Set up Control Room for RPA Bots for Mule 4

To run and manage bots using the connector, you must establish a connection to the Control Room and enable variables to return data from the bot to MuleSoft and vice versa.

Verify that your device meets the following prerequisites:
  • IP address or URL to your Control Room with a secure, online internet connection
  • Control Room A2019 or Version 11.3.2.2
  • Enterprise client Version 11.3.2.2 or later
  • Control Room login information with user name and password or API Key
  • Control Room Admin account to view bots and Bot Runners
  • Bot Creator license to create bots

    Create a dedicated Bot Creator user for the connector.

  • Bot Runner license to run bots

    Create a dedicated Bot Runner user for the connector.

  • Create a MuleSoft user who will execute bots and pass data using the connector to automate their business processes.

Procedure

    2. Go to Administration > Settings > General.
    3. Click Control Room Database & Software.
