OneCloud GroundRunners are execution agents that perform integration and automation tasks on remote computing environments that run under Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris (Unix) environments.
The first step to configure a GroundRunner is to download the installer from the OneCloud application website. OneCloud users with the role of administrator can navigate to the administrative area of OneCloud. Follow the path Admin > Runners > Downloads.
- In order to take full advantage of the features of the OneCloud GroundRunner, we require Java (version 8 or higher) to be installed. Click here to download Java from Oracle's website.
Note: When installing Java, you may encounter the terms JDK and JRE. Only the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) is required in order to use the GroundRunner.

From the Downloads page, you can select the right GroundRunner based upon your operating environment. A company token is required to set-up the GroudRunner and you can find your autogenerated company token on the Downloads page.
