Edit the Bot agent installer file

Edit the Bot agent MSI installer file to add the registration key and Control Room URL to remotely install the Bot agent on multiple devices.

Prerequisites

This task is performed by the Control Room administrator. You must have the necessary rights and permissions to complete this task.

Ensure the Windows 10 Software Development Kit including Orca and Control Room are installed on your device. You can install Orca from C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.18362.0\x86\Orca-x86_en-us.msi.

Set up the Microsoft Active Directory group policy to remotely install the Bot agent on multiple devices.

Use Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy to remotely install software

Edit the Bot agent.msi file to enable the Control Room administrator to implement the auto-update Bot agent policy.

Procedure

  1. Use the latest AutomationAnywhereBotAgent.msi file from the following locations:
    • Download the file from the Control Room (Administrator > Settings > Bot agent bulk install).

      The download option is available for On-Premises and Cloud deployments.

    • Select the file from the <application filepath>\crui\asset folder. For example C:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Automation360\crui\asset

      This option is available only for On-Premises deployments.

  2. Edit the AutomationAnywhereBotAgent.msi file using Orca tool.
  3. Click the Property option.
  4. Change the value for AA_CRTOKEN and AA_CRURL.
    The AA_CRTOKEN uses the registration key and the AA_CRURL uses the Control Room URL for which the registration key is generated.
  5. Save your changes.
