Run bot with queue

Collectively process all work items of a queue across all the Bot Runners present in one or more device pools.


To run a bot with queue, ensure you are allocated a combination of any or all of the following roles and permissions:

Feature type Privileges
User roles
  • AAE_Admin
  • AAE_Queue_Admin
  • AAE_Pool_Admin
Activity permissions
  • View my in progress activity
  • View my scheduled bots
  • Schedule my bots to run
  • View and manage all scheduled activity from my folders
Device permissions
  • View and manage my Bot Creator, Bot Runner, and device pools
  • Create device pools
  • Administer all device pools
Bots permissions
  • View my bots
  • Run my bots
Workload permissions
  • View and manage my queues
  • Create queues
  • Administer all queues
To Run bot with queue, note the following:
  • You can run bots only on unattended Bot Runners. You cannot run bots on attended Bot Runners from the Control Room.
  • You cannot run bots with queue with administrative privileges.
  • The bots have to be checked in to the public folder in order for the bots to qualify to be run with queue.
  • Only those queues associated with the work item template of the bot are available for selection for which you are the queue consumer.


Use the Run a bot with queue option from any of the following pages:

  1. Activity > In progress
  2. Manage > Scheduled
  3. Manage > Devices
  4. Manage > Device pools
  5. Manage > Queues
The procedure for running a bot with a queue is the same in all these pages.

  1. Select the bot to run with queue.
    Available bots are displayed along with any Input values and dependencies.
  2. Select a queue with which to run the bot.
  3. Select the Bot Runner user from the Available bot runners list.
    To enable a device, it must be connected to the Control Room.
    Note: If a device does not appear in the list, ensure the user running the bots is assigned a role that provides access to the appropriate Run-As Users.
  4. Optional: Select the option to run on bot running devices.
  5. Select Device pools.
    Select the pool from the list of available device pools.
  6. Optional: Click the up or down arrow to set the selected device pools in preferred order.
    When a bot is deployed, the Control Room selects the first available device based on the order in which you organized the device pools. If none of the devices are available at the time of deployment, the bot is queued.
  7. Click Run bot with queue.
