- Secure recording mode ensures that sensitive data is not stored in the bots. When secure recording mode is enabled, the bots do not capture values of certain properties or store

Validation happens at the time of running the bot, for new bots. For migrated bots, this check is performed immediately after bot migration, per configuration.
For example, if a parent bot calls a child bot and the child bot has compilation errors, these errors are displayed when you try to run the parent bot. This ensures that an error does not occur in the middle of an automation or make it an incomplete automation.
In the Bot migration results page, select a bot that needs review. Click the three dots under Reason tab to see the details. With the Bot validation feature set to On, the bots that have compile time errors are displayed as a separate line entry in the migration report.
Migrated bots with compilation errors are shown in Successful with Review section of the migration report and ensures that you can get a list of bots that require your attention.
