These requests stayed in pending untill Automation role at some additional node was initiated.
Is there relation to some other role / worker? As experience says requests stays in queue “somewhere else” even when automation is enabled on defined / designed nodes. Any advice?
P.S. even stayed in “PENDING” when automation task initiated using
$evm.execute('create_automation_request', options, 'admin', auto_approve) with defined zone that have enabled automation within that zone
