Uploading MetaBots to Control Room

MetaBots can be uploaded to the Control Room from where any number of Bot Creator Clients with MetaBot license can download and integrate them within automation tasks.

  1. In the My MetaBots List, select (highlight) the MetaBot you want to upload.
  2. Upload the MetaBot using one of the following methods:
  • In the Actions button, select Upload from the drop-down list.

  • Context click the MetaBot and select Upload.

  • Go to Repository in Manager, select the MetaBot, and click on Upload.

    Tip: Ensure the MetaBot is closed in the MetaBots Client. Also, note that if the corresponding MetaBot is the only MetaBot that is opened in the MetaBots while uploading, you need to exit from the MetaBots Client.

Uploading MetaBots when Version Control is Enabled

When Version Control is enabled, you can upload a MetaBot to the Control Room repository with comments, after using the 'Edit' option.

  1. In the 'My MetaBots' List, select (highlight) the MetaBot you want to Edit and Upload.
  2. Edit the MetaBot using one of the following methods:
  • In the Actions button, select Upload from the drop-down list.

  • Right click the MetaBot and select Upload.

  • This launches the Upload Comment window:

  • Input your comments and click Save. This uploads the MetaBot to the Control Room.

Uploading Multiple MetaBots

  1. Go to Manage > Repository.
  2. Select the My MetaBots folder in the Client Repository list.
  3. Select multiple MetaBots (use either ctrl or shift keys as required).
  4. Click the Upload button.
  5. In the Upload Files window, the MetaBots that are 'Allowed' to be uploaded are selected; if required, deselect the ones that you do not want to upload.

    Tip: No prefixed icon/sign denotes a successful upload. This ensures that the version history can be used as a reference point by the Client.
    Note: MetaBots marked 'Not Allowed' cannot be uploaded; the reason for which is depicted in the 'Remarks' column.
  6. Add your 'Upload Comments' and click 'Upload'. These comments are applicable to all MetaBots that are uploaded.

Uploading Renamed MetaBots

MetaBots that are already present in the Control Room repository and are renamed from a file system cannot be reuploaded to the Control Room repository. If you attempt to upload such a MetaBot from the Client, the system displays an error message.

When you upload the renamed MetaBot(s) from the Repository, following messages appear:

  • For a MetaBot:

  • For multiple MetaBots:

You will have to revert to its original name in order to upload it.
