Create a process automation in Process Composer

As a Bot Creator, you create and design process automations which consist of human and botbot tasks listed as elements in the Process Composer.


  • You must have a Bot Creator license.
  • You must be assigned a custom role with the create folder permission.
    Note: Each task, logic condition, and end point supports the copy, paste, and cut elements from the Bot editor. Additionally, you can double-click to add and replace items on the canvas. See Supported behaviors for tasks and elements in Process Composer.


  1. Create a process automation:
    1. From your local machine, log in to your Control Room as a Bot Creator.
    2. From the left pane, click Automation, and then click Create new > Process.
    3. In the Create process page, enter a name for the new process automation. By default, process automations are saved in the \Bots\ folder. Click Browse to change the default folder.
    4. Click Create & edit.
    5. Click the process automation name to rename it.
  2. To add initial form and data to the process automation, click Start.

    3. In the Request title field, enter text or insert a variable as an input variable. A dynamic title is created for this request that will display in the web interface and serve as a reference.
      Note: You can use a Reference ID such as ref ID = $RefId$. Reference ID is a Meta variable type.
