Anyone else finding the Automation Cloud difficult to use


I have been using an On-premise version 2019.10.5 of Orchestrator/uipath studio and robot for the past year. I have been completing some online courses on UiPath cloud offering to get up to speed with it.

Does anyone else find it very tricky to use? I cannot even publish and run a process on an unattended robot using the Automation Cloud, the new licensing and folder set up just seems unnecessarily complicated to me.

Every time I try to simply provision an unattended robot in Orchestrator I get the following message:

No available licenses: the number of new machine slots would exceed the total license count. (#1916)

Any idea’s how to get to grips with the new Cloud Automation platform having come from 2019.10.5 on premise ?

I agree. Very complicated. ALWAYS run into issues with licenses, not connected etc. Horrible complicated UI now as well. Needs to be fixed asap.
