  • Users without AAE_Admin role must have the following permissions to edit a device pool:
    • View and manage ALL device(s) to add or delete the devices
    • View Users and Roles basic information to add or delete the owners and consumers
  • If you want to add a device in the device pool, then it must be installed as system wide device (Bot Agent).
  • Once you add a device to a device pool, you cannot add the same device to any other device pool.

When you open the device pool in edit mode, you can update the queue details such as Bot Runner, Owners, Participants, and Consumers.
