Automatic package updates for On-Premises Control Room

Configure the On-Premises Control Room settings to get package updates from the Cloud automatically or only when the Control Room is upgraded manually.

Seamless package update capability is part of our effort to make innovations and enhancements readily available to you. This capability in the Automation 360 platform provides you predictable, qualitative, and non-disruptive access to the latest innovations and enhancements.

When this seamless update capability is enabled, the Control Room can download new packages and new versions of existing packages from Automation Anywhere Cloud when they are released on a regular and predictable release cadence. Newly downloaded package versions are automatically set as default packages so that customers can start using these package versions on an ongoing basis as the packages become available.
Note: To automatically download newly released package versions, the Control Room uses the following URL and port number:
  • URL:<package-jar-file-name>
  • Port number: TCP 443 (HTTPS)

Note that this capability has no impact on existing bots. Existing bots continue to run unchanged. These new package versions are also backward-compatible with the existing platform version.

Configure packages for On-Premises

Ensure that you are logged in to the On-Premises Control Room as administrator.

  1. Navigate to Administration > Settings > Packages.
  2. Edit the Packages option. The page opens in edit mode.
  3. Select On to automatically download and install new packages from Automation Anywhere Cloud to the Control Room.

    By default, Automatically update packages from the cloud is set to Off.

    When you enable this setting, the system checks for new packages every 12 hours and automatically installs them if new packages are available.

    Note: The new package version is downloaded and installed only if it is compatible with your Control Room version.
  4. Enable the settings to configure the default version of the package.

    This is applicable for new packages downloaded from the Cloud and the Control Room upgrade. By default, this setting is set to On.

    • Select On to automatically set the new version of a package as the default version.
    • Select Off to manually set the default version after the package update.
  5. Save the settings.
