Creating on-prem system connections


The new installation process for on-prem clients is in limited availability. If you’re interested in trying it out, get in touch with us through

To execute automations in third-party applications you must establish a connection between EMS and the on-prem application. You can do this easily from the On-prem system connection page.

Before you begin

  • Make sure you have EMS Analyst rights to access Studio.

  • The on-prem clients must already be installed in your environment. Contact your EMS admin to request the installation of on-prem clients.

To create an on-prem connection

  1. In EMS, go to Studio > Automation > On-prem system connections.


    This is where you can also preview and edit existing system connections.

  2. In the On-prem system connection screen, click Set up on-prem system connections.

  3. In the pop-up, enter a unique system connection name.

  4. Select an installation package.


    This is the name of the Automation Agent which will be used to connect to the on-prem system.

  5. Select the application for which you want to create automations and click Save.

Your new system connection has been created. You can start creating your first automations with Action Flows. See Setting up Action Flows in Studio.
