Setting Security Features for a Task
Security priorities prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information contained within tasks.
Automation Anywhere provides advanced security for running tasks. Select Security from the PROPERTIES tab for configurable options. The Security options include:
- Running this task in stealth mode
- Use this option to prevent information from being displayed on the screen
while the task is running in Auto-Login mode. Application windows and programs
are hidden from the screen to avoid unauthorized users seeing the
information.Note: You can use the stealth mode only for the tasks that are recorded using the Web Recorder.
- Disable mouse and keyboard for this task
- Use this option to disable the computer mouse and keyboard while the task is
running in Auto-Login mode. Unauthorized users are prohibited from gaining
control of the computer while the task runs. If the computer recognizes an
unauthorized user who is accessing the computer, Automation Anywhere
automatically locks the computer. Note: For this option to work you must ensure that the Run Task as an Administrator option is enabled in Tools→ Options→ Runtime Settings.
Tip: Use auto-login along with stealth mode in order to prevent unauthorized access as well as any information from being displayed on the screen while the task is completed.
Note: When nesting automation tasks, if a parent task runs a child task, the Auto-Login settings of the parent take effect, regardless of the settings of the child.
