You can perform background processing in Relativity by developing custom agents. Because these agents perform background work, they don't interfere with user activities performed through the Relativity UI. These agents aren't event driven so they have no dependency on user activity.
Note: Upcoming changes to RelativityOne could affect how existing agents operate. Please see the Agent migration checklist for more information.
Additionally, you can implement agents as managers that monitor tasks or workers that perform specific jobs in your environment. You can develop custom agents to perform their background processes at configurable intervals. For example, Relativity uses agents to OCR documents.
