Cloud preview sandbox environment

The Cloud preview sandbox environment for Automation 360 Cloud enables you to test your production bots to ensure that these bots work seamlessly in your production environment. Use the Cloud preview sandbox environment to help plan and test new features for upcoming Automation 360 releases.

Benefits

The Cloud preview sandbox environment is the same as any Automation 360 Cloud instance but includes updates from the upcoming new release a few weeks before Automation Anywhere Cloud is updated.
Note: The Cloud preview sandbox environment should not be used as your production environment.
The environment helps Automation 360 Cloud customers to perform these tasks:
  • Test new features and identify any changes that might be required in your current bots.
  • Preview upcoming features and enhancements.
  • Better plan and manage changes for the upcoming update to your environment.
The sandbox environment is available only for Automation 360 cloud and cloud-enabled deployments. The environment is not supported for an Control Room in a data center that is hosted by you or a third-party vendor. The environment includes upcoming updates for Automation 360, Discovery Bot, AARI, and Bot Insight.
Note: IQ Bot is not included in the sandbox environment.

Prerequisites

  • You must have a valid Automation 360 Cloud license to use the Cloud preview sandbox environment.
  • You must purchase an orderable sandbox SKU.

    Contact your Customer Success Manager (CSM) or Partner Enablement Manager (PEM) for more details.
