Configure deployment type for bots

You can configure the deployment type for your bot tasks. This determines how the bots in the process will deployed. You can also define the mapping between run-as user and the device.

Prerequisites

This mapping will help take care of constraints if any in your organizational set up such as credential constraints requiring one to one mapping between devices and run-as user.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Manage > Process.
  2. Select the process.
  3. Select the Deployment tab.
  4. In the Deployment type field, select one of the following options:
    • Prefer default device - The bot deploys on the default device of the unattended Bot Runner user. If default device is unavailable, the bot deploys on the available device in the device pool. All the unattended Bot Runner users in the scheduler user should either have the same device credentials (user name and password) or the different user name and password credentials that are set in all the devices. If the password is different for each device credential, the user name also differs.
    • Run on pool of device - The bot deploys on the available device in the device pool. It overrides the default device of the user.
    • Run only on default device - The bot deploys only on the default device of the user. In this option, the unattended Bot Runner user should own the default device. If the device is jointly owned by the unattended Bot Runner user along with another licensed user, the device is not used as the unattended Bot Runner user is considered to have no default device. If the scheduler user has multiple unattended Bot Runner users and one of those users do not have a default device, the bot deployment fails.
  5. Click Close.
