Floating Robot

How to proceed with floating robot, I have created robot but it is disconnected

Hope this helps!!!

were you able to connect with standard robot?

Floating robot is for connecting different machines with a single orchestrator @KarthikBallary,

As I hope you are using community orchestrator, try provisioning the standard robot and remaining everything is same as in this video :slight_smile:

so u mean community edition don’t have floating robot option?

@KarthikBallary, you can create a standardized BOT which will work for any machine and deploy. It will be called as floating BOT. It means the BOT does not required any specific configuration for executions.

Hi @KarthikBallary,

you can use floating bot by having the following irrespective of community or enterprise.

  1. A Non-Persistent VDI.
  2. Active Directory users.
  3. Attended bot.

Try installing studio and robot in any other machine and in the robot tray, connect the orchestrator URL and machine. @KarthikBallary

ok how to add environment to floating robot

Similar to the standard robots, click on the environments tab, select manage and then add the robot to environment @KarthikBallary

Okay got it. but if other user clicks to run the job. It is getting failed. I have to run that by opening robot clicking on play. but vice versa not same situation

Hi @HareeshMR,

First, thank you for your answer!

I have one confusing thing.

  1. There is robot in platform.uipath.com.
  2. And a robot is to be installed in a computer where a UiPath Studio is installed, so the computer can be connected to the platform.uipath.com.

The robot in the number 2 above, to me, seems to have to do with the robot in the number 1. What is the robot in the number 2?

Thank you and your even short answer will be much appreciated!
