For Version 11.3.4 or later, on Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services, Auto login is supported for attended and unattended bots in locked, logged-off, or disconnected mode. This applies to single user logins. Multi-user logins are not supported for this feature.

For Automation Anywhere versions prior to Version 11.3.3:

  • Auto login cannot run bots in LOGOFF mode from cloud VMs (Azure, Amazon, Verizon etc).
  • Auto login cannot run bots in LOGOFF & Disconnect mode from a Citrix system or Terminal server (multi-user session systems).
  • Auto login cannot run the Legal Disclaimer from bots when the Remote Desktop Check Option is selected in the Control Room.
  • Auto Login runs LOGOFF on Windows Server 2016 from Remote Desktop inconsistently. Instead, use the bot scheduling option, Run Bot Runner session on Control Room.
