RPA Bots for Salesforce 3.0 Release Notes
Review the new and changed features in RPA Bots for Salesforce version 3.0.
Supported Automation Anywhere Enterprise versions
Supported for Automation 360 Cloud deployment and On-Premises.
The RPA Bots for Salesforce solution in the Automation Anywhere platform enables users to run bots for routine business processes from any Salesforce Cloud record page.
|Maintain multiple Control Room
Multiple Control Room connections can now be created in the RPA Bots for Salesforce App. This feature enables you to maintain connections to multiple Control Room instances or as a way to enable multiple connections to the same Control Room. For example, when departmental access are required through dedicated logins for auditing and compliance.
|Manage incoming data in Bot Configuration wizard
Users can map bot output variables to data fields of a specified Salesforce object. The field also enables the user to specify one of five operations to apply to the incoming data: None, Create, Update, Upsert, or Delete.
|Quickly select a bot by using subfolders
The Bot Directory tree component simplifies selecting bots in the Bot Configuration wizard.
|Improved parameters for bot configurations
|You can now select bots quickly with a real-time search feature that filters results in the bot search field as keywords are entered.|
|Bot configuration supports additional data
Numerous data types are now included for configuration in RPA Bots for Salesforce. When you select a variable of either input or output type from the bot, the Salesforce drop-down menu automatically filters by data type to match the variable.
|Updated features of Automation Launcher web
|Authentication now allows use of both password and API key
Users can choose a preferred method when creating Control Room connections through the RPA Bots for Salesforce application.
|Device pool is now an optional parameter.|
Notifications (through the Salesforce Customer Notification framework) are now provided after a bot completes running successfully, or if it fails. Notifications are also provided on completion of a callback operation, and when a bot is triggered to run from a Process Builder or Lightning Flow. Each notification is an active link and you use it to navigate to the corresponding record detail page.
|Unable to connect to Control Room
When you attempt to connect Salesforce apps to the Control Room API with an HTTPS connection, the following error might occur: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
Due to Salesforce guidelines placed on trusted certificates, an authorized connection might require an intermediate certificate (certificate chain) that requires proper installation and configuration.
Workaround: Confirm the certificate issue by using an online SSL test.
When the confirmation is complete, follow these instructions to install the certificate and connect the Control Room API.
