Migrate new or updated Enterprise 10 bots to Automation 360

The Enterprise 10 export utility enables you to migrate new or modified Enterprise 10 bots to Automation 360 after an earlier migration.

Use the export utility to create an .aapkg package that can be imported using the Bot Lifecycle Management and then migrated using the Bot Migration Wizard in Automation 360.

Procedure

  1. Download the latest version of the bot export utility from the Automation Anywhere Support site.
    1. Navigate to the Automation Anywhere Downloads page: A-People Downloads page (Login required).
    2. Click the Automation 360 link.
    3. Click Installation Setup, and then click AAE_Export_Legacy_Bots_v1.zip file.
  2. Extract the files from the zip file you have downloaded.
  3. Open the Windows command prompt.
  4. Change the working directory to AAE_Export_Legacy_Bots_v1 and enter the following command: bin\java -jar AAE_Export_Legacy_Bots_v1.jar -INPUT="INPUT LOCATION" -OUTPUT="OUTPUT LOCATION" -INCLUDE_SUBFOLDERS
    Update the following values in the command:
    • INPUT: Replace the text with the file path or folder path of the Control Room repository from where the bot files (.atmx and .mbot files) have to be exported.
      • Ensure that the folders mentioned in the location exist.
      • Ensure that you specify the location of the input folder in double quotation marks.
    • OUTPUT: Replace the text with an output location where you want to store the exported bot files in a package (.aapkg) with time stamp.
      • Ensure that the folders mentioned in the location exist.
      • Ensure that you specify the location of the output folder in double quotation marks.
    • INCLUDE_SUBFOLDERS: Provide this optional parameter to indicate whether the bot files from the nested subfolders of the Control Room repository should be exported or not.
    Command example to export folder: bin\java -jar AAE_Export_Legacy_Bots_v1.jar -INPUT="E:\Migration10x\Automation Anywhere Server Files\Default\Automation Anywhere\My Tasks\10X\Sample_Tasks" -OUTPUT="F:\10x-Export-Utility\Exported-Bots"
    Command example to export file: bin\java -jar AAE_Export_Legacy_Bots_v1.jar -INPUT="E:\Migration10x\Automation Anywhere Server Files\Default\Automation Anywhere\My Tasks\10X\AutomationTask.atmx" -OUTPUT="F:\10x-Export-Utility\Exported-Bots"
    The utility generates the .aapkg file at the output location you specified.
