Add or remove manual dependencies

Version 11.3.1.5Use the Manage Dependencies option from the Control Room to manually add or remove dependent files to or from a TaskBot during bot deployment.

Prerequisites

Note: This feature is available only for Control Room Version 11.3.1.5.

You require the following permissions:

  • Ensure you have Run my bots or View and manage ALL scheduled activity, or both feature permissions.
  • If Version Control System is enabled, a user with Schedule bots permission must set the production version.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Bots > My bots.
  2. From the left panel, select a folder from the Folders list that contains the TaskBot.
    Important: The folder containing the TaskBot must have Run or Schedule, or Run + Schedule permissions to manage the dependencies.
  3. Click the vertical ellipsis of the TaskBot (.atmx file) to which you want to add the dependent files.
  4. Select the View bot option.
    The details of the TaskBot appears.
  5. Click the Manage Dependencies option.
  6. On the left panel, select a folder from the Folders list to add dependent files to the TaskBot.
    Note: You can manage dependencies only from My Docs, My Exes, and My Scripts folders or subfolders. You must have Run or Schedule, or Run + Schedule permissions on these folders.
  7. On the page that appears, choose one of the following actions:
    OptionAction
    Add dependencies Select the dependencies listed in the Available items and move them to the Selected items.

    You can add the same file as a Reference dependency as well as a Manual dependency to the TaskBot.

    Recommendation: The best practice is not to add TaskBots (.atmx files) as manual dependencies. If they are added, the dependency will not be deployed on the Bot Runner machine.
    Remove dependencies Select the dependencies listed in the Selected items and move them to the Available items items.
  8. Click Update to save the changes.
    The manual dependencies are added to the Review dependencies for <taskbot> section on the View bot page and tagged as Manual.
After the manual dependencies are added to the TaskBot, the dependencies are resolved during bot automation.
