Export bots

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

Prerequisites

  • 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.

Procedure

  1. On the left pane, click Automation.
    A list of available bots and forms is displayed.
  2. Click Export bots icon in the public workspace.
  3. Select the bot you want to export.
    • Latest version: Click Latest version tab to select the latest version of the bot.
    • Labeled version: Click Production version tab to select the labeled version of the bot.
  4. Click Next.
    The bot and its dependencies are ready for export and displayed in the Review Dependencies window. If the production label option is selected for the parent bot, the corresponding dependent bots with the production label are also automatically selected. If any of the dependent bots do not have the production label applied, the latest version of the bot is selected.
  5. Click Next.
    All related packages are displayed.
  6. Select the necessary packages associated with the bot to export.
    Select Exclude bot packages to remove all packages from the export.
  7. 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.
  8. Use the link to download the zip file and save it to a location for importing it to another Control Room.
