Basics on IT infrastructure requiered to deploy Cloud UiPath

Hi all, this is a very basic question. I’m looking at deploying UiPath in my organisation and I’m a bit overwhelmedd about the different products, variants, etc, but I did some investigation.

I’m trying to build a simple proof of concept design where users in my organisation can automate a taks to login into our CMS and leave a comment, every day at 9AM.

I don’t want each users to have to install any additional software on their computers or create an excel so I want everything to be fully cloud based.

They way I would see this working is to develop an UiPath APP where users go and type their username and password for this CMS (or perhaps store the password securely somewhere, that’s secondary) and what is the messages it’s going to be typed, then they click on “send” and the robot logs in the site, logs in, goes to the section and puts the comment there.

So my questions are:

  • With the Cloud Community version the users can login and run the app from there correct?
  • Where is the robot running? I believe you have to install in a PC/server the robot that will be automated actions but how does the Cloud version works? do you have to install that software on a server and link it so from cloud all tasks can be run on the designated PC/server?
  • I understand that there is only 2 Attended robots so actions will be queued, like if one action takes 10 minute to complete the others will run in the next when the bot is “free” again.

Thanks in advance
