Add queue, Bot Runner, and device pool

Add a queue, Bot Runner, and device pool to the automation from the Run bot with queue page.


This task is performed by the Control Room administrator. You must have the necessary rights and permissions to complete this task. Ensure you are logged in to the Control Room as the administrator.

Automation processes are queued until the specified Run as user and devices become available. Queuing permits other automation processes for that specific Run as user until the specified device becomes available.​ Any In use queues are shown as disabled in the Available queues list.

You can deploy the automation on the number of users that you choose with the Run as option and not on the total number of devices available in a device pool. Select only those queues that are not in use.
Note: You cannot use multiple queues to add Bot Runners.


  1. Select a Queue from the Queues list.
    The queues for which you have consumer access and same work item template as the selected bot are listed.
  2. Click Next.
  3. In the Run as tab, select a Bot Runner from the Available bot runners list.
    Select the Run on bot running devices option when you want to select Bot Runners that are mapped one-on-one with their default devices. This option enables the Work Items to be deployed only to the user's default device where the security policy does not allow a user to log in to any other device or devices.
    If you select this option, ensure that all the default devices are part of the same device pool when you select from the Device Pool tab in Step 5.
  4. Click Next.
  5. In the Device pool tab, select a Device Pool from the Available device pools list.
  6. Click Add.
    The queue and device pool are added to the run bot with the queue list.
  7. Optional: Click Remove to replace the queue or the device.
  8. Click Run bot with queue.
    The queue status changes to In use on the Queues page.
