Organizing Bot Store Digital Workers and bots

A Bot Store folder is now available by default under My Tasks in the Enterprise Client. Create the Master Bot and all other dependent files within a specific directory under the default Bot Store folder in the Enterprise client. This enables you to successfully package Digital Workers or bots before submitting them to the Bot Store.

Bot developers can create many types of Digital Workers or bots in the Bot Store folder to submit to the Bot Store. Therefore, it is important to store the Master Bot and the dependent files in this folder, so that the Digital Worker or bot package structure is consistent with the existing bots in the Bot Store.
Note: You can create sub-folders under the Bot Store folder, but you cannot delete or rename the Bot Store folder.

Organize the Digital Worker or bot package folder under the Bot Store folder as shown in the following example:

Table 1. Sample Digital Worker or Bot Package Structure
Digital Worker Folder Sub-folders
<Digital Worker or bot package name> My Tasks: Can contain only the .atmx file type.

Store the Master Bot and all the other sub-tasks referred by the Master Bot in this sub-folder.

My Metabots: Can contain only the .mbot file type.
Error Folder: Can contain all the file types except .atmx and .mbot files
Input Folder: Can contain all the file types except .atmx and .mbot files
Note: A 'Readme.pdf' must be included in the root folder of the zip file.

Store the MetaBots in the My MetaBots folder. Call the MetaBot within a task under any of the Digital Worker or bot package folders.

Ensure that you add the bot dependencies only from the Bot Store folder or any of its sub-folders under the parent My Tasks folder.

Note: You cannot add the .mbot file to the My Tasks folder. It must be stored in the My Metabots folder.
