Run your first bot

Run a bot from the same device that you used to create the bot.

Prerequisites

Log in to your instance of the Automation Anywhere Control Room, and complete these steps:.

  1. Install Bot agent and register device
  2. Set user device credentials
  3. Create your first bot

These steps describe the guided workflow for first-time users. The guided workflow is only displayed the very first time you complete these steps.

You can run a bot from the following devices:

  • The same device you are using to log in to the Control Room.
  • Another device you registered that has the same login credentials as the machine you are using to log in to your Community Control Room or a device with defined credentials in the Control Room.
Note: Windows NT LAN Manager (NTLM) is a challenge or response authentication method that enables clients to provide their user name and password as encrypted credentials or plain text. Use Google Chrome browser to enable the Automation Anywhere extension and capture the proxy information. After the proxy information is captured, you can use any browser to run a bot in Automation 360.

Procedure

  1. Locate and select your bot.
    From your Control Room dashboard left panel, select Automation. A list of available bots and forms is displayed.
