Customize settings post-installation on Google Cloud Platform

After installation is complete, configure Control Room settings on Google Cloud Platform.


Complete the installation steps in Customize Control Room installation on Google Cloud Platform.


  1. Enter the SVN Repository path.
    This is the location where the uploaded automation files, for example, MetaBots, IQ Bots, and Task Bots are stored.
  2. Enter the F5 URL in the Control Room URL field.
    This is the URL for accessing your installation of Control Room.
  3. Click Save and continue.
    Important: The back button of your Web browser automatically disables after you click Save and continue. This ensures that the Credential Vault Master Key that generates matches the repository path and Control Room access URL.

    To return to the Configure Control Room settings page, press Ctrl plus F5 and restart.

    The Credential Vault settings page appears.
  4. Select the Manual mode option.
    With this option, you store the Master Key on your own, and then provide the Master Key when the Credential Vault is locked. Users use the Master Key to connect to the Credential Vault to secure their credentials and access them when creating and running Task Bots.
    Warning: If you lose the key, you will not be able to access the Control Room.
  5. Click Save and continue.
    Important: The back button of the Web browser automatically disables after you click Save and continue. No further changes to the Control Room configuration or Credential Vault settings are allowed.

    To make changes, reinstall the Control Room.

    The Authentication type for Control Room users page appears.
  6. Select the Active Directory option.
  7. Type the Domain username.

    Ensure you use the User Principal Name (UPN) in the format.

    The username you enter must be for a user who has access to all domains using the same credentials.

  8. Type the Domain password.
    This user is not expected to use the Control Room. Although you have an option to update the password, use an Account with the password never expires option. If it expires, it can be updated but with some downtime.
  9. Click Discover connections.
    All discovered Active Directory domains with one or more sites per domain are shown.
    By default all domains and sites are selected. If only one domain and one site under it is discovered, then it is shown in read-only mode and cannot be edited.
  10. Select the domains and sites to use for authentication.
    Select a minimum of one site per domain.
  11. Click Check connection.

    If Control Room is unable to connect to the Active Directory database, an error message appears.

  12. Click Next.
    The Control Room first administrator page appears.
  13. Select the Active Directory domain from the drop-down list and type the Control Room administrator username.
  14. Click Check name in Active Directory.
    If the username is in the Active Directory the following user details are shown:
    • First name
    • Last name
    • Email

    You can edit these prepopulated fields.

  15. Click Save and log in.

    You are logged in to the Control Room as an administrator. You can now configure and manage the overall RPA environment with Control Room and clients.
