Supported browsers

Supported browsers are used to access the Control Room. In the Enterprise Client, build bots with tasks that use a supported browser. Automation Anywhere Enterprise provides browser-specific plug-ins.

Plug-ins for the listed browsers are optionally installed during Control Room and Enterprise Client installation. See Dependencies for supported services.

CAUTION: Google Chrome requires reverification of permissions when the Automation Anywhere Google Chrome extension (version 11.x or later) is updated. If prompted, click Enable this item in the Google Chrome message. Alternatively, re-enable the extension through Chrome web store. Similarly, if you are deploying your Bot Runners from a master image, accept the permission from within that image.
