  1. Run the IQ Bot installer.
  2. Install the Tegaki API OCR engine for the On-Premises version on your machine based on instructions received from your Automation Anywhere representative.
  3. Next, install your license key. IQ Bot does not provide you with the license to use the Tegaki API OCRengine. You have to use your own license key.
    Follow the steps to install your own license key:
    1. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Automation Anywhere IQ Bot\Configurations.
    2. Set up the Tegaki API endpoint where you have installed the On-Premises version. Set APIKey = <your key here> and configure the TegakiOCREngineSettings.json file.
        "APIKey": "<ensure your key meets UUID format (>”,
        "RestEndpointURL": "<your Tegaki Server URL here>”,
        "RestEndpointPort": <80>,
        "EngineType": 3,
        "EnableFieldMerging": false,
        "EnableFieldRegions": false,
        "DebuggingFolder": "C:\\Users\\Public\\Documents\\Automation Anywhere IQBot Platform\\Logs\\Engine\\Tegaki"
  4. Navigate to ..\Automation Anywhere IQ Bot\Configurations\Settings.txt, and modify the following value: OCREngine=TegakiAPI.
    The TegakiOCREngineSettings.json file is available after IQ Bot installation.
