      3. UninstallPython.bat
      4. UninstallPython385.bat
      These files remove the registry entries of RabbitMQ, Erlang/OTP relevant IQ Bot Python. No other Python versions are affected.
    3. Restart your machine.
  2. Install Automation 360 IQ Bot

    2. Install the Automation 360 IQ Bot build.
    3. During installation, specify the same host name where the IQBot database was created.

    6. (Optional) Restart the Cognitive Console service if IQ Bot fails to load.
  3. Register Automation 360 IQ Bot
    1. Register IQ Bot A360.x with the Control Room.
      x refers to the latest version of Automation 360 IQ Bot.
      Troubleshooting:
      • If the login page is not displayed after registering IQ Bot A360.x, restart the Control Room services (Control Room and Control Room Reverse proxy).
      • If none of the domains or dashboards are displayed when you log in to Automation 360 IQ Bot after a successful migration, perform the following steps:
        • Press the F12 key and click the Network tab to view the APIs.

          If the APIs are unauthorized or display an error message, restart the IQ Bot service.

        • If the bots are not displayed in the learning instances, clear the browser cache.
    2. After the registration, restart the Automation Anywhere Cognitive Application service.
  4. Modify the output file name
    1. After the data is migrated, ensure you modify the name of the output .csv file.
      The output .csv file in Automation 360 IQ Bot contains additional characters. If you are using the download command, use the following instructions to edit the output .csv filename:
      • Remove the brackets [ ].
      • Replace the underscore (_) character with a hyphen (–).
      • Replace spaces with underscore (_).

        For example, if the output .csv filename is [sales-7d6 961f3d28]_Invoice.tiff, rename it as sales-7d6_961f3d28-Invoice.tiff.
