Connect several users at different times in a floating robot?

Connect several users at different times in a floating robot.

Is your question, how do you connect multiple users on the same floating robot?

The robot needs to disconnect from the previous user before the next user gets connected to the robot. That means the user will need to either click on Disconnect on the UiRobot icon in bottom right corner OR they need to sign off of their user. Then, the other user will get connected to the robot automatically.

For example, I use a floating robot to connect to multiple servers, but I need to sign off from one server before the other server will connect to my robot. I hope that makes sense.



I have created a floating robot. which consists of only one user. I have disconnected my robot. but floating robot is still disconnected

Sometimes you need to open the UiRobot.exe on that user or click the icon in your Task bar bottom right corner in order to wake it up and connect.

If that doesn’t work, make sure you have the machine added in Orchestrator under Machines tab.

Hope that helps.


I created a floating robot for machine A(my laptop), & ran a process published from my laptop(studio) to orchestrator by connected my robot agent to orchestrator using domain/username & Machine key combination.
I want to add office PC as machine B in orchestrator (connect robot agent in office PC (to orchestrator with different domain/username & machine key combination) & use the same floating robot to run same process in machine B(Office PC)
How do I setup Office PC(what all I need to install - i don’t need whole package here, just the robot agent) to just trigger the floating robot & run the same process(my understanding is Robot agent downloads the process/package from orchestrator & runs it).
Any suggestions… ?

Hi @Snigdha_S
In the past, the Robot.exe agent was included with Studio installation. I don’t know if that has changed though, so you should search the forums or escalate the question to UiPath support.
