Connect to Automation Anywhere Control Room

How to connect and login to the Control Room using either the Enterprise client login window or the command prompt.

Overview

Automation Anywhere allows users to monitor and administer a large multi-site, and complex automation infrastructure using the web-based Control Room. Learn how to connect and log in to the Control Room using either the Enterprise client login window or the command prompt.

Authentication

There are three forms of client authentication for accessing theControl Room:

Windows or Active Directory (AD)
If the Control Room is configured for Windows AD authentication type, you select Windows authentication, and you do not need to provide any credentials. You are authenticated with your AD or Windows credentials. This option is selected by default.
Tip: If for any reason automatic Windows authentication fails, choose the User Credentials option to continue.
Single Sign-On (SSO)
SSO is available when the Control Room is configured for SSO SAML 2.0 authentication type. When you select this option, you do not enter credentials directly on the Client Login screen. Instead, when you click Login, you are redirected to your organization's IdP authentication page where you must log in using your SSO credentials.
Note:
  • A registry entry (32 bit) is made under
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION
    since Enterprise client makes use of the same rendering engine used by Internet Explorer to display the SSO authentication page.
  • You might experience some issues with the login display if the authentication page has trouble while rendering in Internet Explorer. If IdP login page does not render properly, add the Idp Login URL in the trusted sites for Internet Explorer browser.
User Credentials
This method is available when the Control Room is configured for Database authentication type. When you select this option, you enter the user credentials that were created by the Control Room administrator. Contact your Control Room administrator in case you forget your password.
