Migrate to Automation 360 IQ Bot

Migration is the process of upgrading from earlier versions of IQ Bot (Enterprise 11.x, 6.x, or 5.x) to the latest Automation 360 IQ Bot version. This includes replicating your existing database and repository, converting your bots to Automation 360 format, and migrating all the learning instances.

Plan your migration

Automation 360 IQ Bot features and functionality are the same as IQ Bot Enterprise 11. The existing Enterprise 11 content also applies to Automation 360 IQ Bot.

    Automation 360 IQ Bot version compatibility

  • Before migrating from IQ Bot 11.x to Automation 360 IQ Bot On-Premises, ensure you have downloaded the latest version of the Database Migration Assistant from Automation Anywhere Support site.
    This tool enables you to migrate data and is supported on the following Microsoft SQL Server versions:
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2019 15.0 Developer Edition and Express Edition
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2016 13.0 Express Edition
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express Edition
  • If you are migrating from IQ Bot 11.x to Automation 360 IQ Bot On-Premises, we recommend that you have a 3-node cluster to ensure high availability (HA) for IQ Bot.

    High availability and disaster recovery overview

  • For RabbitMQ disaster recovery (DR), we recommend that you have the same number of nodes in the primary and secondary sites to achieve same load handling capability.

    Similarly, the RabbitMQ cluster setup of the secondary site must replicate the cluster setup of the primary site.

Choose your migration path

Choose your migration path based on the IQ Bot version you are currently using and the Automation 360 IQ Bot deployment model that meets your business requirements.

Important: In earlier IQ Bot versions, five databases were created, and in Automation 360 IQ Bot a single unified database is created. So ensure you back up your existing IQ Bot databases before you start the migration.
