Paragon Automation applications. The tasks that you can perform is based on the roles and access privileges (capabilities) that you’re assigned as a Paragon Automation user. For more information, see Roles Overview.

Note:

Paragon Active Assurance is not yet integrated with the Paragon Automation suite of applications. Therefore, Paragon Active Assurance features are not accessible from the Paragon Automation GUI.
