Downloading bots to Control Room repository

Version 11.3.3You can download bots that are available on the My Downloads page to the My bots page.

Prerequisites

Ensure that you have the AAE_Bot Store Consumer role assigned to you. See System created roles.

You must have upload permission to the Bot Store folder available within the My Tasks folder. If the bot or Digital Worker you are downloading contains a MetaBot, you must also have upload permission to the My MetaBots folder.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Bot Store > My Downloads.
  2. Search for the bot that you want to download.
    You can search for a bot or Digital Worker based on the TYPE, NAME, OWNER NAME, and PURCHASE TYPE attributes.
  3. Hover your mouse over the ellipsis to display the Download to my bots icon.
    Note: The Download to my bots icon is available only if you have the AAE_Bot Store Consumer role assigned to you.

    This icon is not available for the bots and Digital Workers that are created in the Enterprise Client version earlier than the Version 11.3.3.

  4. Click the Download to my bots icon.
    The Download to my bots page appears.
  5. Select any of the following options to specify the action to take if the bot package already exists in the Bot Store folder in the Control Room:
    • Skip the file (don't download it): Does not download the bots from the Bot Store that are already available in the bot package.
    • Overwrite the file with the downloaded one: Overwrites the bot available in the Control Room repository with the bot downloaded from the Bot Store.
    • Cancel the download: Cancels the download of the bot from the Bot Store.

    The following options are available if version control is enabled in the Control Room:

    • Create a new version: Creates a new version of the bot that is downloaded from the Bot Store.
    • Skip the file (don't download it): Does not download the bots from the Bot Store that are already available in the bot package and are of the same version.
    • Cancel the download: Cancels the download of the bot from the Bot Store.
    1. Select an option to specify how to handle the production version of the bot if you have selected the Create a new version option:
      • Keep production version as is currently set: Select this option if you do not want to change the current production version of the bot.
      • Set production version to imported version of file: Select this option if you want to change the production version to the version of the downloaded bot.
  6. Click Download to my bots.
    The system downloads the bot package or Digital Worker from the Bot Store, extracts the files from the package, and copies the files into the relevant folders. The system creates a folder with the same name as that of the downloaded bot or Digital Worker within the Bot Store folder. It also creates other relevant folders and copies the dependent bots and other files in those folders.
    Note: If the downloaded bots or Digital Workers contain a MetaBot, that MetaBot is stored in the My MetaBots folder.
    You can view the progress of the bot being downloaded from the In progress activity page. See Monitor in progress activity.
    Note:

    The system does not display an error message if the download fails. The reason for why the download failed is available on the Audit log page.

    If the bot or Digital Worker you have downloaded from the Bot Store uses any credential variables, these variables are not created in the Credential Vault.

    Version 11.3.5An unprotected bot downloaded through the Bot Store can have a duplicate GUID. Control Room will create a new unique GUID for the downloaded bot to avoid data conflict in the Bot Insight dashboard.
