Edit bot-dependent text-based files

As a Bot Creator, you can open, view, edit, and save bot-dependent text-based files directly inside the workbench. Automation 360 supports more than 40 text-based file formats, such as TXT, XML, JSON, and Javascript.


  • You must have a Bot Creator license.
  • You must be assigned a custom role, with the View content and Check out permissions assigned at the folder level.
If you have the Check in permission, you can check in the edited files to the public workspace.


  1. Log in to the Control Room as Bot Creator.
  2. In the Private page, expand the Bots folder and select the folder that contains the bot-dependent text-based files that are added as dependencies.
    Note: You can edit only the text-based dependent files.
  3. Select the file that you want to edit.
  4. From the actions menu (vertical ellipses) on the right, click Edit file to open the file in the text editor.
    The file opens up with all the formatting effects.

    For example, XML files open up with the same formatting as that in code editor, providing you with a similar experience.

  5. Make changes to the file and click Save.
    The changes made to the file are saved.
  6. Click Close.
