Use these tasks to register for, and start creating and using bots with Automation Anywhere Community Edition A2019.

Procedure

  1. Register for the Automation Anywhere Community Edition:
    1. From the Automation Anywhere website https://www.automationanywhere.com scroll to and click the Get Community Edition option.
      Alternatively, select Customers & Partners > A People Community > Community Edition. Scroll to the registration form: GET COMMUNITY TODAY.
    2. Enter your identification information in the form that appears.
      The form information includes your first name, last name, email, country, phone number, and company. This information is used to create your Community Edition user login credentials.
      Restriction: Only the period/dot (.) and at sign (@) are allowed in the email field. No other special characters are supported.
    3. Read and agree to the terms, privacy policy, and license agreement. Select and click Submit.
      Wait for the email from Automation Anywhere that contains the information for you to log in to the Community Edition. The email includes the Community Control Room URL, your username, and assigned user password. After you log in, you are prompted to reset your password.

      To learn more, access the course titled Did You Know that You can Create Automations without Installing Enterprise Application? (Automation 360) from Automation Anywhere University: RPA Training and Certification (A-People login required). This course introduces you to learn how to download and register as a new Community Edition user.

  2. Log in to Automation Anywhere Control Room.
    To log in to Automation 360, open the Control Room URL in your browser, enter your credentials in the login screen, and click Log in.
  3. Install the Bot agent, register your device, and set user device credentials.
    The Bot agent is a lightweight application that enables you to run bots on your device by connecting the device to the Control Room. To run bots on a local machine, install the Bot agent and add the local device to the list of enabled host devices.

    To enable a device for running bots, set the local device credentials.

    If you are using an operating system other than Windows, you will not be able to install the Bot agent at this time. See system requirements. However, you can still build bots using the Bot editor.

  4. Create your first bot.
    Follow these steps to create your first bot that prints the message, Go be great!, the Automation Anywhere version of Hello World!
  5. Run your first bot.
    Run a bot from the same device that you used to create the bot.
