I am in the process of installed Automate Enterprise V11. One of the checks that we put in our old scheduling software was a check on currently running jobs. If the jobs ran longer than the average minutes + 10%, an email was sent out to notify that a possible issue is happening. I see the AMCurrentWorkflow dataset object but it does not have a start time or currently run time. Any suggestions?

It's possible to use the API to query for deviations. You can use PoshBPA to query the API easily:

Connect-BPAServer myserver -Port 9708
Invoke-BPARestMethod -Resource "metrics/deviations/list?deviation_percentage=10&deviation_direction=ABOVE"

(9708 is the default port for the API in v11, you may need to change this if you're using a different port.)

It's not something that would run as part of the workflows you want to monitor. You would need to set it up as a separate workflow that monitors for any deviations. You could customize the API call to only return deviations during a certain time frame, or for a certain folder. Here's the API documentation on how to use the call: http://cloud.networkautomation..._RESTful_API.html#185

Since you're using v11, you could also use the built in HTTP GET and JSON Decode actions to accomplish the same thing, without needing to use PowerShell and PoshBPA.
