Create new bot connection in RPA Bots for Salesforce
Create a connection from an Automation Anywhere Control Room in the Salesforce Connections tab to use in a bot configuration.
Ensure you have the Control Room URL and password to authenticate a new connection. Another option is to generate an API key to use instead of your password.
The default view of the Connections tab lists the Recently Viewed connections, which might be blank for first time users. To run any bot through the RPA Bots for Salesforce, you must first have a successful live connection to a Control Room. Additional connections can be customized as alternatives to use for specific business needs.
Create and customize new connections for your individual business needs. Choose a connection name that complements the connection type for users to configure automations appropriately. This will optimize organizing channels and reports throughout your experience.
