Export bots

You can export a bot from one Control Room to another.


  • Only bots in the public workspace can be exported. To export bots, first check these bots into the public workspace before exporting them to the private workspace.
  • Ensure that you have the View package permissions.
  • Ensure that you have the View content rights at the folder level from which you want to export the bots.
  • Ensure that the version of Control Room and packages in the source and target Control Room are same for export as well as import.

Review the guidelines before you export bots.

Guidelines for exporting and importing bots

Note: The Control Room maintains a maximum of 10 GB of historical export files in the download directory. Files are deleted on a first-in/first-out basis in order to maintain this threshold.


  1. On the left pane, click Automation.
    A list of available bots and forms is displayed.
  2. From the public directory, select the bot you want to export. Click the Export bots icon.
    The selected bot as well as the required dependencies are displayed in the Bots and Files window.
  3. Click Next.
    The bot and its dependencies are ready for export and displayed in the Review Dependencies window.
  4. Click Next.
    All related packages are displayed.
  5. Select the necessary packages associated with the bot to export.
    Select Exclude bot packages to remove all packages from the export.
  6. Click Export bots and files.
    All the selected bots are exported into a zip file.
    Note: If you have analytics bots in your Control Room, all the Bot Insight dashboards (default, custom, and published) associated with the bots are also exported into the zip file.
    If you have configured SMTP, an email is sent that contains a link to the zip file of the exported package.
    If you have not configured SMTP, perform the following steps to access the link to the zip file of the exported package:
    1. Navigate to ACTIVITY > Historical.
    2. Search and view the historical activity of the exported package.
    3. Click Download exported zip file.
      A link to download the zip file is displayed.
  7. Use the link to download the zip file and save it to a location for importing it to another Control Room.
