Browser requirements for RPA Workspace
Access the RPA Workspace interface from a browser. After you have installed and enabled extensions in the browser, perform several tasks through the RPA Workspace interface based on your user role and automation requirements.
You can use a browser to perform a range of tasks from automation creation to automation management, such as the following:
- Control Room tasks, such as creating users and roles, managing devices, configuring settings, creating and deploying bots, and maintaining audit logs.
- User tasks, such as Bot agent installation and device registration.
The following table lists the tasks supported by various browsers:
|Tasks||Google Chrome (version 57 or later)||Internet Explorer (version 11)||Microsoft Edge||Mozilla Firefox|
|Control Room tasks||Yes||Yes||No||No|
|Bot agent installation and device registration1||Yes||Yes||No||No|
- If you have trouble registering your device from a browser, run the Bot agent diagnostic utility.
|Task||Google Chrome (version 57 or later)||Internet Explorer (version 11)||Microsoft Edge (version 79 or later)||Mozilla Firefox (version 80 or later)|
- Record automation refers to opening a target application in a supported browser
and capturing objects using the Automation 360 recorders.
If you have trouble recording automation using Google Chrome, see Google Chrome extension troubleshooting
Extensions for automation
When you install the Bot agent from a browser, extensions for Automation 360 are installed. Extensions are required to record automation using a supported browser.
You can enable extensions on a device from supported browsers. For example, after you install a Bot agent from a Google Chrome browser, click the enable extension option from the browser task bar. The Google Chrome extension will allow you to record automation using the Google Chrome browser.
When you connect your Bot agent device to the Control Room, you can enable the following extensions from your browser to record automation:
|Extension name||Link to extension|
|Google Chrome||Automation 360 extension for Chrome|
|Microsoft Edge based on Chromium||Automation 360 extension for Microsoft Edge|
|Mozilla Firefox||Automation 360 extension for Mozilla Firefox|
