New features

Control Room new features
Feature Description
Automation Anywhere Control Room user interface localization A Control Room user can change the language of the application's user interface by selecting English (United States), French, Japanese, and Korean from the Control Room. See Control Room interface overview.
Password type attribute in Credential Vault (Zendesk # 48249, 49478,52363, 62880, 65358, 84852,100452, 138760, 138779, 141926, 178161) When creating a credential, you can now mark a specific attribute as a password type to ensure that a password-type attribute selection can only be made from the password field in the commands supporting the Credential Vault variables in the Enterprise Client interface. This feature enhances the security of credential variables because the password-type attributes are not exposed and the value cannot be printed in a plain text application.
Note: Existing bot users must modify their credential variable definition to use this feature. However, the bots require no modification.

See Create a credential.
