Calling Robot task from Pega in a scheduled way via agent


I am trying to call a robot task in an scheduled way from Pega with an agent and I have found some problems that I have not resolved yet. I am using Pega 7.3.1. I have got a case type to call a robot task (see image1). When I create a new case work of type "RPA Example" the robot works and complete its assignment.

What I am looking for is to create one of this case work in a scheduled way. To do this I am trying to configure an agent. I have created an activity (see Image 2 and Image 3) and when it runs it seems to work.

I have two problems at this point.

- Although the activity seems to work in a dry way (see Image 4), the assignment to the robot is not working. Maybe something wrong in the activity.

- The agent that launches this activity is not working, I mean it doesn't create the case work (see image 5 about this agent)

Thank you very much because of your help

When you trace the agent, do you see it pick up your queue item and run the activity? Are there any errors?

There is an error when agent executes; I have extracted from /prsysmgmt:

Some days ago this error didn't exist. I attach the whole content in textfile.

The error is showing there isn't enough space.

Caused by: org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: ERROR: could not extend file "base/16386/29530.3": No space left on device

Yes, I agree with you but we should take into account that this error is new and it has nothing to do with my problem with the agent. When I resolve this space problem I will try to trace the agent execution and I will tell you.
