    You need a Control Room administrator role to set a user as a multi-login service user. It is possible to set a user as a multi-login user either in the UI or API, however a user may only access multiple sessions through the API.
  7. Assign a device license to the user.
    None The user will have access to the Control Room only.
    Bot Creator- Development license Enables user to create and run bots. Auto login enabled by default.
    Unattended Bot Runner - Run-time license Users with this license can perform all automation tasks that attended users can perform. Additionally, this license can also be used for Control Room deployment, centralized scheduling, and API-based deployment.
    Attended Bot Runner - Run-time license Users with this license can run bots on their devices and use any event trigger associated with their user account or role. However, these users cannot schedule bots.
    Citizen Developer - Development license Users with this license can create and run bots (including bots with triggers) on their devices.
    After you select a device license, the Device login credentials are enabled. If you have the Attest device credentials permission, you can choose to attest the device credentials for this user to bypass credential validation when you deploy bots. The Bot Runner user should have an unlocked and active user session.
    Note: This works only if the auto login setting Reuse an existing session is selected in the Control Room by the administrator.
